With the Wannabees Trails being opened for those that live within a 5km radius of their homes we have picked up the following issues that need to be addressed urgently:
- Riding without boards: The trails are only open to cyclists with boards. No board, no ride! Do not take friends/family onto the trail without boards. Anyone without a board will be treated as trespassing and run the risk of being arrested as a result (Farm security will hand you over to SAPS). The farms have seen an influx of “less desirables” and rogue riders are compelling this issue.
- Riding wherever you want: The trails are well marked – stick to the marked route. We have received complaints from landowners of riders riding where they want – this is unacceptable and will not be tolerated.
- Riding in groups: Please maintain social distancing in line with the government guidelines. Maximum 2 people together.
- Riding without a mask: Please ensure you are riding with a mask/buff or something to cover your nose and mouth in line with government regulations.
- 6h00-9h00 curfew: As per the level 4 rules, you have to be out of the trail network by 9h00. Riders riding outside of these hours will also be viewed as trespassing.
Note: The club kindly received permission from all landowners for its club members to ride on the trail network. This decision can be easily reversed. Please respect the rules that are in place so we don’t have to lose this privilege. Furthermore, don’t put yourself at risk in terms of breaking the rules – they are in place for a reason!
