Overview

Cycling around Franschhoek is a fun way to explore the area, do some wine tastings have lunch at one of the many vineyards or just to get some exercise. There are different routes from beginner to experienced cycling in the area with absolutely amazing views. We also cater for the littler explorers from one year old and up so bring the family.

Great place to hire a bike for the day and tool around the vineyards and backroads. The trails up in the mountains are a bit barren and there are few trees, so wear sunscreen!!
