Mountain Biking in Cape Town

We are very fortunate in South Africa to have such diverse areas for the mountain-biking enthusiast: from relatively easy, level paths along Table Mountain, to the more challenging single-tracks that wind up through the gum and pine forests to the plateau – there really is something for all levels of riders.
Bike lovers who are seeking to discover a beautiful city like Cape Town – in the saddle – for example, can expect to be inspired by incredible rides with breath-taking views along enjoyable tracks.  Our expert, skilled guides love nothing more than to show visitors the best kept secrets in South Africa.

Our guides can cater for the super-fit, super bike fans to the more happy-go-slow rider. Some areas – for example Tokai Forest in Cape Town – can be busy with loads of local riders on weekends especially, but our guides know some special, less-known tracks where you can explore and enjoy the bike. Peddle through world-class back country mountain bike trails, over incredible passes and bright green vineyards and discover the South Africa that we all love.

With so much choice all over the country, we can really tailor your mountain-biking experience to whatever you want. Whether you only have time to explore Cape Town and the winelands, or if you want to travel further afield up the gorgeous Garden Route and do some awesome rides along the coast – or even cycling on safari!
