Episode 5 of the Signal Bikes 𝗦𝗵𝗼𝘄 𝗨𝘀 𝗬𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗟𝗼𝗰𝗮𝗹 video series joins teenager Lizzy Brink through the twists, turns, roots and puddles of Heroes Trail - her Local within the Concordia Contour Trail network
Living just a stone's throw away from Knysna's Concordia Contour Trail network, Lizzy rides her S610 like a boss!
In Episode 5, Oli joins Lizzy on her favourite local, Heroes Trail, which gets its name from the colourful stones that are dotted alongside the trail amongst the tree stumps and pine needles. She and her classmates have beautifully hand painted each of the stones with various characters like Batman, Angry Birds and of course, Sponge Bob Square Pants!!
Oli was super impressed by Lizzy's confidence on the technical aspects of Heroes Trail, hardly flinching as she negotiated a rutted switchback, numerous steep pitches and off-camber, rooty sections not to mention looking intently for big, muddy puddles to blast through between sections of single track.
We love Lizzy's attitude ... this tenacious teenager has the perfect mix: at just 13, she is pushing her limits while having a ton of fun riding her mountain bike.

Why I love riding:
Cycling makes me feel free, and I get to hang out, in nature, with my friends after school and on the weekends.

From the peaks of the Outeniqua Mountains to the urban routes of Soweto, we love receiving stories of Signal riders thriving on their bikes, enjoying the freedom and excitement that two wheels gives them.
To celebrate this positivity, we dispatched Oli 'Pinner' Munnik to various parts of our beautiful country to join 6 Signal Shredders on their local trail.
