Join Kevin Wood, long time Darling resident and avid mountain bike rider for a guided ride through lesser-known trails in the rolling hills of Darling on a combination of sheep and jeep tracks. The day starts at Living Colour with a delicious breakfast of your choice and an opportunity to meet your fellow riders.

The ride starts on the single tracks of Living Colour Trails and climbs up Klipberg with your first views of the day, the beautiful Groot Winterhoek mountains in the distance. The flora and fauna in this area is spectacular and offers seasonal beauty.

A long downhill ride takes you on a flat stretch to the village of Darling and up into the hills covered in Rhenosterveld and vineyards. Climbing up jeep tracks takes you to a vista with stunning views of Table Mountain. This is the halfway point where you can enjoy an ice cold beer, enjoying the sights and sounds of the ocean with Skaap Eiland in the distance.

The second half of the ride takes you back into the hills with the longest climb of the day and the vineyards of the wines which you can look forward to tasting. Riding through the vines offers you 360-degree views of the ocean and the distant mountains. You are left with a long decent into the village with a 5km tar stretch back to Living Colour for a shower and freshen up. You will return to Ormonde for your wine tasting and cheese platters.
