What you'll do
We'll meet at our favourite bike cafe and coffee shop Coffeeworks at Specialized Stellenbosch and grab a coffee while I fit you to your Specialized Diverge Carbon Comp gravel bike. Once you're all set up, we'll begin our gravel loop of the Cape Winelands, covering between 50-100kms in distance on predominantly gravel roads or jeep track. Depending on your skill level and preference, we'll either travel a circular route via The Spice Route and Boschendal (100kms) or stick to the more technical gravel tracks and trails of the Stellenbosch Mountains (60km). We'll stop en route for a delicious light lunch at one of the many scenic wine estates or farm restaurants in the area; before heading back to Coffeework for a coffee.
I'm an experienced British road cyclist turned mountain biker and gravel grinder. I've ridden loads of the iconic British and European events and am now lucky to call beautiful Stellenbosch my home! With the Cape Winelands as my playground, I offer challenging tar, gravel and mountain bike tours within this insane natural setting of mountains and vineyards. I ride every day; come rain or shine, and have extensive insider knowledge of local trails and cycle routes. As an accredited SA tourist guide, I put safety, adrenaline and adventure first!
