Cycle from Port Elizabeth to Cape Town

Our bike tour offers mainly easy rides throughout the trip as well as some moderate terrain for those who are a bit fitter and want some extra mileage. The trip is ideal for the casual and experienced cyclist. Existing bike handling skills, rules of the road knowledge and bike etiquette awareness are essential. The rides are mainly on tar and gravel roads and, on most days, the rides have extra sections available for those feeling like they want do more. We have arranged the trip to ride on quiet, scenic roads as much as possible, so that the cycling is relaxed and you can enjoy soaking up the scenery.

During the trip we will stay in quaint, 3 to 4-star accommodation and you have the choice to rent a standard hard-tail mountain bike or an e-bike with pedal assist (FTI: you still need to pedal)!
