Looking for a proper off-road cycling trail? We have everything from a relaxing section through the forest to an almost impossible heartbreak hill section. The trail is designed and built to an international standard. At Helderberg Farm you can choose between 4 scenic cycling sections with various levels of difficulty. Each section has been named a different color to distinguish between them. The distance and duration of each section is measured from the starting point. For example, the distance of the red section includes the distances of the green and blue sections altogether.

Green Section  2 km

Blue Section    3 km

Red Section     10 km

Black Section   12 km (Experienced riders ONLY – 600 m ascent)
Downhill No 1 – 1.4 km
Downhill No 2 – 1.5 km
