Train Joburg Outdoors.

Join us at selected outdoor training venues

Our series of outdoor training rides across Joburg will help you prepare for the big day!

Your outdoor training journey begins on Tuesday, 17 August, in the iconic Cradle of Mankind… just outside of the city, where you’ll start and end your ride at the Bidon Bistro.

From 25 August, and every Wednesday afternoon thereafter, 947 Ride Joburg MTB riders will be able to explore the incredible 25 and 50 km trails of Steyn City — an experience usually reserved for estate residents.

And in honour of Women’s Month, we will also be hosting two women’s rides in the Cradle on 15 and 29 August where riders will be supported by Specialized.

Women's ride in the Cradle

12 Sep 2021

Ladies, rally your girlfriends and join us for a free and safe group ride through the Cradle with experienced lead riders from Specialized and mechanical support from the Specialized technical team. Start your ride at Bidon Bistro right after you’ve had a steaming mug of coffee or a bracing cup of tea on us.

We offer four groups to accommodate every fitness and experience level. No reason to feel intimidated; there will be a group for you. 

Group A: 25 – 27 km/h (Approx 51 km with a 500 m climbing)
Group B: 23 – 25 km/h (Approx 51 km with a 500 m climbing)
Group C: 20 – 23 km/h (Approx 34 km with a 410 m climbing)
