Description
Hi guys,

For those who don’t know about this spot.............

This is in “my neck of the woods”........ behind Parklands/Sunningdale/Table View area.

There are lots of lil paths you can take and it is HUGE! 
A bit sandy with lots of hoops but it is still fun!
We sometimes also stop by this nice quarry (see in pics).

Just please never go riding there by yourself as we have heard some stories before of people being attacked!

If you would like to join me (and others) the next time we go riding in the bush please leave me a comment below with your number and I will contact you! We are always looking for people to join us!

If you guys know of any other FREE or open spots where we can ride please also add it onto this website. Anyone can make a free posting just like this one!

Directions
Head North on the R27/Otto Du Plessi Drive..... past Bayside Mall.....
Turn right into Sandown Road....
Go all the way down and you will see Builders Warehouse on your left...
If you want you can park your car/bakkie in the parking-lot there and ride from there.

Etienne

Hi Etienne (or whoever posted the above post:-) I've ridden this Parklands area, very fun albeit the sand ... but I like to look at is as 'Dakar Training', if I may:-p I'm keen to join you guys, however am in the process of still getting hold of a means of getting my bike there as don't have a tow hitch on my car. Feel free to drop me a mail when you guys go though, will let you know if I can make it. Thanks!

There is awesome riding out there guys. I love it. Be careful guys are clamping down now aswell as 4x4 cruising around. But GREAT FUN..Not for the faint hearted.

Great place to ride for beginners and advanced but it is sadly slowly but surely being wiped out by development. Oh, by the way, you also need to carry a piece with you when you ride...and no less than 4 riders at a time!!!

There's loads of great riding and if you follow the dirt road to just after the railway crossing (close to the N7) and then jump into the bush on the left you eventually get to an old quarry which is just as much fun.

Here's a Google Earth map of some of the tracks where we may ride. Please look out for approaching traffic on the narrow tracks. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/32814638/Quarry.kml Cape Nature and the SAPS do not want you to ride anywhere to the west of the railway line. The area behind the Vissershok dump site (where the quarries used to be) seems to be freely available. The usual security and safety warnings apply. Check out the quarry thread on Wilddogs for more DS (i.e. slower) rides. www.wilddog.za.net/forum/index.php?topic=109353

A lot of people ride out there every weekend. For instance check out: http://www.wilddog.za.net/forum/index.php?topic=109353 The guys welcome all comers, but if you're a fast enduro rider the pace might be a bit pedestrian for you.
