Rhino/Feedback Park
« on: January 02, 2019, 11:42:33 am »
I've never been to any of these two parks. What do they offer? We are looking to go somewhere this week to practise some (lack of) skills and mess around.

Ideally obstacles would be great and if there is a track/out ride available even better.

Any experience at these venues?

Never been to feedback but I've been to rhino plenty. They have an easy outride, roughly 20kms, another loop that is a little more challenging about the same kind of distance, a beach section with thick sand, a sandy mx track and some small ruts/climbs. Most of it is very easy on a dirt bike but almost all of it is a workout on a big bike. What bike do you want to do it on? I am still nursing an injury otherwise I'd go show you around

Hi Dwerg, thanks! Much appreciated, would love to be shown around sometime if you don't mind messing about with guys way under your skill level (I saw your video blasting down that railway).

How is your foot healing up? That was a moerova injury!

We are going on 1200 GSA's, will be a challenge but we're up for it.

I haven't been to Rhino Park for some years so it may have changed, but we used to do a lot of quad riding there.  There is a bit of everything the off-road rider would ask for.  Well worth at least one visit.

Foot is getting there slowly but surely thanks. It will be months before I can attempt riding off road though.

We've had plenty of guys there on big bikes. The southern loop is doable by pretty much any skill level on any bike. The rest is a little more challenging but still very doable. It can get quite hectic after lots of rain so I'd avoid it this coming weekend for instance. Rhino is where myself and a lot of other dogs practised skills and confidence on the big bikes. Riding fast is part mental retardation, but mostly just practice  :ricky:

Maybe @MonkeyNot can show you guys around some time. I'd probably join too and do some boerie rolls on the braai while you guys are riding   :thumleft:

Ok I will let you know, although rhino park has a lot of black cotton clay soils so it can be very messy with all the rain. I would try avoid the black soil areas if possible.

Cool, we are going to push our luck and try to fit both in the day. Feedback park first to check it out and mess around, see how it goes and then head to rhino if time allows. Unless feedback is too lekker, then we'll stay and give rhino a go another day.

Also check out Wolwekloof Enduro Trails. Very well run with lots of options depending on skill.

People say nothing is impossible, but I do nothing every day. And doing nothing often leads to the very best kind of something.

If  you do Rhino park as a newbie, take a warning - The rides there are open to all skill levels, so you often have guys that know what they are doing blasting past guys who are trying to learn how to shift gear. I have seen some people there getting upset with each other.
Most of the rides on the southern outride are tweespoor though, if you keep left you should be fine.

It's so isolated that mentioning it is just going to put people off unnecessarily. The faster guys who do moan are should know better anyway and be more accommodating so don't worry too much if it does happen.

While the thread is here, I am probably going to go through to Rhino this weekend or next. Need to start building my strength and riding fitness again.
