MAJIK FOREST TRAILS – PUBLIC OPEN SPACE
This is the perfect place for an after-work ride. It is just a minute or two away from the Tyger Valley Shopping Centre, and has a nice combination of tough climbs to make those leg muscles burn, and single track… with everything in between;- fast smooth paths, rocky sections, bridges, drop-offs and some of the twisty-turny forest trails can be very exciting! The ride along the dam is entrancing, leading to a lovely piece of trail through the lower forest alongside the stream.
A typical loop of the trail can take from 50 minutes for the super fit, to 1 hour 40 minutes for the not-so-fit. Distances vary depending on the route you take, and range from 2km to 15km. All the trails are well marked with yellow arrows, you cannot really get lost, as all tracks are inter-leading. There is a black section at the top of Majik, with ascents that offer serious heart rate numbers and rocky drop-offs to test your mettle and bike control.
There is no entrance fee to ride here.
We have built some single track on the Bloemendal side of Majik Forest but please be advised non-permit holders are not allowed on the Bloemendal side. The Bloemendal Singletrack and Corridor to Ntidia is restricted to our club members and those who have bought a day pass . Lombards Terra is 1.8km of pure fun and adrenalin.
Club Members are allowed to park at the Protea Hotel simply displaying your bike board will get you in. Non members can park at the Mall or on the street.
Please note: No cycling is allowed on the walkways between the houses and the dam.

The second place to park is in the yellow lines near the robot intersection of Van Riebeeckshof Road and Jip de Jager as you come off the M16, although the Spar Car Park has safe parking.
