Day 6 – Clifton Prep to Glencairn Farm
Day 6 – if there is a day that tests mountain biking skill this is it. Day 6 has sections of incredible trail riding including Harrison’s pass with 32 switch backs and the sensational Rock ‘n Roll trail. However to get there you have to climb our steepest climb of the whole tour.
Gumtree Climb is a wall that hits you hard – many walk many ride. Give it a go. After Gumtree you will be in Ivanhoe farm and Wiliam Bryant’s at around 1900m above sea level. It is as remote as you will get on joberg2c.
After flying through Harrison’s pass and Rock ‘n Roll, it is a long haul to get to the top of Sappi forest to get to another awesome trail called Sappiness. This day might just be a favourite among favourites for some and a bit of a mountain biking test for others. Either way there will be no indifference. The beers will taste especially good at Glencairn. If the weather is good the views of the Drakensberg will be spectacular.Read more

Underberg is an administrative town in a dairy and cattle farming community in the Mzimkulu River valley of KwaZulu-Natal. It is situated at the foot of the 1904m Hlogoma Peak (place of echoes) in the foothills of the Southern Drakensberg, KwaZulu-Natal. Underberg was established in 1917 when the railway from Pietermaritzburg reached the area. It is an important commercial centre for the region’s farming industry providing many of the support services.
Underberg Primary School relies on joberg2c for much needed funds so they can employ a few extra teachers. They will be welcoming you and serving you at Glencairn Farm. These wonderful moms and dads are familiar with mountain biking thanks to sani2c and joberg2c which contribute massively to the area.
Glencairn is fast becoming a sought after wedding venue. If you are planning to get married again or for the first time consider this haven on the foothills of Sani Pass.
