Several Mountain Biking clubs use this area for its lovely trail routes

appy Valley: Hemmed in by the Bloemfontein suburbs of Basewater and Westdene, Happy Valley is a small pocket of nature dominated by a rocky koppie characteristic of the Bloemfontein area. Cross country lap races are consistently held here so expect to ride a technical 5km singletrack circuit which will test your mettle in the skills department.

Seven Dams Conservancy: This natural asset is bordered by the upmarket northern suburbs of Helicon Heights, Pentagon Park and Dan Pienaar. Dare one another to ride over a narrow concrete dam wall across one of the watercourses. Keep your eyes on the trail or it’s a dry freefall on one side or a swim on the other. There are a few singletracks with a choice between either rocks or long grass or both, depending on the season. Riders who wish to extend their playtime can get some airtime along the motocross track which is accessed from here via the nearby Gladstone Road, north of Bayswater.
