Go Suikerbosrand!

With Go Multi editor, Deon Braun, in town for the weekend, I was keen to show him how cool Jo'burg really is. So we headed out to Suikerbosrand on Sunday afternoon to take a spin around the Bokmakkerie day walk trail. Unlike the overnight hiking trail to the East of the Reserve, which is overgrown and up to your eyeballs in grass, the day trails are well worn, regularly used and well maintained. I haven't been on the day trail for about six years, so it was as much a treat for me as it was for Deon.

What do you get when you put two trail-loving journos on a trail under perfect conditions (blue sky, ideal afternoon temperature, rain nourished veld)? Lots of photos!

Deon thoroughly enjoyed the trail and gives it a resounding 9.5/10 for scenery, technical elements and pure enjoyment.



Lookin' out across the Witwatersrand. The rains have been good to the area.

Thanks for the magic run again Lisa. You're a great guide! The singletrack was absolutely top-drawer.

Any trail runner will be doing backflips after running SBR.
