Cycling adventures in Cape Town
Cape Town is a well-established cycling destination, hosting big international events such as the Pick n Pay Cape Argus Cycle Tour and the Absa Cape Epic, as well as providing a number of paved and off-road cycle routes.
Mountain bikers are spoilt for choice, with Table Mountain and Signal Hill offering a variety of routes to suite riders of all experience levels. Tokai Forest in the southern suburbs of Cape Town is recognised as a world-class mountain biking destination.
Dedicated cycle paths have been set up around the city in a bid to reduce the number of cars on the roads and provide opportunities for urban adventure. The most recent addition is MyCiTi bike ways, an 8km path from the city centre to Woodbridge Island in Milnerton. This route provides some excellent views of the Cape coastline and saves explorers a lot of time in traffic.

Bike and Saddle offer cycle tours around South Africa, some of which last as long as 2 weeks. In the Western Cape, they offer tours of Cape Town, the Cape Winelands, the townships, the West Coast, as well as the Garden Route.
If you simply want to hire a bicycle and travel according to your own schedule, Bike and Saddle can arrange this too.
These internationally acclaimed events are well worth attending.
