Mount Grace Hotel – Magaliesburg

The trail at Mount Grace is located above the resort on a private piece of land, made up of a 5 km ‘Long route’ and a 2 km ‘Short route’. These routes can be combined and a few hills climbs can be added using the service road that leads down the mountain to lengthen the cycle. The trail mainly consists of jeep track that leads you around the plateau of the mountain the resort is based on with one or two technical assents or descents depending on which direction you ride the loops. This is suitable for children as the technical sections can be walked quite comfortably.

Oi!! Make sure you do the loops in both directions so that you have a balance of both descending and climbing.

One bottle of water or two?

Can ride for between 2 km and 9 km.

 

How should I prep my bike?

All purpose chain lube is recommended and tubeless tire pressures should be moderate to prevent burping and tube pressures should be relatively high to prevent pinch flats.

Small change or personal loan?
