Regular member rides

Van Stadens MTB Ride & Plant Sale!
Johann Potgieter to run MTB Youth Camp at Crossways this December!

FatTracks members get together on a regular basis to ride through the Baakens Valley and other trails in Port Elizabeth and the surrounds.

There are also a number of ‘informal’ rides which are organised spontaneously through the WhatsApp groups when the weather is just too good not to take a quick ride through the valley! 

Tuesday kids’ rides

To help get more kids get their bikes out into the valley (especially those whose schools don’t offer mountain biking) FatTracks leads the Kids’ Companion Ride.

Kids (accompanied by a guardian) can join us at the FatTracks Trail Centre on William Moffett on Tuesday afternoons at 3pm – weather permitting.

The ride should take around 1.5 hours.

Wednesday club rides

Join the Club Ride at the FatTracks Trail Centre on William Moffett which starts at 5pm with a second collection at 5:30. The route varies according to the skill set of those attending so every club member is welcome!
