Clarens got a verity of mountain biking trails, the trick of course is to know where to go and where not to go. Clarens Xtreme has negotiate access with some of the farmers and conservancies around town that gave us access to the most amazing mountain biking area most probably in the country
To start getting access to these amazing farm land needed some persuasion and what better than to support our farmers on their security budget. To give you an idea the farming community spends R35 000 per month on their security which in turn also makes our village a safer place. So we are sorry to say that most of our trails require a trail fee, but believe me it is worth it. For the stingy ones who don't want to support our farmers don't worry we got some free trails available, maps cost R20. All trail permits and maps are available at our base from 09h00 - 17h00. All our trails start from the Clarens Xtreme base so don't worry it is a safe place to leave your vehicle if you are out on a ride.
For those on holiday in Clarens during the week looking for cycling buddies make contact with Ollie@ 0825636242 to find out what the riding time for the locals are. Usually they ride Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings ( except winter)
Currently we got a 12km, 20km, 30km and a mean 40km trail. We still have a lot of trails and potential trails that need be marked and developed so be patient and watch this space for new trails.
Village Loop 11km - 25Km
As the name says it is a loop that goes in and around our village ranging from village dirt road, single track some sand stone ridges and lekker technical down hills. Don't let the distance fool you if you are tuff do it twice. The trail has been featured in the Tread magazine. Definitely the best to ride if you don't have time or if you are in the mood for a short technical ride
Rebellie Game farm 30km
One of our free trails which means no trail markings, and of course a lot of gravel farm roads. This trail is a definite must do, it goes into Rebellie game farm which is amazing. And of course don't forget to get to the game farm in the top corner of a mountain means a lot of up hills
So far this is our flagship route. a 46km of note mostly jeep track and a bit of farm road with amazing views. This trail will take you over 6 farms with more than 800m of climb and decent. Make sure you got your trail tag with you for the farmers will get you locked up for trespassing.
One of our free trails which means no trail markings, and of course a lot of gravel farm roads.
This road is ideal if you want to get time in the saddle without any technical riding. This loop can be extended and one can do almost a 100km of gravel road. when you buy the map just ask us for the info on the extension
