The route is a mixture of a bit of the main Georges Valley Road then along the bailiff’s jeep track to the Power Boat Club past the Yacht Club, over the Ebenezer Dam Wall, along the “G” road, turning off just before the R71 and on to Blueberry Heights farm , joining the bailiff’s track again and remaining on a jeep track until you are about 1.5 km from Haenertsburg where you have to travel on the R71 for this short distance back to the Village Hall. The Route is about 32km long with an elevation gain of about 460m. It is a comfortable 2hr ride, suitable for casual bikers, but a great ride for anyone. The Route is not signposted
