Come and enjoy an energy-packed, family-friendly weekend of Mountain-Biking, with the option of some relaxing Yoga and meditation too, for you, your partner and children. There is simple, comfortable accommodation at the Centre, and we can keep warm around the fire at night.


Mike Draper will arrange routes of different levels to suit all cyclists, including a ride to Die Oog. The Eye is a 16m deep pool, the source of the Marico river, which stays the same temperature all year round. We will cycle there, and enjoy a refreshing swim before returning back to the Centre on the gravel road, or via the quarry.

Yoga and Mindfulness

Lucy will offer yoga, suitable for all participants. Her style focuses on bringing mindful awareness into physical practice, so that we can be fully aware of our bodies. This can be of great benefit to active sports participants, as well as those wanting to find ways to relax.

Water Wonderland Tour

A ride to the enchanted Marico Eye, pristine source of the Groot Marico river. This ride is all on district gravel roads and is suitable for families and those new to off-road riding. Warm up on a long, steady pull up from the valley, out into big sky country, then either roll down directly to the cooling delight of the crystal-clear Eye, or continue along the ridge, past the old slate quarry, followed by an exhilarating drop. Stop and enjoy the view if the shaking gets too much. Now you will have some work to do, to return to the Source. Keep in mind the refreshing dip to come, as you start to climb. Finally, back at the Eye, its time for that reward. Put on swimming goggles and paddle amongst the lilies while swallows and dragonflies skim the surface nearby. Dry off in the sun and then flop down under the willows for a sumptuous picnic. Time even for a nap perhaps, before its back on the bike. A small climb sets you up for a wonderful freewheel back to the start.
