EMP FOR ROAD CYCLING AND MOUNTAIN BIKING IN TMNP OFFICIALLY ACCESSIBLE AS OF TODAY!

TMNP, Table Mountain Mountain Bike (TMMTB) Forum, Pedal Power Association and SANBI have over the past year been revising the 2002 Mountain Biking Environmental Management Programme (EMP) through an inclusive stakeholder process whereby the EMP was released for public comment in April 2016.
TMNP and the Forum are pleased to announce that the final revised EMP and a full list of additional mountain biking routes are officially open and available to the public as of today, 01 December 2016. The additional “trail sharing” routes are now open to the public and introduces an exciting new aspect to recreational activities in the Park.

Some guidelines include staying on dedicated routes, no littering and respecting wildlife. As before, the TMNP level 3 Activity Permit will be required to ride all biking trails in the Park and permits are available at the SANParks Wildcard Offices in Tokai or at any Cape Town Tourism info centre.
