The Cog and Sprocket Mountain Bike Centre

Old Rustenburg Road, Magaliesburg, 1791, Gauteng


Nestled amidst the lush Magaliesburg countryside, The Cog & Sprocket Mountain Bike Club is the ideal destination for avid mountain bikers to test their skills on the open road. Open to hotel GUESTS and day visitors alike, the mountain bike club offers three exciting 5km, 7.5km and 12km single-track routes, along with a host of useful facilities including deli-style dining, showers, bike wash bays and ample parking..

The Route Cyclists can choose from one of three tracks, namely 5km, 7.5km and 12km. All tracks begin and end at The Cog & Sprocket, with the longer tracks featuring additional loops that are clearly demarcated along the route.

The trail starts on the valley floor under a leafy canopy of trees. It then follows a single-track gravel road while gradually rising up a grassy hill. The road soon widens into a jeep track following winding switchbacks all the way to the top, where the trail then gives way to sweeping views of the town of Magaliesburg below.

The track then drops down to reveal breath-taking views of the valley followed by a steep downhill single track with exciting switchbacks and suspension bridges that lead back to the shaded forest where The Cog & Sprocket awaits.
