Many adventure activities exclude younger kids because they’re just too tough on little legs, like hiking, or just too risky. Scootours is a super family-inclusive thing to do. Children as young as four can participate- riding upfront with a parent or guide and those who have reached the magic age of double-digit ten can operate their own Monster Mountain Scooter if they’re comfortable riding a bicycle. There is no upper age limit and minimal fitness required.
This is a wonderful way to introduce the family to Cape Town’s iconic scenic beauty and a great alternative to a day on the beach if Cape Town’s infamous wind is blowing. A Scootours adventure is a freewheeling tour of Table Mountain, Lions Head, and the city bowl. Scootours transport you about 350-meters up to the trailhead, where you’ll have time to enjoy amazing views of the city and dramatic mountain surroundings. After winding down the lower slopes of both these massifs, bouncing on buoyant fat tires through forest and fynbos, you’ll have a great sense of the layout of Cape Town.
Scootours qualified adventure guides have a scrupulous process for preparing the family for their ride. Even though the non-motorized scooters are easy to operate and highly maneuverable everyone will get a chance to practice and make sure they feel confident before they descent. Helmets and cycling gloves are issued and mandatory for all participants.
The final leg of the Scootours adventure ends in one of Cape Town’s most popular urban fringe parks where local families gather on weekends to walk and picnic. Scootours guests are welcome to bring their own refreshments, ending the adventure with a family picnic, while Scootours shows you the footage taken during the day. Apart from some classic shots for the family ‘album’ the best thing about this exciting downhill ride, is the joy of family connection through having fun together.
