 Maggie's Farm MTB Ride.
Maggie's Farm mtb ride rated as 7 of 10 for hills. Well, if this was a "7" I don't want to meet Mr./Ms. 8, 9 or 10!! Tough ride including bike meets rock. Rock wins. Wrist doesn't. Just a big ol abrasion but enough to get a rouge badge.

This ride goes through a private reserve so we were treated to springbok, zebra, wildebeasts and 3 giraffes. The giraffes were too far away to photograph, plus having been to 3 game preserves in the past year, it's a "ho hum....more giraffes, wildebeasts and zebras." Still it was exciting to have to stop on the trail as a herd of wildebeasts galloped across about 5 yards in front of us.

Great tough the work out on a mountain bike. You gets your money's worth for sure.
