Mountain Biking at Paul Cluver

Mon Tue Wed Thu Fri Sat Sun Hol

Monday - Friday: Paul Cluver Tasting Centre 09h00 - 17h00

Weekend & Public holidays Security gate at entrance of the farm daylight hours  

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 single track.
