Who better to show you the spots to ride in Cape Town than South African National Downhill MTB Champ Theo Erlangsen?!

Cape Town sits in one hell of a beautiful part of the world that makes for some insanely picturesque riding spots, there are classic after-work trails with ocean views, an ultimate trail bike spot in the luscious mountainous Stellenbosch area, as well as the now iconic Hellsend compound with its downhill tracks and jump lines.

G-Spot in particular has us amped to ride after watching the boys shred the dusty pump track style rollers (skip to 08:16 in the video to get straight to this track with some feel-good dnb vibes!).

Thanks to all the SA crew for always keeping the vibes all time!

 Best City in the world. I love it there, just a shame about all the issues. I have always thought about riding when I'm there, but you know, I do worry that some guys will jump me mid ride and take my bike. and everything else...

 Stoke levels are high with that guy.. not sure those plane tickets are justifyable though for a riding trip

 once you get there the rand is really weak so living costs are very low for people spending european currencies... that means you need to go on a long trip to justify the plane tickets, luckily theres plenty riding that is absolutely amazing, contact irideafrica if you want any guidance, they'll show you all the good stuff Wink

 Lekker man! G-spot is legendary. Rode there years ago but seems like they've expanded the trails significantly. Great to see.
