Hiking group Take Back Our Mountain (TBOM) has organised a mass hike on Elsies Peak between Fish Hoek and Glencairn to raise awareness and put pressure on local authorities to step up their efforts to reduce violent crime in the Table Mountain National Park.

To expand the reach of this initiative, hikers and runners will be joined by cyclists, who have also been suffering from an increased number of criminal attacks on the mountains and rural roads of the Peninsula

Hikers and cyclists are invited to meet in the parking area of Fish Hoek Beach at 07:30 on Sunday 24 February when a mass photo will be taken before the hikers set off for the Grade 2 hike up the mountain overlooking the valley with views of the entire False Bay coastline, as well as towards Noordhoek Beach and Chapman’s Peak on the Atlantic coast.

The hike is expected to last about three and a half hours and participants are advised to wear comfortable walking shoes and bring sunglasses, sunblock, insect repellent, gloves, a beanie, rain jacket, snack pack and water. Cameras and binoculars are optional, as is an extra set of dry clothes in the event of weather changes

Cyclists will set off on their planned routes. Clubs that have already indicated their willingness to participate in the initiative include Team Outcast, FPG, Pelican Park Social, Aghmad Adams Social, MC2, Alpha Social and plenty more individual cyclists

TBOM hikes are free for all to enjoy the mountains in a large group due to all the criminal activity in the national park. “We enter the mountains accepting their beauty, challenges and risks and we try to keep our hikes safe and enjoyable. We all hike at our own risk.”

V The hike leaders are Taahir Osman and Michael Fish. For further information contact Taahir Osman on 073 624 4287.
