The trails are predominantly single track with short sections of paved road linking the various trails.  The terrain is generally flat with undulating hills through the jungle and alongside the reservoir and the start and end point are the same so the route can be extended / shortened depending on your needs of each participant.  Only moderate fitness is required to complete this tour with no more than 200m of ascent during the ride.  Terrain is generally dirt with sections of rock with some roots but generally not technical.


There are various obstacles set up in the vicinity which make for a perfect area for groups to learn essential mountain biking skills in a safe environment, these include how to use brakes effectively, balancing skills, weight distribution and cornering.  Our experienced guides can help teach a number of techniques before trying them on the trail!
