Sun Jun 2, 07:00 - Sun Jun 2, 11:00



Join us for an experience of being Beyond The Outdoors with Street Friends.

The collaboration between Beyond The Outdoors and Street Friends aims to provide participants with a unique and immersive outdoor experience that combines cycling and hiking. Beyond The Outdoors specialises in organising outdoor activities such as hiking and camping, while Street Friends specialises in coordinating cultural events and bike ride events. By joining forces, we can offer participants a diverse and comprehensive day trip that caters to both cycling and hiking enthusiasts. 

Plan for the day:

  • Cycling Departure: Participants will gather at Cheeky's in Braamfontein at 7:00 AM for the start of the cycling portion of the day trip. Street Friends will lead the cycling group to Melville Koppies, ensuring a safe and enjoyable ride for all participants. 
  • Arrival and Preparation: The cycling group will arrive at Melville Koppies around 7:45 AM. Beyond The Outdoors will organise the hiking portion of the day and ensure that participants are prepared with water provided by our sponsor, Manzi, and fruits for refreshments.
  • Hiking: The hike will commence at 8:00 AM, with participants having the option to choose between a 3KM or 5KM hike depending on their preference and the conditions of the day. Beyond The Outdoors will lead the hike, providing guidance and ensuring the safety of all participants.
  • Social Media Content: Throughout the day, Beyond The Outdoors will capture engaging content for social media promotion. This content will showcase the highlights of the day trip, including scenic views, participant interactions, and behind-the-scenes moments. 
  • Brunch: After the outdoor activities, participants will gather for brunch at a restaurant organised by Street Friends (The Station). This will provide an opportunity for participants to refuel, relax, and socialise after a day of cycling and hiking.
  • Bike Storage: Participants' bikes will be securely stored in a designated room at Melville Koppies during the hiking portion of the day. Beyond The Outdoors will ensure that participants' bikes are safely stored and accessible upon their return.
