Full description
Enjoy a challenging half-day morning mountain biking tour that follows a loop from Table Mountain to Constantia Neck and back. See the region’s nature as well as some cityscapes while getting a good 3.5-hour workout in. The ride covers a total of 40 kilometers with 1000 meters of climb.

Your tour starts at Table Mountain’s lower cable car station, heading east. The first 3 kilometers of the ride is on tar along a very scenic road at the base of Table Mountain, perfect to get used to your bike. Continue on a rocky Jeep track down toward Newlands Forest. From here, there’s a combination of jeep tracks and single tracks through forested areas, followed by a gradual ascent towards Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens.

Enjoy beautiful views down toward the garden followed by a more technical narrow trail that will need your focus. Kirstenbosch have put in some serious work to the trails, with bridges and sections of the trails bedded with wood chips. Challenge yourself on some steep sections before reaching the mid-point for a coffee break at Constantia Neck.

Your ride back to Cape Town takes you along the lower base of Table Mountain and through some of Cape Town’s expensive suburbs. If needed, the group will stop at a tea garden or enjoy a meal at a restaurant. The way back is packed with a good mix of Jeep tracks, singles, and some tar sections.
