Klipspringer Mountain Bike Trail
Enjoy the beauty of the Overberg
Only two hours from Cape Town, come and experience some awesome mountain biking on our custom built trails, which starts and finish at Lomond Wine Farm. The circular Klipspringer route takes riders through the Lomond vineyards and then up through magnificent fynbos of the conservancy. The climb is tough, but the views at the top are worth the effort. If you take time for a breather you can look out over the Lomond vineyards across to the coast and distant Dyer Island. The climb is followed by a fast downhill on a rough jeep track with some fun sharp bends to keep you alert. After some downhill thrills through Goedvertrouw guest farm, riders take a relaxing ride along the Uilkraals River to the gravel Avoca road. A short section of gravel road riders head up a steep climb onto Grootbos Private Nature Reserve. This is a real oxygen sucker and one will do well to reach the top without pushing. The route then heads to a trig beacon on Grootbos with 360 panoramic views across the Lomond Dam and surrounding fynbos. After some fun riding along old flower picking roads the route reaches Fynbos Retreat and then on over the ridge and down a steep descent into Flower Valley. The ride is started and ended at Lomond Tasting room. The total distance is 25km and includes 600m of climbing.
The other shorter routes include some fun downhill sections designed by professional mountain bike riders, together with volunteer local riders who have joined forces to add jumps and berms to their favourite downhill sections.
