Imagine yourself on a guided bike tour pedaling through a tapestry of picturesque landscapes while enjoying spectacular scenery and meeting the friendly people of the famous Stellenbosch Winelands. A quick cycling tour is sure to capture your heart as you take time to indulge in a slower paced lifestyle, especially if it is filled with culinary delights washed down with even better wines. Choose to discover local culture and heritage at you leisure or climb the vast mountains that blanket the area. Either way, hiring a bicycle and experiencing the splendour of the Western Cape in a most unique way will not disappoint.

As a premier tourist destination, the name Stellenbosch conjures up images that very few other South African towns or cities can. The region offers award winning wines, gourmet restaurants, world renowned cultural, retail and leisure attractions as well as something for the sporty and adventurer. This, combined with the vibrancy of a cosmopolitan centre, makes Stellenbosch the place to stay when visiting the region.
As a mountain biking destination, Stellenbosch is probably South Africa but the town has recently seen a huge increase in popularity within the international mountain bike and road professional circles as well, and is now seen as one of the best destinations in the world for leisure cycling and off-season training. In fact, the opening round of the 2018 UCI Mountain Bike World Cup will be held on the slopes of the Coetzenburg Mountain, bringing with it the crème de la crème of international cross country mountain biking.
With its endless trails and open roads in and around the town, one is most definitely spoilt for choice and availability.

Their kindness and support helps us in our community projects in and around Stellenbosch, that without them would not be possible at all.
