Cape Town: E-Bike Cape Peninsula Tour

1. Cape Town: E-Bike Cape Peninsula Tour

After a short safety briefing, you will begin riding south to the Cape of Good Hope. This area is a world-renowned landmark, and contains monuments in honor of two of the world's most famous explorers: Vasco da Gama and Bartolomeu Dias. On your way, observe over 250 species of birds, baboons, ostriches, bucks, and the Cape Mountain Zebra. You will then head to Cape Point where you will get off your bike to travel to the lighthouse, where you will have some leisure time and eventually lunch at a local restaurant (not included). Once you’ve made the most of Cape Point, you will ride your bike back north to where you started to get back in the vehicle for the last attraction of the day. You will have the option to visit the penguins at Boulders Beach in the charming coastal town of Simon’s Town. There you will be able to observe them coming back from the ocean, basking on the beach, or just resting in their nest, from a non-intrusive platform above the floor.

Cape Town: Full Day Road Bike Tour

2. Cape Town: Full Day Road Bike Tour

Your guide will collect you from your hotel in the morning before you are transported to Camps Bay, the start of this route. After the bike setup and route briefing, begin the cycle. Start with a gradual ascent to Suikerbossie with great views of False Bay the whole way. At the top of Suikerbossie, you will head down into Hout Bay. This is the suburb where Chapman's Peak drive starts. This must-do road takes a gradual ascent to the top and this is where you will have a brief stop to admire the views. Then, take a fast and exciting descent into Noordhoek which will reveal great views of Long Beach close to the end. In Noordhoek, head over Black Hill and into Simonstown. Here, visit the penguin colony of Boulders Beach. Then take a gradual ascent upwards.  When you reach the top, you will pass the entrance of Cape Point and take a short cycle to Cape Point Ostrich Farm where you will even have the opportunity to feed the ostriches. From here, you will have an easy cycle through some breathtaking landscape to the sleepy town of Scarborough where some welcome coffee and a pastry awaits you at The Hub. Then, jump back on the bikes to cycle through Misty Cliffs, up Slangkop pass and in into the surfing community of Kommetjie. From Kommetjie, cycle back to Noordhoek and up Ou Kaapse Weg. This is a bit more of a steady ascent but the views over Cape Town and its suburbs are worth the effort. A steep descent takes you into Steenberg and through the suburbs of Constantia. Go up Southern Cross Drive to the top of Constantia Neck and back into Hout Bay. The last climb for the day is up Suikerbossie and an easy pedal to Camps Bay takes you to the end of this tour. Enjoy a well deserved lunch here before your guide takes you back to your hotel.

What people are saying about Simon's Town

The tour was a unique experience - by bike to the Cape of Good Hope. Everything worked out wonderfully. We were picked up on time from our lodge in Rondebosch. There were no other guests except us. On the one hand, our guide Angelo spoke perfect German and was so nice and courteous and he passed on his love for South Africa to us. At the Cape we had enough time to explore everything. Then we were still in Simonstown - Boulders Beach - with the penguins. Angelo then showed us a really nice coffee, where we drank very good coffee. I would do this tour again in a heartbeat. It was fantastic.

Absolutely brilliant! Grant our tour guide was great, really knowledgeable and the bikes where spot on and good to get about on. plus we saw some local wildlife too. 100% recommend this tour.

Wonderful trip - I had a private tour with Eduard (my guide) - everything went smooth and it was super cool to cycle E-bikes with 42km/h WOOHOOO

Spectacular trip. Michael was an awesome guide. Definitely a great ride
