Avianto trails is located at the Avianto clubhouse in a European-inspired village set on the banks of the Crocodile River. This is a venue and hotel catering for birthdays, weddings and team building events. Avianto also boasts a 9 hole ‘Action Golf’ course for those not interested in getting a little dirty, however, the trails cater for all ages with a kiddies 2 km ride, a ‘Green’ beginner 6 km and a ‘Blue’ intermediate 16.5 km. Some ‘Black’ sections have been developed that take you off the blue trail on short technical loops through some exciting forest sections. The trails are very well maintained and surprisingly scenic considering their length. Longer rides can be created by warming up on the green trail before picking up the pace on the blue with a cool down on the green or kiddies trail. The trails are open 7 days a week and an incredible cappuccino can be enjoyed at the clubhouse over weekends or at Café Cielo (near reception) any day of the week.
Oi!! Keep a look out for those action golfers at the end of the blue trail.
One bottle of water or two?
Trails vary in distance from 2 km to 16.5 km.
How should I prep my bike?
All purpose chain lube is recommended. Tubesless tire pressure should be relatively low for that added traction on the climbs while tubed tire pressures should be relatively high to prevent pinch flats.
When can I ride?
Monday – Sunday: sunrise – sunset
Small change or personal loan?
R30 per person (permits sold at the club house on weekends from 06:00 – 14:00 and at the 24 hour reception for the rest of the time).
Where do I park?
Safe and secure parking available.
Do I need to find a bush?
No need, toilet facilities are available at the club house or at Café Cielo.
Take me, quick and easy!
