Connecting the Dots
We live in a town full of opportunity. We have the mountains, we have the trails, we have the restaurants and accommodation, we have the passionate people. The only thing left to do is connecting the dots.
That's South Sky.
We want to share the experience of mountain biking in Stellenbosch with the rest of the world, while also making it a better place.
Meet Our Team
A merry band of misfits.
What happens when a dentist, an entrepreneur, a Swiss and a surfer start a business?
Corrie is a dentist by day, but don't be surprised if he walks into the practice with some dirt on his shoes, fresh from the trails he just visited. As an accomplished trailbuilder, he is also responsible for a lot of the trails you will be riding on your trip!

Everyone needs a Swiss army knife in their arsenal. At South Sky it's no different. Beat visited Stellenbosch a few years ago and instantly fell in love!
