4 Day Tour: 4 days riding
4 Days of fantastic riding just outside Cape Town. We take in the best that the Winelands have to offer and end off with a ride from the whale capital of the Cape along the cliffs to Gordon’s bay.
Day 1: Cape Town – Stellenbosch 80km (700m altitude gain)
We start our tour off from your hotel in Cape Town and use the increasingly popular bike path to avoid the morning traffic and ride out into the Durbanville Winelands. From here it’s a relatively easy rolling ride all the way through to the historic and vibey university town of Stellenbosch.
Day 2: Stellenbosch to Franschhoek 114km (1000m altitude gain)
Today’s ride is filled with culture, not only do we spend our time riding through the vineyards that made the Western Cape famous for its’ wines, but also stop at the Victor Vester Prison (from where Nelson Mandela was released in 1990) for a quick photo session with his statue at the entrance.
Day 3: Franschhoek – Hermanus 104km (1600m altitude gain)
The day starts off with a climb up Franschhoek Pass, built in 1822 by the Royal African Corps this is the first properly engineered road in the country. At 7.3km and an average gradient of 6.3%, its a great way to warm the legs up for the rest of our ride down to the heart of the South African whale coast.
Day 4: Hermanus – Gordon’s Bay 82km (1000m altitude gain)
Of all the roads in the world, today’s ride is rated right up there with the best of them. Majestic mountains and panoramic sea views welcome us into Gordon’s Bay and the end of our tour. After a drink and a bite to eat we’ll transfer you to your hotel in Cape Town.
