What a great way to get out of the city and see the country! More than a dozen biking events – for everyone from the amateur to the seriously serious – are being staged across the Western Cape before the end of the year. See the list posted by Western Cape Tourism below.

And remember, even if there isn’t a race on, there are numerous bike holidays and bike day trips offered across the Western Cape and the country. Contact Cape Cycle Routes or Cape Cycle Tours, among many companies offering trips.
