 All day  Muni
(Mountain Unicycling)
  • The riding on Constantia Green Belt is not very demanding and will suit a wider selection of Muni riders. There is a forested canopy to ride under. This area is part of the new Table Mountain National Park Trail whereby you can ride from the city all the way to Silvermine / Tokai MTB Park.
  • If you are in need of a tougher ride where you don’t mind cranking climbs and some serious downhill with sun exposure then we can arrange a splinter group go to Tokai or Jonkershoek on this day or another day.
  • Pack a lunch cause we will be eating somewhere on the mountain.
