They say a bicycle’s engine is its passenger. This would ideally mean that the stronger the passenger the more powerful the ride. This of course doesn’t extend to those riders in the tights with uneven tans on their arms that ride along the side of the road. It extends to the boys who aren’t afraid to get mud on their faces and put their foot on the pedal.
The Toyota MTN Cycle Park dares the latter to show what they’re made of on the tracks for R150. A ride around the park really separates the men from the boys and will be a display of endurance at its best. The track was built by international mountain bike trail builder, Geoff Vorpagel and adheres to stringent standards as enforced by the International Mountain Bike Association (IMBA) and the African Mountain Bike Association (AMARIDER).
Whether you’re a seasoned trail biker or simply testing the waters away from your carbon fibre road bike, the Toyota MTN Cycle Park has a track and route for all levels of riding experience. This makes it the ideal place for families to enjoy a relaxed Sunday ride. However, dads are allowed to break away and race their tyres through tougher and rougher terrain.
R150 will give riders access to the park ten times, giving them ample time to take on the various challenges – hills, corners, ramps and jumps. Many of the jumps may test your ability to fly and make for the perfect opportunity to challenge that guy in the office who steals your parking every day.
See where the real boys and adrenalin junky families go to play and show a few hills whose boss at the Toyota MTN Cycle Park.
Biking fact: The first bicycle brakes were made out of moulded glycerine soap in a little town called Hinderlopen in the popular cycling destination, Holland. Hinderlopen is world renowned for its long lasting soap, similar to that of a never ending gob stopper.
