Overview

Providers of Personalised Guided Cycling Tours for all ages and abilities. We have great ROAD and Mountain bikes to hire for this, along with a support vehicle/driver for comfort and safety if required. We cover the Peninsula, Wine Lands and West Coast daily and the famous Garden Route can be ridden on one of our longer multi day ROAD excursions. Daily hikes are also available on the popular Table Mountain, Lion's Head and Devil's Peak routes. We also know the trails and hikes less travelled if you want peace and quiet away from the maddening crowds either on the Peninsula or the Wine Lands too. Being a Tour operator, we have partners for accommodation in and around Cape Town and the Wine Lands along with Boat Based Whale Watching, Abseiling, Tandem Paragliding and of course our favourite local Wine Estates and their offerings. We have all the contacts nationally including our various partners in Kruger and Addo Nature Parks for all your safari requirements. Ask and we shall answer!
