It was a wonderful trip of almost 6 hours in total. (40km). Left at 9:30 am. At 11.00 coffee break at boschendal. , and at 13:30 lunch. Keep in mind that it is quite spicy. With a lot of off road. Some mountain bike experience is nice. The engine is also very nice. And I didn't regret my own cycling shorts either. It's nice to blast through. Few stops. Beautiful, varied environment.

A tough ride, if you go mountain biking without experience! Fortunately I was able to do the last part with the broom wagon. Lunch at Burgundy, unknown winery, was fine, drink in between at Bosschendal. The guide and the driver were very nice and helpful and after lunch we showed us a beautiful view of Franschhoek from the mountains.
