The Drakensberg just got a whole lot more enticing for mountain bikers with two great offerings from Rockslide Mountain Biking. Their base at the Dragon Peaks Mountain Resort in the Central Drakensberg is the perfect location for one-day and multi-day mountain biking adventures.
An extensive network of routes, that range from very steep and technical to easy-flowing single track, accommodate mountain bikers of all skill levels and fitness. Rockslide Mountain Biking’s Taxi Shuttle Trips see you dropped at the start of your chosen route and collected at the end. A number of trails can be completed in a 4-5 hour session.
If you rate your skills as intermediate to advanced, then Rockslide Mountain Biking’s Heli Mountain Biking package is for you. Feel like a heli-drop skier when you climb aboard the helicopter, with your bike, for a scenic flight to the trail start at 2,000 metres elevation. Wave goodbye to the chopper and then fasten your helmet and pull on your gloves for an unsurpassed mountain biking experience.
A mix of open ridge paths, loose rock gardens, steep rock faces, rock steps, and technical and flowing single track lead you downwards to the waiting taxi shuttle, which will take you to the start of the next run. Approximately 30 kilometres is covered in a 4-5 hour session. A dual suspension bike is highly recommended for heli mountain biking trips.
If a day or two of biking bliss is not enough for you, book for an all-inclusive 7 Day Mountain Biking Tour for a week of riding with Rockslide Mountain Biking taking care of all logistics.
