Our Van Gaalen's mountain bike ride was everything we've expected: a laid back 3.5h ride on single and jeep tracks criss-crossing a large area, running through forests, along streams, over mountains... It was indeed breathtaking (and painful too at times!) After the ride we had a wonderful lunch at the restaurant and were joined by Eric, the owner of van Gaalens, who gave us some background on the labour of love that goes into making Van Gaalens the MTB paradise it is. Look out for upcoming events here... we will definitely be going back there! The location is Van Gaalen Cheese Farm on R512, Skeerpoort, GPS coordinates: S 25º 47.271, E 27º 46.327 Entry fee is R40 per rider.
