At leisurely pace, avoiding public roads, accompanied by a professional guide with vehicle support and e-bikes that take hills in their stride - this is a better than easy way to experience nature and these facinating destinations. Each day we take you from the V&A Waterfront to discover another iconic attraction. There are so many interesting things to stop and see that actual riding time is less than two hours:
Cape Point is on the most south westerly tip of Africa in a National Park. We take you here on the first day where we show you how to ride your e-bike on well surfaced roads and where the maximum speed limit for cars inside the Park is 40 kph. The small group then sets off to traverse the park, taking in the famous diverse floral kingdom and wild life including a variety of antelope, ostriches and baboons. We cross to the other side of the peninsula and ride along the coast's crashing surf. Then we take a funicular ride to visit the historic powerful lighthouse on a peak that rises up 250 m at the tip of the Point. One of the most treacherous coastlines for mariners, the lighthouse was built as the most powerful in Africa, its light visible for over 60 km.
We then start driving back on a scenic coastal route stopping for lunch at a restaurant with charachter to review the day before heading back to the Waterfront.
We again collect you from The V&A Waterfront, this time going through Cape Town's beautiful Southern Suburbs to a road that takes us up to the top of the other side of Table Mountain. The Silvermine Panorama Loop is a single track that takes us to spectacular views to the East, West and South of the Peninsula. Few people get to see these views but the e-Bikes make it feasible for you. Ride among the Proteas and some of the 2000 varieties of fynbos in this National Park. Sometimes the going is hard but the reward is worthwhile. Our guide and support staff will be with you should you need assistance.
Another scenic drive home, this time we stop at the charming Kalk Bay harbour to enjoy a lunch that includes freshly caught fish and soak up the sights at this authentic working African harbour.
They have been making wine for over 350 years in the Cape and many of the earliest estates have survived with their charachteristic Cape Dutch architecture.
Combine that with art, culinary experiences, dramatic scenery, wine tasting and you will understand why the Cape winelands are a must-see for even non-wine drinkers.
This day we collect you at the V&A Waterfront and head north for an e-Biking experience on scenic gravel roads in one of the most famous old estates. Ride amoung the vineyards with the mountains towering over you. We stop for refreshments half way and then end the morning's ride with a wine tasting experience. We enjoy lunch at a wine estate or in the historic town of Stellenbosch - a living museum with a vibrant street culture. After lunch we will browse around Stellenbosch centre before returning to Cape Town.
"Better than Easy"
Making your e-Bike experience as safe and easy as possible. We show you how to ride an e-Bike before we start. We do that by having a professional guide and a small group. We go at a leisurely pace so that you can look around. We avoid public roads wherever possible. Where we can we use gravel roads rather than single track trails. We have a vehicle in support in case you want a break.
