Combination Route

A morning of beauty awaits us yet again

After a FAMM epic last week where inspiration was pouring in from all angles, we head back to a previous FAMM mountain route this week - one that requires an uphill start to get the pulse beating from the word go! Don't let this deter you, its a cheeky but steady climb but the views, vibe and inspiration that awaits you upon summit, makes the climb beyond worth it! There is a great balance of off road and tar time on this route, so put those trail shoes by the door so come Friday morning they can leap onto your feet and lead you back onto our majestic mountains!

What date: Friday, 9th February 2007

What Route:
Ocean View Drive - Signal Hill - Base of Lions Head. We will start on Ocean View Drive and take a slow start up the side of Signal Hill on the middle traverse to the base Signal Hill/Lion's Head Saddle where we will drop down right along the base and depending on time constraints we'll either run around the base or drop back onto Ocean View Drive and jog it in along the rd back to the cars.

What time:
5:45am - light is still just creeping through, so don't let the darkness keep you from earning!

Where do I park:
Come along High Level Rd from town - Strand leads into High level Rd - drive quite far along through 2 sets of robots and then at the third set which is Glen Garriff Rd, take a left up the hill and then right into Ocean View Drive. Your second left is Upper Rhine which is a steep dead end rd - put your car into park and start warming up.

Dogs are welcome along this route, leashes recommended as some running will be done on the roads.

Post Hike Vibe: Vida Somerset Rd is calling for all athletes! It can't touch sides on a swim and hot tea on the Camps Bay beach, but they have been known to make the best latte in town!

See you out there ATHLETES!!
