SPIER MOUNTAIN BIKE TRAIL
The signposted route, created and maintained by the Wine Lands Cycling Club, combines single tracks and farm roads in a beautifully meandering journey across the farm. Appreciate the abundant local flora and fauna while whizzing along the Eerste River. Take the single track through Renosterveld before returning to our vineyard farm roads and making your way back along the river.
KINDLY NOTE THAT DUE TO HEAVY RAIN THE TRAIL IS CLOSED UNTIL 8 JULY 2022.
WINE LANDS CYCLING CLUB PERMIT HOLDERS:

- If you’re connecting from the rest of the Wine Lands Cycling Club trails and have a board/permit, you can access the route by bicycle using the Spier Cellar entrance off Annandale Road. Please note that there is no parking available at this entrance.
