It’s hard to believe that so much beauty, diversity, and wine can be found so close to Cape Town – not to mention first-class hotels and truly spectacular biking. In fact, this trip bears resemblance to many of our European jaunts, as we explore a compact area and pop easily from elegant hotel to elegant hotel. Pedalling well-paved roads lined with dramatic vistas, we’ll move from the vibrant city and Cape Peninsula to the rolling Winelands.
