FatTracks was the first Mountain Bicycle Club in South Africa. Established in 1989, the Club is a leader in the growth of Mountain Biking in South Africa and has seen substantial growth in the last three years. As a club we recognize the importance of catering for all mountain biking needs, irrespective of levels of discipline, fitness or skill.


Amongst other things, FatTracks Mountain Bike Club involves itself in:

  • Racing : We organize races catering for both novice and experienced riders.
  • Outrides : We have regular outrides. Outrides are a
    social type of event which is really just about getting out and riding
    mountain bikes whilst encouraging new entrants to the sport.
  • Chaperoned Valley rides: Our trail builders offer
    an escorted ride during the day for those who are fortunate enough to
    ride their bikes during normal work hours.
  • Skills rides: We do occasional rides where riders can learn to tackle obstacles and challenges that they might usually not try.
  • Trail maintenance: Key to our growth is the
    maintenance and development of the Baakens Valley trail network. We know our members like riding epic trails and as such will continue to
    provide awesome pedaling opportunities.
