Description

The ride begins at Groenkloof Nature Reserve (30 to 40 minutes drive from Sandton) with setting up the bike for the height of the person and explaining how the gears work and how they can increase the power to the pedal assist if needed. E-bikers then practice before moving out. 

e-Bikes effectively make the world flat and are exhilarating to drive uphill. -e-Bikes can accelerate quickly so it is important for safety that participants keep behind the tour guide who will set the pace of 10 to 20kph. E-Biking is dangerous, so this rule must be obeyed. 

The e-bikes will not go on the tricky mountain bike trails. They will stay on the road used by cars. These vary in quality, but with their wide tyres, the e-bikes are geared to handle broken and sand roads. 

Participants can expect to see some of the dozen varieties of animal species including giraffe, ostriches, zebra and several varieties of buck. 

Groenkloof Nature Reserve is a time capsule that was proclaimed some 125 years ago. The guide will also tell you interesting things about the birds, the history (including the iron age caves) and the warring tribes and settlers who made this paradise, with its abundant water from underground springs, their home. 

After the ride while you freshen up a light tea will be served where locally home-made traditional South African treats like melktert, koeksusters and vetkoek are served with a beverage.
