Weekends are made for adventures!

Weekends are made for adventures ๐Ÿ˜! On Saturday, 25 July 2020, I enjoyed a fantastic 100 km gravel ride ๐Ÿšดโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿคฉ! What do you do on Sunday? ๐Ÿ‘‰ Recovery ride ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿšดโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ˜‹! The Moo Trails ๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿ„๐Ÿ‚, as I like to call it, winked at me ๐Ÿ˜‰, and I was a goner ๐Ÿšดโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ’จ๐Ÿคฉ! Why the Moo Trails?

๐Ÿ‘‰ “Hazeldean Valley Farm was once the home of SA’s biggest Ayrshire herd ๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ„. The herd that founded the Woolworths Ayrshire brand of delicious dairy products ๐Ÿง€๐Ÿฅ›, this in 1988. There are still herds of pretty cows ๐Ÿฎ on the farm ๐Ÿคฉ! Hazeldean Valley is situated on the banks of the Pienaars River, just East of Pretoria with bushveld scenery and a lovely farmyard atmosphere. The venue is home to the; Cowhouse Market, Hazeldean Valley Trails, Hazeldean Valley Kiddies Bike Park, Hazeldean Brewing Co. and Hazeldean Trees, which is an Indigenous Tree Nursery.”

My Post-Gran-Fondo Recovery Ride took me onto the Black Trail ๐Ÿšดโ€โ™€๏ธ, River Section, which had been revamped with some route adjustments recently, and it was an absolutely fabulous experience ๐Ÿ‘Œ! The trails are well marked and maintained! The route expertly created! There are lovely flowing sections, some twists and turns, little bridges, and here and there a few challenges, activating those quad muscles, helping you up short, steep climbs. The stunning winter landscape, filled with streams, dams, tree-lined Jeep track and fantastic single track is any mountain biker, trail runner and walker’s dream ๐ŸŒพ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ๐Ÿ“ธ๐Ÿ˜!

After 26 km of trail riding, some lovely fresh air, stopping for pretty pics ๐Ÿ“ธ, I popped back to the clubhouse, and enjoyed lovely hot cinnamon-sugar pancakes ๐Ÿ˜‹! Brilliant 5 Star โญ๏ธ experience ๐Ÿ˜!

If you want to take your family or friends for some trail riding ๐Ÿšดโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿšดโ€โ™€๏ธ, running ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ, walking the dog ๐Ÿšถโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ• (On Leash) or just a family walk, Hazeldean Valley Farm is the perfect place for this! It is also a photographer’s dream ๐Ÿ“ธ, with an abundance of awesome photo opportunities. They strictly adhere to the current COVID19 protocols, and requires patrons to comply ๐Ÿ˜ท! Next time you want to get out for some fresh air, give Hazeldean Valley Farm a try ๐Ÿ‘‰ 5โญ๏ธ๐Ÿ‘Œ!
