The Details

The team from Paarl Trails have partnered with Ford and Leatt to host an exciting outride and shuttle day from Laborie Wine Estate on the morning of 23 July.

A 20-25km guided trail outride catering for different fitness levels will headline the morning, starting from the Laborie Experience Hub on Sunday. For those in the know, a gravity shuttle experience will also be on offer .

Don’t know what a shuttle day is? Simply, we take you up and you come back down. You only ride the downhills and none of the uphills. The team from Novel Ford Paarl will have a few bakkies on site that will drive riders (and their bicycles) to the gravity / down country trails from where you then ride back down. All free of charge for members. That’s right. Mahala! The trails are fun and graded as intermediate, not technical downhills, just fun descents .

Shuttles will be available all morning so you can do as many runs as you like or even do the outride and then a few shuttles. Activities start from 08:00 at Laborie and Wine Lands members get free access. Non-members simply need to purchase a day pass to join the action.

There are is no extra charge for the shuttles. The day promises to be a lot of fun, so bring the family and join us!

Wine Lands Trails is an initiative between Wine Lands Cycling Club, Paarl Trails, Banhoek Conservancy, Wellington (Wild Boar) Trails, Franschhoek Trails, Elgin Valley Trails, Bottelary Hills Conservancy, MTO and Stellenbosch Trail Fund to consolidate access to these trail networks under one regional permit.
