The Southern Drakensberg is fast growing into one of the premier mountain biking destinations in South Africa. Some of the most popular MTB races in the country such as Sani2C and Joberg2C use trails in the Underberg area.

Drak MTB Club hosts two MTB events each year, the Riverlea Drak MTB Xperience and the Sani Transfrontier Epic.

There are also monthly club rides on Sunday mornings and other ad-hoc social rides/meetings.,,

Excellent riding trails are maintained on a commercial basis by Sani Spoors – starting from the Olde Duck Coffeeshop (about 2kms on Route T7 road). These trails offer some of the best forest, river and cattle single track riding in the country., Ed Smith 082 2995234, Ian Bonsma 079 5165507.

The numerous district roads in the Underberg area provide endless scenic riding routes with varying distance and climbing requirements. Sani Pass offers a strenuous and technical 42km ride up/down the pass – starting from the Sani Pass Hotel. Passports are necessary for this ride. A shorter (28km) non technical but very scenic ride is also available to the SA border post and back to the hotel.

All private farms in the area are unfortunately not available to visiting cyclists. Strictly by arrangement, riding on certain farms only, is restricted to Drak MTB Club members only. Please see above contacts for more information on annual package deals for joining both the Drak MTB Club and Sani Spoors. By paying your dues, not trespassing and conserving the environment you will be assisting greatly in preserving the privilege to ride in this beautiful area.
