WINELANDS CYCLING TOUR
Experience the historic Cape wine route with a personalised guide who will take you a winelands meander.
Stellenbosch is home to the oldest wine route in the Cape. We start cycling from the historic Lanzerac wine estate, which is one of the oldest first farmed in 1695. We continue up the Jonkershoek valley which is framed by a towering wall of rock, punctuated by the Jonkershoek Twins. The valley is a setting of fynbos, fern-lined kloofs and spectacular waterfalls. The plantation offers a 10km ride for beginners and more demanding rides of up to 40km for the experienced mountain bikers.
In Franschhoek, , named after the French Huguenots who settled here in the 17thcentury and utilised their expertise to transform this landscape into a prime wine producing area. We start cycling approximately 20 to 40 km on secondary roads and cycle paths, cycling past many beautiful wine estates with the Groot Drakenstein Mountains as a backdrop. We cycle through the historical town of Franschoek to the Huguenot Monument. You might be tempted to pop into the many boutique shops and art galleries. For lunch we cycle back to one of the many wine estates in the region for a gourmet picnic lunch.
After lunch, we can either continue wine tasting over or visit other attractions in the area, before returning to Cape Town.
