On 12th February 2019 Trail’s End launched their new Flow Trail generously hosted by Specialized. This is a fabulous new addition to the many exciting activities already on offer to the cycling and adventure enthusiast in the beautiful Elgin Grabouw Valley.
The Theewaterskloof Municipality see tourism as one of the big creators of employment in this valley and have helped promote new ventures such as this one. Trail’s End also sees sport, and particularly cycling, as a great unifier. Together with local NGO Grabouw Beautiful and the Bikes-4-All initiative 240 bicycles have been delivered to deserving youngsters in this valley already.
Two years ago Trail’s End introduced Bike4All to Grabouw Beautiful and an incredible partnership was formed. For those unable to afford bicycles projects are undertaken in order to ‘earn’ the bikes.
Trail’s End would love to see future mountain bike champions being born out of the Bike-4-All project in this town. To this end they have made the flow trail available for skills training.
If you Ride it, You must Drink it! Many of the local wine, cider and even a brandy producer were present to show off their brands. Trail’s End believe in supporting local – and why not: the most amazing brands come from the Elgin Grabouw region.
The flow Trail has been named the Declan O’Malley Flow Trail in loving memory of Declan who had a long friendship with Trail’s End and the owners, spanning more than 20 years.
He was responsible for the beautifully constructed catch nets along the flow trail bridges – completed days before his untimely passing.
Come and ride the Flow Trail and have fun learning new skills over wooden bridges, jumps and around ponds on beautifully manicured berms. You can even challenge the leader board for the fastest lap!
