Klipheuwel Mountain Bike Park is situated just off the N2. In 2016 Klipheuwel built a pump track yet it is with the addition of a cross-country track, that the bike park became a mountain biking destination to take note of.
Fred Lingenfelder, a well-known name in the local mountain biking fraternity, built the cross-country track when the Spur Schools Mountain Bike League was in desperate need of a new venue. Fred built the track in a month and was asked if he would be able to take on management of Klipheuwel Mountain Bike Park.
Fred bought his first full rigid mountain bike in 1989 and became very involved in organised events after they moved to George in 2001. He has been building mountain bike trails for over a decade, first with Raymond Blom and Patric Mosterd, yet he soon used this experience to start building trails by himself.
Central to both George and Mosselbay, Klipheuwel Mountain Bike Park is ideally situated. With between 12 ha and 15 ha available, the farm is a safe destination and have something to offer for riders of all ages. The farm offers a fairly flat trial, ideal for beginner and intermediate riders while parts of the course become immersed in sea water, adding an interesting element to the course. The pump track is divided into pump track and a dual slalom as well as a separate small track for littlies on balancing bikes.
Klipheuwel has become a popular destination for children’s parties and, while the track remains open to all riders, braai and picnic facilities can be reserved for groups. The Klipheuwel Farm Store, adjacent to the mountain bike park, even has a kiddie’s play area for little brothers and sisters who don’t want to cycle.
Klipheuwel Mountain Bike Park offers several events with skills training, monthly time trials, 1 Hour maDneSS, a fun ride to see how many laps riders can finish in an hour, and full moon night runs.
On the 23rd of December Klipheuwel will host the Klipheuwel Run&Race. The mountain bike race will take place during the morning with options of 8, 12 or 30km while the evening’s trail run offers a 3 or 8km option. With the entire event taking place on one farm, a mere 1km of the 30km route is on tarred road, all the rest of the route is on dirt road, jeep track or single track.
During December Crazy Climb will put up a 6m mobile climbing wall which Klipheuwel aims to replace with a climbing wall and zip line in the new year. Construction on a new shed will start in January, housing both a bike shop and a coffee roastery.
With the Garden Route tasting room for Boplaas Family Vineyards, Klipheuwel Farm Stall and the brand new Salty River Beer House bordering the mountain bike park, it will soon become a destination of choice in the Garden Route.
