Video: Where We Ride - The Spruit

A short video showing the fun side of the Braamfontein Spruit and why we ride it. Probably the most debated public area in South Africa. Open to the public and used by families, runners, dogs and cyclists it can get quite busy at times with tensions running high. We are all very lucky to have such an awesome trail/park in the middle of JHB. Great singletrack through the heart of (Jozi) Johannesburg.


Thanks to my friends for helping film and make the video, to the Spruit Fairies for maintaining the trails & to Majozi for the use of his song.

Good work fellas.  :thumbup:

The Spruit remains a cool spot to ride even with all the 'stutter bumps'.

So that's how you supposed use those mounds of sand!

Dexter-morgan, Jan 05 2016 10:53

Super cool, wish I had the guts to do those jumps as well as you.

T-Bob, Jan 05 2016 02:58

Just goes to that you can make a ton of fun where ever you put your wheels. Just how you approach it.

Well done Chris and co.
You have now caused me a problem, my 6yr old who loves all the parts of the spruit, jumps and burms included now wants to know how to do it like in the video!

EmptyB, Jan 05 2016 07:27

Never seen the Spruit so quiet, even for new years day!
