Win 2020 permits for the Bottelary Hills MTB Route (closed)

Posted on 14 December 2019

The 65km Bottelary Hills Mountain Bike Trails that run through the Bottelary Hills Renosterveld Conservancy (BHC) and across working wine farms, offer spectacular views and multiple route options that caters to various skill and fitness levels.

Get your 2020 BHC MTB permit online and enjoy the fabulous trails, while making a contribution to conservation – R680 for main members, R580 for spouses and pensioners and R480 for students and under 18s. Day permits (R60) are available from the Devonvale Golf & Wine Estate, Asara Wine Estate, Jordan Wine Estate, Zevenwacht Country Lodge, Hazendal Bike Park and Soneike Engen in Kuilsriver.

The BHC is a registered non-profit organisation (NPO) that forms part of the Cape Winelands Biosphere Reserve. Funds generated through permit sales are used to care for, expand and sustain the remaining 1500-hectare Renosterveld in the area that covers approximately 10 000 hectares. Less than 4% of the original Renosterveld in the Western Cape remains and only grows in very rich fertile soils, which is often replaced with commercial crops.

Game such as Caracal, Grysbok, Grey duiker, Porcupine, Bat-eared foxes, Cape foxes and otters still roams naturally in the Hills. There are also endangered reptile species such as the Diamondback tortoise only found in Renosterveld areas, while more than 109 bird species have been identified and listed on the BHC website.

Convenient park and ride access points to the trails include: Devonvale Golf Estate and Hazendal (Bottelary Road / M23); Brenaissance Wine & Studd Farm (Devon Valley Road); Asara Wine Estate (Polkadraai Road / R310), Jordan and Overgaauw Wine Estates (Stellenbosch Kloof Road) and Zevenwacht Wine Estate (Langverwacht Road).

The trails are situated on working wine farms and riders need to be on the lookout for tractors and vehicles at all times as they have right of way. Riding is only allowed from sunrise to sunset. Riding alone is not advisable (in case of an incapacitating accident). Carrying a mobile phone is recommended.
