They climbed up to the Sky Contour; swerved onto Route 2030; joined the Caracal Contour; went down in the Porcupine Trail and descended towards the dam to enter Hill/Steyn street; got onto Spruit Walk from the Rangers Log Bridge along the parkrun route to the parkrun bridge exiting Berg Street. They are all fine! See?

The stage options included the Thabo e kholo, 55km & 50km stages; and the Thaba e Nyenyane 45km & 35km stages. Both covered challenging, but spectaculour, terrain through nature reserves and private farmland normally not accessible to mountain bikers. The Big Mountain riders started at 06:45 with 10 minutes intervals, and the Small Mountain at 07:30 also with 10 minute intervals.
The CVC was on duty at the waterpoint. Sometimes a little more than water was needed.
Clarens Villagers celebrated Halloween, 31 Oct, with a Fun Run which was organized by the CVC. It was the first run to be had since the covid lockdown. It was a welcome occasion indeed as was the soft drizzle. Both humans and dogs enjoyed themselves thoroughly. Starting point on the corner of Church and Market Streets. Starting time at 08:00
What is more, the Fun Run will be repeated every Saturday until Parkrun is allowed to re-open.
