“Riding back in my old Varsity town is always awesome for me. Its where I first got into riding, and bunked countless classes so I could escape into the mountains!"- Devlin Fogg
With Devlin having been at Stellenbosch Uni and having learnt to ride mountain bikes in the surrounding hills, going back to Stellies was a trip down memory lane. Over the years, the trails around this wine town have matured to become some of the best, most fun and enjoyable trails in SA. We kicked off at Eden Forest on a trail called G-Spot, for good reason. Next up was the iconic Jonkershoek where we got to meet some of the guys making things happen in the forests.
Stellenbosch has without doubt become the new epicenter of mountain biking in the country, and with all the other amazing attractions in the area, its probably the go-to place for your next MTB holiday.
