Guided Bike Tour through Stellenbosch

Price from: R690 per person

Duration: 5 hours

This tour combines the beautiful scenery and sites of Historic Stellenbosch with some excellent wine pairings and some healthy outdoor exercise. Each rider will receive a Mountain bike and helmet to suite their size before we cycle through the historic centre of Stellenbosch and learn more about the sights and history of this, the second oldest town in South Africa. We will then cycle out towards the Jonkershoek Nature reserve where you will learn more about the Fauna and Flora of this region and on our way back we will stop at 2 fantastic wine estates for tastings before returning back to Stellenbosch town via the Stellenbosch University. The cycle is not very stressful and only a relative fitness level is needed. For those who want to do some more cycling, we have an extra loop into the Jonkershoek Nature Reserve that we could do before the first tasting.

Itinerary

This tour starts at 9:00 at the Adventureshop (located at Black Horse Centre, Corner of Dorp and Mark Street):

Where each rider will collect a bike and helmet to suit their size. We will also carry a snack pack for each rider which is included in the rate. The guide will carry saddle panniers for those who would like to buy wine en route.

Your guide will then take you via some interesting historic sites of Stellenbosch Town, into the scenic Jonkershoek Valley:

A winding road through oak and poplar forests leads to a wine estate nestled in the valley bottom, here you can take in the stunning views while doing wine tasting of some award winning wines. This will be followed by a circular route taking you further into the Jonkershoek Valley where you can enjoy fantastic views of the surrounding mountains. On the way out of the valley, you will stop at another wine estate which sports beautiful grounds and historic Cape Dutch architecture. We will do a Chocolate and Wine pairing that will make your taste buds tingle. After the tasting we will head back into Stellenbosch Town via the famous Stellenbosch University before ending the tour again at the Tourism office (There are some variations to the route, with varying levels of difficulty so the tour can be tailored to suite your cycling ability.)
