Fine! Very happy to pay R300 to ride all year on some of the most beautiful routes anywhere!! I suggest cyclists who have paid their annual permit fee should have something to put on their bikes to show this. I hope that funds permitting the Wolvekloof trail gouged out by the rockfalls and some of the rougher parts of the Assegaibos trail can be rehabilitated. Not that it matters to me but I think R50 to just walk to the bridge and back (which is what most visitors do) is a bit much. People may be more honest and income higher if it was R25. There could also be an annual rate for a couple or family.
