The JMBC was founded in 1989 and is one of the largest social clubs of its kind in Africa. JMBC is known for its passion for biking in the dirt and for enjoying the best Mother Nature has to offer during these riding journeys. The club has three categories of rides for their members to participate in: Domesticated, which is aimed at families; Untamed, which are mid-distance rides challenging those who are fairly proficient on their bikes, and Feral, which are preferred by cyclists in training for competitive races.
The JMBC organises many social rides on the weekends and during the holidays and is run by a committed band of mountain biking enthusiasts who promise to make any mountain biking excursion with the club a fun-filled experience for all.Where: Social rides in Lanseria, Irene or Midrand.
