The Bike Park sits on the historic wine estate, Constantia Uitsig.
Open 7 days a week, from 8am until 6pm, the Bike Park at Constantia Uitsig offers cyclists of all ages and skill levels laps and laps of fun.
Featuring a variety of pump tracks currently totaling 2.8 kms, there are beginner jump lines all the way to expert drop-offs, rock gardens, a wooden berm, rollers and a suspension sky bridge (that tracks the canopy of the trees) ending in a corkscrew exit.
In addition to the new Bike Barn – which offers spectators a cozy hideout and cyclists, a pitstop with bike repair facilities on site – there will also be a dual slalom race track soon.
Designed by Downhill World Champion, Chris Nixon, the tracks are ideal for honing one’s bike handling skills. BMX’s, mountain bikes and cyclocross are all welcome.
