Mountain Biking in Franschhoek

We think this is one of the best places on earth for mountain biking.  Choose from tough mountainous routes through to gentle, flatter trails, and our expert biking guides will look after you all the way.

Whatever your age or level of fitness, or mountain biking experience (beginners welcome!) our expert team can create the ideal routes for you.  If you just want to head off for half a day, that’s fine.  But if you would rather go for a day or more, we can organise everything for you, including accommodation en route.

Of course, we will provide you with good quality bikes and safety equipment, and adjust the routes accordingly if you (or the guides) feel that things are getting too tough (or too easy).  Naturally, your safety and enjoyment is our primary concern.

With such stunning countryside in and around Franschhoek, mountain biking is a fabulous way to enjoy it and, of course, stay fit at the same time.
