WELCOME

Bicycles, Repairs and Coffee

Welcome to The Trailhead where we aim to form part of a community-based Trail Centre which promotes the upkeep and mainteneance of the Braamfontein Spruit and surrounding Parks in the Blairgowrie area.

TheTeam

We intend to do this with the help of pro-active residents who take to the trails whether by bicycle, takkie, dog-on-leash or crazy partner in tow. We are first and foremost a bicycle service centre but plan on expanding to offer a venue whereby residents can meet for community projects and activities or simply meet up with some mates to enjoy the activities the Spruit has to offer.

Join us for our monthly shop night ride! We leave the shop at 18:30 in different groups catering for different speeds of riders for a 20km night ride on the spruit. Refreshments will be available from our coffee shop afterwards! Charge up those lights and join us for some fun in the dark. ... See MoreSee Less

ALL ABOUT THE TRAILHEAD

The Trailhead started as a vision by a group local residents who are enamoured with the bicycle and the ways it affects our lives. A passion which we would like people to experience, to get everyone outdoors and enjoying our local parks. We also believe that our suburb will benefit with a meeting  point (The Trailhead) where residents could meet and enjoy the same healthy lifestyle whether out running, walking dogs, cycling or playing in the parks.

We hope by providing this facility and service, we can achieve an understanding between the different users of the Spruit through educational means and constructive community buy-in for local projects in our suburb and surrounds.

BIKE SHOP

We are a workshop focused store which caters to all your bike service and customizing requirements. Whether your bike is squealing lube murder or you want a nice set of custom hoops to match your bike, we have it dialed!

This doesn’t mean we can’t assist with your bike spares and accessories either. We have decided to go about our business in a rather unique way. We plan to offer selected brands and offer a wide variety within these brands to show that we are committed and support these products. We offer a range of services to get you back on the trail!
