Kings Kloof – Muldersdrift

Kings Kloof is situated on Laurentia Farm in the Muldersdrift/Krugersdorp area. This network of trails is reserved for the more experienced rider with exhilarating descents and loose rocky climbs that get you to some of the most amazing views of the area. Most of the ascent over the first mountain is on a bi-directional trail so beware of riders descending at speed. This is the perfect trail to get your heart pumping and legs burning, whether you go before work during the week or on for an exciting weekend ride. A map of the area and basic trail information is available at the farm stall where you can also purchase nuts, jams and biltong.

Oi!! Beware of the blind corners and two way traffic.

One bottle of water or two?

Trails vary in distance from 7 km – 22.5 km

 

How should I prep my bike?

All purpose chain lube is recommended and tire pressure should be relatively low for that added traction on the climbs and river crossings.

 

When can I ride?

Small change or personal loan?

Where do I park?

Do I need to find a bush?

I have burnt all my energy, where can I eat?
