Geography & Climate
Cape Town is located at the most south-westerly point of Africa. The City is between Table Mountain, Devils Peak and the Atlantic Ocean. Cape Town has the same latitude as Sydney.
Wikipedia States "The Cape Town region generally, with its Mediterranean climate, extensive coastline, rugged mountain ranges, coastal plains, inland valleys and semi-desert fringes, has much in common with Southern California"
The Cape Peninsula's Mediterranean climate has average temperatures during December to March sitting below 28°C, with a South-East wind. Which means the relative humidity is a very comfortable 70% on average. Please note humidity and “relative humidity” can, and do feel very different.

Cycling Terrain
This tour explores South African on its back roads, which are ideal for cycling. Some are in good condition, some are potholed and slightly rougher. We also cycle on well-maintained dirt roads or rougher tracks in a few locations.  The wine estates have easy singletrack, mountain bike routes in them.  A mountain bike is included in the tour cost, so you do not need to fly with your own.

Accommodation & Food
We use hotels with en-suite rooms. All places provide good food and most have swimming pools and spacious grounds. We visit many local cafes, restaurants, winelands and bars so you get a full flavour of local culture and cuisine. For meals not included there are many places to eat with prices ranging from £5-£10 in a decent café up to £10 or £15 in a very good restaurant (depending on the food you order), with drinks costing approximately £1 for a commercial beer to £2 for a craft beer. A very good bottle of wine in a restaurant is £8 – £14.

Cycle Rental (Included in the tour cost)
We provide high quality, well maintained rental bikes in South Africa for this tour. Bikes are provided in the country, and will be ready for you when you arrive. Our tour leaders are experts at cycle mechanics and setup so will ensure that your bike is correctly adjusted for you. This extra care has made a big difference to many clients over the years – ensuring that they remain comfortable on the bike and get the most out of their cycling.

Passports’ & Visas
A full passport is required for entry in to South Africa, by UK citizens. No visa is required for a holiday duration less than 90 days.

Flight Options
This trip is timed to fit with the most popular flights to South Africa – on Emirates Airlines, KLM etc. We provide our tours at a flight excluded price to allow you to select your own travel arrangements, if you prefer. However, we do work in partnership with a flight agent who has taken care of our clients for over 15 years, and is an expert at ensuring that cycles travel with you smoothly (if you want to take your own). If you would like some extra nights accommodation either pre or post tour we’d be happy to arrange these for you.
