Cycling route information
All routes start from the Langebaan Gate.
***All cyclist are expected to pay normal conservation fees at the gate or buy a wild card.***
Cycling routes are as follows:
Langebaan gate – Geelbek & return 30km on tarred road.
- Langebaan gate – Kraalbaai & return 70km on tarred road.
Mountain bike routes:
- The Green trail (follow Green signs) starts at the Langebaan gate and turns right off the tar down on the old Bottelary dirt road (lift your bike over the chain) and joins up with the original old "white road" where you will turn right. Turning left here is not permitted as there is a bush reclamation project underway there. This brings you back out at the Seeberg Bird Hide and it's an easy ride back to the gate. This trail should take you about an hour to ride (13km).
- The Red trail (follow Red signs) uses a similar route, but has two deviations. The first is to turn off to the right up the steep Seeberg lookout road to the top, after which you rejoin the tar road at the same place and continue towards Geelbek. The second is to then turn left at Mooimaak and follow the Red trail signs around Mooimaak and down along a circular route back to the tar road where you would turn left for a short ride to the Bottelary turnoff as indicated on the Green trail. This one should take you just over an hour and a half to get back to the gate (17km).
