Why We Started Country Bike Tours & Trails

MTB farm trails

We love experiencing all that our countryside offers, and we would like to share it with you.

On an MTB tour, you can go at a leisurely pace and see the natural world from a different perspective. It allows you to feel the peace of being away from the pressures of the city, and you can interact with your surroundings in an unhurried way. Many different types of people can enjoy a bike tour together.

The Paardenberg Trails are for a shorter biking experience where you can come out for the day and unwind as you take on various trails. For those who prefer being closer to the ground, the Paardenberg Trails are also wonderful for trail running and hiking.
