Full description
Go mountain biking on Table Mountain, voted one of the 7 Natural Wonders of the World. The tour starts with pick-up at your hotel. Your guide will take you to Constantia Neck, which is the start of the route. After the route briefing and bike setup the ride will start. You will head up the top slopes of the mountain then keep to the jeep track with some gradual ascents and descents towards Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens. From here there are a combination of jeep track and single tracks through forest areas, as well as a steep descent in Newlands Forest. A short cycle takes you to the bottom gate of Rhodes Memorial, where a steep ascent takes you up the side of Devil's Peak and onto the front end Table Mountain. The jeep track is rocky and some of the ascents steep but the views make up for the effort. When you reach the top contour, an easy cycle to the top cable car station takes you to Kloof Neck. Cross the road and join the tar road to Signal Hill. A single track contours along Signal Hill and leads you to Kloof Neck road, for an easy descent to Camps Bay for a well deserved coffee. Your guide will then drop you off at your hotel.

Gideon is a fantastic Guide and it was awesome!

March 22, 2023

Great experience with a good guide. Individual tour around the Table mountain. Early start because of the extreme expected heat today. The way back was for a significant part in the shade. Gideon explained a lot and shared good information. Good adaptation to my skills on the mountainbike. We also had some time to enjoy the marvelous views going around the Table mountain including taking pictures. Certainly recommended tour, but MTB experience is necessary, including the ability to withstand the heat.

Met een gehuurde mtb een rit gereden over de flanken van de Tafelberg en op Lionshead. Huurfiets was goed afgestemd op lengte, hierover hadden we vooraf contact gehad met de gids. Voor ervaren mtb rijders een super ervaring!
