PWC Cycle Park
Built by international mountain bike trail builder, Geoff Vorpagel, the park adheres to stringent standards as practiced by the International Mountain Bike Association (IMBA) and the African Mountain Bike Association (AMARIDER). These standards take into account rider safety and enjoyment and environmental impact. Vorpagel’s previous projects include the building of mountain bike trails at Amelia Earheart, Oleta State and Markham Parks in Florida USA, and, more recently, Logwood Bike Haven at Muldersdrift, north of Johannesburg.
“The PwC Cycle Park is actually also part of a variety of city and provincial environmental groups’ efforts to rehabilitate natural wetland, particularly in an area under such high levels of urban development pressure,” explained Vorpagel. “Currently, there are about 15km of mountain bike trails built with another 15 or to be completed”
