Build Days

Build days are held during the year. Anyone is welcome to attend and we usually work on specific trail features or build new trail. You are requested to bring some normal tools (e.g spade/rake) and water/snacks.  There is no better feeling than riding a trail that you know you have worked on !

Howick MTB Club Senior Cyclists

Meeting point is the gym at the Howick Hospital, Main Road. Ride on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. The destinations are Midmar Dam (25 km), Midmar Game Reserve (40 km) and the forest around Howick (30 km).

Often meet on Saturdays for a longer ride, followed by breakfast.

These rides are targeted towards the older, or not so high-performance cyclists, who no longer want to use the single tracks. They also favour the social contacts in this group.

All activities are promptly reported on FB with accompanying photos. Please follow this link for up to date plans and be informed about the rides and other activities.

Currently more than 20 cyclists take part in this group.
