South Africa is criss-crossed by roads. Some go through the city, others through the vineyards. Some roads are wide and tarred while others are mere tracks in the sand. Some take you to mountain tops while others lets you explore vibrant inner city neighbourhoods. Whichever road you choose to go exploring, the best mode of transport is by bicycle!
On a Cycle Tour, you will see the beauty of South Africa in a whole new light. Our operators offer a wide variety of tours suited for many different interests and levels of ability.
