Bike & Saddle and Spier Estate concludes an Eco-Active Partnership


Spier, in the beautiful Stellenbosch valley, and Bike & Saddle have partnered to bring the public a number of high-end, fun and interesting cycling options on-and off the estate. Visitors to Spier will now have the option of renting a bicycle from the hotel to explore the grounds and perhaps further out.

One of the options would be to cycle out on the Heritage Route of the estate and learn about the many sustainable and green initiatives implemented by this award winning wine producer.

'Spier by Bike' can be done as a self-cycle with the whole family, and a map and description of the route, inclusive of a few mind teasers, can be obtained from the hotel concierge. Alternatively you can print it here and/or download the information, including GPS coordinates to your handheld device (Phone (smart or otherwise), iPad, GPS) for easy reference. (Our first Geocaching project)

1. Pick up your Bike & Saddle bicycle and accessories at the hotel
2. Collect the route map from reception - or download it here to save trees!
3. Follow the route and solve a riddle at each of the 11 heritage points
4. Make your contribution to an environmentally friendly planet
5. Return the bike and all equipment to the hotel

We offer various guided cycle tours from the estate too; why not bring the family out for a morning cycle on the 'Art' route with our specialist guide and experience the many art treasures, both on Spier Estate and towards Stellenbosch.

Naturally the product can't be complete without a wine cycle - tasting some of the best wines Stellenbosch has to offer. Join us for a guided half-day or full-day cycle trip, exploring this beautiful winelands area outside of Cape Town, inclusive of Bike & Saddle's usual attention to route, food, wine and the best guides in the business.
