Ashomba – The Shongweni MTB Association

The idea around aSHOMBA, in partnership with the Durban Shongweni Club, was created to provide a lively base for mountain bikers and their families to get together on a regular basis and enjoy their sport in a safe, beautiful environment. Our primary aim is to create an area of sustainable land use and trails for mountain bikers in the Shongweni area by working closely with Tongaat Hulett, EMBA and all landowners.

Together with our affiliated clubs we have also built a 5km track within our boundries enabling riders to do timed loops and giving the less experienced an opportunity to get out and have some fun – including the kids

The benefits of joining aSHOMBA are as follows

Safe free vehicle parking – we have 24 hour security at the club, the guardhut is situated in the cycling car-park

Guided out rides every week – EMBA provide 3 guided rides per week on a Thursday morning, Friday afternoon & a Saturday morning.

Public liability insurance cover

Entry and access to the club facilities – incl. hot showers, restaurant, pub & kiddies area.
