Description

The Paul Cluver trails start in the amphitheatre treating the rider to Raka and The Swing, one a bridge built on a massive tree trunk, the other a suspension bridge. The fun continues with lots of berms, flowing singletrack with some technical riding. Look out for the Mamba, a rollercoaster through a river valley with 6 bridges. There are some lung busting climbs rewarded with magnificent vistas over the Elgin Valley. The Pofadder is a bermed bridge built from wine barrel slats at the foot of a waterfall followed by more great riding and loads of singletrack.
