PwC Cycle Park – Bryanston

If spinning to nowhere on a stationary bike in a sweaty smelly stuffy studio after work is not for you then this cycle park is. Situated in the heart of Bryanston on either side of the N1 high-way it is close enough to frequent to miss the traffic and blow off some steam after a tough day at the office or to introduce your family to the exhilaration of this sport at the weekend without the kids nagging, “Are we there yet?”.

PwC caters for all styles of bike riding with their BMX, jump and pump tracks as well as trail riding. Your kids can also practise their skills with two kiddies tracks available; one is suitable for 2-3 year olds and the second, slightly more challenging, caters for kids up to the age of 12 years.  The trail riding consists of a single jeep track that travels around the perimeter of the property with short selective sections that take you off and bring you back onto the jeep track allowing you to choose the distance and difficulty of your ride. Don’t be fooled by how tame this park looks from the main road; some sections are extremely challenging!

 Oi!! Beware of soft sand in some single track areas and watch out for the large gaps before the collection ramps in the ‘Black’ sections.

One bottle of water or two?

Trails vary in distance from  1 km to 15 km.

 

How should I prep my bike?

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

 

When can I ride?

Tuesday – Sunday, Summer: sunrise – sunset, Winter: 07h00 – 18h00

 

Small change or personal loan? 

R80 per person (multi-day access cards available on request).

 

Where do I park?

Parking is safe and secure with 24/7 security guards stationed across the property.

 

Do I need to find a bush?

No need, there are very clean toilet facilities available next to the refreshments shop.

 

Take me, quick and easy!
