Hi Wendell

My daughter had a netball match in Alberton today, so I googled MTB trails and found Thaba Trails in the vicinity. I thoroughly enjoyed the first 10 km 's of the blue/black route, and if I hadn't subsequently launched over my handlebars and broken my bike in the process, would have revelled in the challenges that you have to offer for another good few hours. It really was a thoroughly enjoyable 10 km's, and kept me pretty honest. The part which took me by surprise and led to my aerobatics was the drop off on a section of twisty downhill a few hundred metres behind the shop. It was just one of those moments where my concentration wavered for a fraction of a second, and I got it wrong, plain and simple, so no complaints from my side. But I did think that perhaps a warning sign could help to pre-empt this ? (same for the gap jump earlier on which also seemed to creep up on me, but which I manged to negotiate comfortably anyway). Even for people who are familiar with the trails it might serve to jog the memory and potentially pull a wandering mind back to reality. Anyway, I can't wait to be back to give it another go !
