I stayed in Simon's Town recently to see family and wanted a road bike to use every now and then for some rides around the Cape Peninsula. I found Cycle The Cape and Mark was extremely helpful. I rented a 56cm FELT aluminium frame with carbon forks and seat post with 10 speed Ultegra for 9 days. It was in good condition and perfect for the riding I was doing. I picked up from his Fish Hoek base but he would have been happy to deliver/pick up for a reasonable fee.
I'll definitely be calling the guys next time I'm in the Cape. It was a friendly, efficient and well priced service.

I was limited with time so wanted to use my free day in Cape Town to cycle around Cape Point. I hired a bike from Mark, picking it up from his home in the morning and returning it the same day. It was really easy to arrange and Mark gave lots of useful tips on routes and places to stop. Certainly the best cycle ride I have ever had! I hope to come back with more time and do some of the fuller tours with cycle the cape.

I am an avid cyclist and would highly recommend Mark if you wish to explore the Cape. We cycled 80 miles over some of the most stunning scenery available - I was extremely lucky with the weather (sunny and hardly any wind) given the time of year, but the views made it worthwhile. Mark knew exactly what route to take given my conversation with him regarding my cycling experience and what I wanted to achieve. The equipment is exactly what you would expect given the life it is going to lead - sturdy and reliable (don't go expecting carbon fibre bikes or dura ace groupsets as these are workhorses).
I would love to return and cycle more of the Cape, or even further afield if I had the time (unfortunately my schedule only permitted me 1 day to cycle this time). Mark was happy to ride at my pace (about 16mph), but could clearly have gone at a faster pace if required.

I travel to Cape Town for Business and annually for a vacation. I have rented Bikes from Mark for years now and his services and advice are excellent. He is extremely accommodating always finding way to help us if we need another bike, deliver bikes or advice on where to ride. If you looking to hire a bike or take a cycle tour around the Cape I would not think twice to contact Mark from Cycle the Cape.

I recently spent a month staying in Noordhoek for work and hired a car and a bike. The bike was from cyclethecape and was a great investment. Mark delivered and collected the bike to / from my house. It was in good condition and well set up with saddle bag, necessities for on-road repairs (not needed), pump and two water bottles (supplied filled and chilled). The new rear cassette required some adjustment to be made to the gearing, but I could solve this quickly by calling into a local bike shop with which Mark has an arrangement.

The cape peninsula is a superb location for road cycling, which smooth roads and jaw dropping scenery. If, for a you having a bike is a 'must have', then Mark can supply, with a prompt and personal service.
