Free to ride Bike Parks
Originally, Parel Vallei High school was in need of a venue host their chapter of the very popular Schools MTB league competition. A proposal was floated to temporarily use Southey Vines Park in central Somerset west as a venue. A route was mapped out, marked with lime and levelled so that the kids had a track to race on. The venue and new track proved to be a great success. The Spur League competition has been held here since 2013.
Please note that the wearing bicycle helmets are required when riding in the park.
There are no public toilets available at the park, please plan accordingly.
The Southey Vines bike park became a new safe venue to ride your Mountain bike and hone your riding skills in central Somerset West. Over the years the Wannabees Cycling Club remained involved with the upgrade and evolution of the bike park . The bike park is used daily by old and young who want to improve their fitness, have fun and improve their off-road cycling skills. This facility is established on municipal ground and is open to all, at no charge.
