Get your next endorphin rush here Print E-mail

NEED a serious way to unwind from the stresses of working and living in the big city of Joburg? No sweat – tune into our guide on how to get the juices flowing, and get your next endorphin rush here. Read on.

 


 

Go rock climbing
Mountaineering What about some mountaineering to release the stresses of watching your team not do as well as you had hoped? Joburg's climbers have three favourite spots: Northcliff, Struben's Valley in Roodepoort and the western section of Melville Koppies. All have great rockfaces to climb, with bolts in place, and all are used every weekend. Parking for Melville Koppies is on the corner of Judith and Beyers Naude roads in Melville, with entrance through the gate nearby. Northcliff is fenced and entrance is in the car park below the water tower in Lucky Avenue. Struben's Valley is accessible from the vacant lot in Montrose Avenue - follow the path up to the crag on the left.

 


 

Get mountain biking
mountainbiking Mountain biking is a great way to get the endorphins flowing after a heavy session of football watching. There are two major clubs in Joburg - Rock Hoppers and the Johannesburg Mountain Bike Club. Rock Hoppers members meet once a month at different off-road tracks on the outskirts of the city, usually to race laps on a 7-8km course. Phone Richard on 083 400 0620 for details or get more details from the www.rmbc.co.za or www.jmbc.org.za websites. The Johannesburg Mountain Bike Club has weekly rides of up to 45km at places like Lanseria, Irene or Midrand. Phone Keith on 083 775 5871 for more information but you can get all the details from the website. You'll need to hire a bike - the best place is Linden Cycles, give them a call on 011 782 7313.
