ROAD RIDES FROM HAZYVIEW
Generally it is beatifull area to ride. Much more hills than J’burg – have the right granny on your bike.

There are 3 roads leading to Hazyview (HV), which you can use to ride away from or return to HV. 1 Graskop, 2Sabie, 3 White river.
Don’t go North towards Bushbuckridge or east towards Krugerpark. A little risky security wise.
Option 1  - ride Graskop – Sabie and back to HV – sounds like a tough ride probably about 90km. You can also do the reverse.
Option 2 – Ride Sabie - White river and back -  again probably about 90km. You can also do the reverse.
Option 3 – Maybe you can start at Casterbridge WR one day and do Sabie – Nelspruit – WR – or reverse.
Option 4 start at Casterbridge WR do Sabie and towards Nelspruit turn left in the Brondal road and take the short cut to WR
Options 5 – Start at Mankele, close to Sudwala caves and ride to Sabie and back. Or in reverse.
Rather stay away from the N4 – there are roadworks presently. (2012)
There are many place to breakfast in every town and sometimes even between towns. Go and chat to Jaco at Induna adventures – he knows the area verywell and will gladly help you with any info.
