“Stage Two of the Origin Of Trails Short Route will feature two open, easy climbs,” says Corrie Muller, Origin Of Trails Route Designer.  “It will, however, take a while to reach the top of the climbs. The rest of this route is flat. Any technical obstacle will have a suitable B-line.  Riders can look forward to a fun experience, without having to risk injury.”

 

“Iconic sections to look out for will include Mont Marie (with a nice splash at the end) as well as the world renowned G-Spot,” continues Muller.  “Remember the Origin Of Trails MTB Experience is SA’s MTB party of the year.  Take your time and enjoy the beauty of the surrounds, rekindle your love for this amazing sport.  You don’t need to be super fit to enjoy the Origin Of Trails Short Route, but a fair level of fitness will ensure that you get the most out of your experience.”
