Experience the versatile landscapes of the Western Cape by Mountain bike. Partly we make use of sections of now famous Cape Epic Mountain bike race- On single trails, sometimes on remote jeep tracks we ride in perfect weather conditions through a real treasure chest of plant life. That´s why Table Mountain, the Jonkershoek and Bosmansbos Wilderness area are part of the UNESCO world heritage site Capensis. The average bike distance is about 25 miles and 3000 ft. with a few days being longer. The surface varies from coarse gravel to rocks and roots in the forests and in the Gouritz River we have to traverse the water course a few times. A special highlight is a 13 mile beach cycle. At the end of the trip see the Big 5 and more in Addo Elephant National Park. In Gordon´s Bay, Mossel Bay and Plettenberg Bay are ample of swimming possibilities on protected beaches. We stay in carefully selected guesthouses, hotels and chalets.
This tour shows you the vast natural diversity to be found in the western Cape, we get off the beaten track and cycle in the remote areas bringing you four different vegetation types, true wilderness and specially built single trail. No day is the same..
