BIKE

Cycling routes have also been created in the NWSMA, and are overseen by our members.

Black Oystercatcher Cottages

There are 5 cycling routes starting at the Black Oystercatcher – ranging from a challenging 95km route, to an easier 35km option. These mostly make use of farm and gravel roads in the NWSMA.

The Strandveld team loves the outdoors, including mountain biking (and trail running). So they’ve set up routes across their farm. Chat to Conrad Vlok for more.

Biking in Elim

Take a bike ride through the landscapes surrounding the small town of Elim. These are public roads, although many are not too busy, and therefore ideal for a scenic bike ride. The Elim Tourism Bureau can provide information on biking opportunities here.
