Out to Brackenhurst for a fairly flat ride with the Johannesburg Mountain Bike Club (JMBC). A lot of singletrack in the middle of nowhere with a lot of "eh" scenery, but the good part was riding for 23+ miles and feeling great. Did another 2 miles to get a Pansy Quarter for the Quarters thread.

The route was outside the Rietvlei Farm where there are numerous mountain bike trails. Will be heading back next week during the week day to try the 18 km route. A local mtb bike magazine recently had an article about the farm and the trails, givin them a thumbs up. The "Con" at the end of the article read like this; "The only bad part was the watery cappuccino at the cafe!!." I'll have to check it out being a cap fan.
