Have you conquered these rides?

Cape Point National Park

This vast park is best seen on two wheels as you cycle your way on tarred roads for up to 45km. Look forward to seeing eland, bontebok and puffadders as you make your way towards the Cape of Good Hope. Graded as an ‘easy route’, it’s fun for both beginners and advanced cyclists.

Camps Bay to Hout Bay

Cycle from the beachfront of Camps Bay to the popular fishing village of Hout Bay, covering a total of 22km. The views along this route are something to behold. Ride along the beachfront of Camps Bay, along past Llandudno, sail down Suikerbossie and cruise into Hout Bay Village. When you reach the first set of traffic lights in Hout Bay, turn back up the short hill before a downhill coastal cycle back to Camps Bay. For those who can’t get enough, continue past Hout Bay to the exceptionally beautiful Chapman’s Peak drive.

Meerendal Mountain Bike Trails

Meerendal has played host too many prestigious bike races, including the international Absa Cape Epic. All the trails are graded from easy to medium, and have been designed for the whole family to enjoy. The route is made up of three inter-leading trails; Yellow, Red and Blue, ranging from 4km to 18km. They can take roughly 1-2 hours to complete depending on your fitness level. These trails use the natural contours of the land, avoiding any difficult climbs or dangerous rocky descents.

There is one main ascent on the long route to test your balance and legs, called ‘Stairway to Heaven’, featuring four specially constructed switchbacks that even a novice should be able to handle. The starting point of all the trails is behind the wine tasting venue at the end of the tarred road next to the car park. Meerendal is the perfect place to take the family for a ride, then retire to the bike-friendly restaurant to sample some of their excellent food, or maybe even try their award-winning wines across the road at the cellar.

Tokai Forest

This is a moderate to difficult outdoor cycle, which is only advisable for avid, experienced mountain bikers. The 25km route is made up of a gentle gradient through the lower shady pine forests before a rise towards Elephant's Eye Cave. You’ll reach an altitude of 928m, where you will see magnificent mountain and sea views before a downhill drop.

Rhodes Estate

Get going on a trail made for the whole family. Start on the tar road leading towards Rhodes Memorial and follow the well-marked path, which has stunning views of the Cape Flats, Table View and the Hottentots Holland mountains. Take a scenic ride through fynbos, forests and streams with only one short steep section to ascend Plum Pudding Hill. This is the perfect day out, easy and suitable for even the most inexperienced riders.
