I booked this cycling tour very last minute as other local cycle hire shops failed to respond, Mark was the total opposite he responded straightaway which was fantastic.
After a few emails I had confirmed a long ride with cycle hire passing through all the areas that I really wanted to experience before the end of my South African holiday.
The group was only small, myself, Mark and one other rider also named Mark from Australia which was perfect, I was definitely the less experienced cyclist especially during the climbing but this didn't matter as Mark was on hand to help and guide me through the pain, If I was behind the pace Mark would ensure he either waited for me or cycled with me to push me through the pain barrier.
We cycled up and over Chapmans Peak twice which was such a fantastic experience through Houts Bay, Simons Town, past the Cape Point entrance, Scarborough then back to our starting point next to the 12 Apostle's Hotel, 100km in total with over 4000 feet of climbing.
Mark is not only a fantastic guide but also great company with a wealth of knowledge of the area and of cycling in general, we managed to stop off at 2 fantastic coffee and lunch spots which were well needed.
The day was everything I dreamt of and more and really cant wait to return to South Africa to ride this route again and I will definitely be using Mark as my guide and contact for cycle hire as it takes all the worry of planning a route and being out there alone.
If you are looking for a professional company for cycle hire and a really safe riding experience then Cycle The Cape really is the one.
