Have you tried the Vlakkenberg Trail yet?
Posted on October 12 2017The beautiful Vlakkenberg Mountainbike Trail has been built on private land above the Constantia Nek Estate in Hout Bay. It features a 1.3 km cross country loop that allows for various levels of technical ability.
- The lay of the land means the trail is technical and challenging through all its A-lines.
- For the less experienced we have created a B-lines, which means the trail can be enjoyed by all.
The Vlakkenberg Trail is open and accessible to all riders, the only requirement is that you register and pay R60.00 to assist us in looking after this unique piece of land.
Private Client Holdings, the Pedal Power Association and Bicyclegear.co.za have partnered to ensure the trail gets to be enjoyed by all. Their shared vision is to increase riding skills through a maintained and safe cross country mountain bike trail that will eventually hook into the Tokai and Constantia trails.
Luke Hirst, wealth manager at Private Client Holdings and Hout Bay resident, explains “ At Private Client Holdings we take pleasure and pride in nurturing wealth for our private clients and their families. We have a very clear Corporate Social Initiative policy we focus on; Exercise, Education and the Environment. This fantastic initiative of Jonty Berman’s clearly ticks all three boxes. Our association with the Vlakkenberg Mountain Bike Trail means we can take this ethos of nurturing a step further into our environment and have a whole lot of fun exercising at the same time. We hope to get a wider community of cycling enthusiasts involved so they too can be out enjoying our magnificent mountainside.”
