South Africa, Cape Town & the Winelands
Saturday 16th September 2017 to Monday 2nd October 2017 : 17 days
Spectacular coastal scenery of the Cape and wonderful riding in the hills and vineyards of the interior, plus the vibrant towns of Cape Town, Stellenbosch and Franshhoek. Average 70kmpd on good roads. Lovely, comfortable hotels. Opportunities for wine tasting and whale watching. Fly London Heathrow/Cape Town.
With daily distances from 30-98kms and some moderately challenging hills in the middle of the tour, this tour should be easily within the capabilities of a reasonably fit rider. The route starts and finishes in Cape Town, moving north initially, and going clockwise through Stellenbosch, Villersdorp, and Worcester (where there will an opportunity for a mini safari). On the coast at Arniston there will be an option to visit the most southerly point of Africa at Cape Agulhas, as well as whale watching off the rocks near Hermanus. Minibus transfer and full support supplied by local guides.
