Wannabees Trails on Google Maps
The Wannabees trails are constantly undergoing updates and alterations. The club’s trail map will evolve as changes are implemented. We have also added an additional new layer to the map, showing the entire annual Club Monster Ride route. This layer is switched off by default, but can easily be toggled on (as are all the other layers on the map) to see, or hide details. Google maps features the export of trails and other details as KML/KMZ files (when in full-screen view). The exported files can then easily be imported into your favourite navigation device, either directly, or after conversion to a GPX format. The map’s menu options become visible by expanding the margin (click the expand button in top left-hand corner of the map window).
The club has also opened a short trail running section at Somerbosch. This route is marked for trail running only. No cycling on running trails and no running is allowed on the cycling trails.

Schematic metro-map style diagram of the Wannabees Trails, west of the R44
The schematic map below provides an overview of the layout of the club’s trails to the west of the R44. (The provincial route between Somerset West and Stellenbosch). The red route consists off all the trails linking the club’s two main trail heads, located at Somerbosch Winery and the Lord Charles Hotel. The Wannabees red route is not a single trail, but has a number of interesting tributaries taking riders to either of the two trail heads. Other trail colours (i.e. yellow, purple etc) denotes loops off and back to the main red route.
Trail Marking Information
The Wannabees Cycling Club’s trails are marked by means of directional arrows and other information affixed to short sections of white PVC pipes, mounted on posts. You will find directional arrows, night-ride directional arrows (where appropriate), IMBA trail difficulty grading, route colour-marker stickers and where appropriate place names, on each board.
PLEASE DO NOT CYCLE OFF THE MARKED ROUTES AND
IN CONTRAVENTION TO THE DIRECTION INDICATED BY THE TRAIL ARROWS.
