Rietvlei Bike Trails Under Construction

With a focus on fun-filled family outings and fresh activities, Rietvlei Zoo Farm management has decided to upgrade its biking trails to better accommodate their two wheel outdoor enthusiasts.


There are three types of biking trails available – Yellow for the novice, Green for the intermediate biker, and Blue for the advanced. While these trails start and end at the same point, they take separate routes.


The trails have been upgraded from 12 to 20 kilometres, giving the bikers more riding time and an adventurous experience. Riding prices vary from R30 for adults, R20 for children and R10 for pensioners.

Bikers are welcome to go on the trails for as many times as they want. This facility is open to the public from sunrise to sunset, seven days a week.


“We are looking at implementing night rides on Wednesday and Friday evenings and hosting cycling parties for the bikers to network and get to know each other,” said Dion Perry, Rietvlei Biking Trails Manager.


The biking trails are made safe for the bikers. There is security roaming around the trails to ensure everyone’s safety and first aid is available on the premises with paramedics on standby.


Bikers can also use the water facility to fill up their water bottles before embarking on a ride in the trails.


Upon visiting the farm you can enjoy its river crossing and natural route bike trail – all you need to do is bring your bike, your helmet and yourself.
