What a fabulous way to really see and experience the drama of Cape. I was a little apprehensive about this excursion as although my husband is a keen cyclist, I am not - usually only going to the shops on my Brompton! However, Mark was a great guide and really made the day an experience to remember, encouraging me to... More

After a fantastic day's riding in August 2014, I had the opportunity this November to spend some more time with Mark at the end of a business trip. We did 65 miles or so in Stellenbosch and Franschhoek, after which I stayed in Mark and Gaynor's self-catering flat in Fish Hoek (the views from the deck!!!), and on the second... More

Having found myself in Cape Town for a family wedding ,a keen cyclist & staying amongst some of the most beautiful riding country to be seen ,I found Mark from Cape Cycles online ,whom provided me not just a good hire bike, but some invaluable knowledge of the local rides available in the area. The day guided ride was a... More

We visited Cape Town on our Honeymoon and booked a day with Mark to head out around the Cape. My husband is an experienced cyclist whereas I am fairly new to it so there was a real gap in our ability. Not a problem to Mark, the bikes we rented were great and Mark took us on a great route... More

Our party of 4 had a terrific time touring the Cape and the Winelands for three days of riding and sightseeing. Coming from California, we wondered beforehand whether it would be so different riding the coast and vineyards of the Cape region. Well, the scenery and history (to both of which Mark is an excellent guide) were unique. We had... More

Happened to stumble across “Cycle the Cape” and what a find it turned out to be. We had the most fantastic week with Mark and Jaco cycling from George to Cape Town, winding along the Garden Route and wobbling through the vineyards! Oh and a few solid climbs thrown in for good measure! Breath-taking scenery, fantastic quality and unique styles... More

Excellent cycle tour, Mark and Jaco were so friendly and fun. All the accomodation selected was amazing - independent and charming. The cycling was bespoke and I pushed myself alot more than I thought I could without even realising as the routes were so stunning. Definately recommend and would love to go back

We had a 5 day bike tour that was fantastic! Mark was very personable and fun to be around.. The tour was very customized for us with wine tastings and dinners as well as great bike riding. The accommodations for the most part were quite nice. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would highly recommend Mark and "Cycle the Cape". It... More

Unfortunately I was let down last minute by the company I was supposed to ride with. I had limited time in Cape Town so I needed to find someone quite quickly. Luckily I sent Mark an email and within a very short time he came back to me, and the ride was back on again. He came and met me... More
