Mountain biking is a fast growing adventure sport, perfect for those that want to combine an adrenaline rush with a work out in stunning scenery.
Cape Town is blessed with a wide variety of great mountain biking trails. You can ride through forests and up and down mountain tracks. There are tracks for novices and pro riders alike.
How about a morning in the saddle off the beaten track at Cape Point National Park? Look out for eland and ostrich as you race past flowering fynbos and ericas. Deer Park in Cape Town is a favourite with the city slickers who head here to get those Boots Dirty after a day in the office. You can make your way all the way around Table Mountain. All stress, meetings and memos melt away as you traverse the slopes of Cape Town’s iconic mountain.
Silvermine and Tokai forest are heavens for Mountain Biking. Bikers head here for the great views and the challenging climbs on Ou Wapad. Troups of curious baboons will keep you company as you pick your way down again on the many single tracks leading to a well deserved rest and treat at the teahouse in the arboretum.
