X-trax – Bashewa

Xtrax is a mountain bike skills park based 15 minutes from Moreletapark on Garsfontein road in the Pretoria area. The park is on a small holding that consists of a 1.5 km loop that has technical sections of varying difficulty depending which coloured arrow you decide to follow.  This park is aimed at improving your technical skills rather than giving you an aerobic workout.  The Green loop is suitable for children of all ages while the Yello, Red and Black loops are reserved for the experienced riders with  dirt jumps, suspended bridges, drop-offs and gaps in suspended bridges, see-saw bridges and quick and fast ascents and descents. This is truly an exciting venue to spend an hour or two pushing your riding skills to the limit. Braai and seating facilities are located in the centre of all the action so you don’t miss a thing.

Oi!! Take a look at the arrows carefully, it can be a bit tricky at first.
