Ride the Coast to Cape Town

06 Oct 2017

10 days of glorious coastline and incredible roads

South Africa is a land of incredible contrast and beauty. It possesses a vast array of landscapes, from spectacular coastline to a verdant, mountainous interior – which offer some of the most varied and enjoyable cycling on the continent.

This route takes riders along the famous Garden Route, passing sweeping, deserted beaches and heading inland through vineyards, indigenous bush and forested mountain slopes. Finishing on the beach at Gordon’s Bay, with vistas across to Cape Peninsula and the Cape of Good Hope.

March trips offer the extra buzz of joining thousands of other cyclists on the Cape Town sportive* around the roads of the Cape Peninsula – an unforgettable way to end your ride! *(additional fees apply)
