Brain Pickering, together with Western Cape Nature
Conservation, has developed a new way for all
to experience this wonder of the world. (Hiking on wheels
) with specially adapted (ATVs) Quad

noise exhaust systems and low impact tyres These sturdy
Bike machines have been selected to ride trails
with comfort and safety, it was decided that; for first
time riders to be user friendly with a semi automatic
transmission and suspension that would be safe on longer
Bike trails took a long time to plan and map
out to cause minimum impact on the environment, while
providing the ultimate concept of reaching areas of pristine
scenery, rare plants, and Historical sites with ease for
most family riders while providing a memorable adventure
at the same time. With limited small groups, a personalised
approach is taken with high quality care and attention
to detail. As a result many people return for additional
Bike trails with built in skills levels according
to experience. Included are short walks and interesting
