About Franschhoek Mountain Bike Tours

Franschhoek has, rightfully, been dubbed the culinary heart of South Africa. Visitors to this gorgeous little Western Cape town are spoilt for choice when it comes to the variety of things to taste. But, the absolutely beautiful setting in which the winelands, bistros, chocolatiers and bakeries are nestled is ideal for more than just wining and dining. Franschhoek Adventures invites visitors to the Cape Winelands to immerse themselves in the beauty from the saddle of a mountain bike.

Cycling adventures are extra special in this part of the world, thanks to the many different terrain types and the gorgeous vistas that each one affords. Choose from the:

Wine Tours

Combine your love of world-class wines with an outdoorsy excursion in the bicycle saddle on a guided Mountain Bike Wine Tour. There are flat routes available, as well as some that are a little more challenging, depending on your preferences. This tour includes three wine estates of your choice. Pairings of wine and food are the ideal way to get the most out of both. These guided tours include wine and pizza, wine and caramel, wine and chocolate, and brandy and truffle pairings. Your eats can be kept light so that you can cycle back comfortably, feeling replenished and energised.

Village Tours

Traverse the tar roads of this charming town that exudes the feeling of a quaint French village. This circular route is 15 kilometres long and showcases the main road, wine farms, fruit farms, Berg River Conservation Area and the fynbos of Franschhoek. Smell the wild flowers and spot the raptors before heading back into town through an exquisite vineyard. Visitors with a little extra time can include a stop at the local roastery for a cup of coffee and a pastry.

Out-rides

For mountain bikers that are fit and more experienced, out-rides in the surrounding mountain ranges are a super way to experience the very best of the Western Cape and Winelands. There are a number of challenging single-track trails through the fynbos, with stunning views of the river below and the craggy mountains all around. The guided out-ride takes two to three hours and include tricky areas of loose sand and rock, narrow paths, and some steep hills.

Cycling through and around Franschhoek promises an incredible perspective of this destination. Cyclists should dress in closed, comfortable shoes and wear plenty of high-factor sunscreen.
