FIND YOURSELF - ECO-ACTIVE®
Cape Town, Half-Day, Fitness Cycle
Our most popular route starts from your hotel or the Radisson Blu hotel where we get onto our bikes and cycle onto the quiet streets of Sea Point with Lions Head towering above you and the chilly Atlantic Ocean on your side. We wind our way through the beautiful seaside suburbs of Clifton and Camps Bay, home to Cape Town’s prime real estate and a selection of picture-perfect beaches. We then make our way alongside the stunning Atlantic Seaboard, through the village of Bakoven, nestled at the foot of the famous Twelve Apostles mountain range, before our first climb of 4 km at about the 15km mark.
We will summit and then barrel-down the infamous Suikerbossie Hill that the riders of the Cape Town Cycle Race have to slog up every year in the largest timed race in the world. Hout Bay welcomes us and we take a breather to get ready for the next challenge. Now it’s the five-kilometre long climb up Chapman’s Peak Drive, surely one of the most stunning roads in the world. The summit of Chapman’s Peak Drive is 27.5km into the ride. This is the turning point for the Half Day Ride. We retrace our way and have lunch in beautiful Camp’s Bay, looking out over the glittering ocean or back in town.
The Full Day option continues along the beautiful ocean. We stop for lunch when the guests are hungry, either in picturesque Noordhoek or overlooking Table Bay. The ride is stunning with lots of photo opportunities along the way. Once you have had your fill of riding, we shuttle back to Cape Town.

Note: Prices are quoted in United States Dollars (USD) per person and are subject to change without notice. Even so we are based in South Africa, the recent swings in the local currency necessitated the conversion to a USD based rate system. This means we don’t change our rates with the swings and can absorb a 2 to 3 point swing up or down, without having to update rates constantly. It ensures a stable rate and consistent quality and product availability throughout our product portfolio.
Minimum group size is 2 guests (we’ll still run the tour for a single guest, subject to a private tour supplement of $20 USD). Enquire about discounts for larger groups (typically 6 guests and over).
