Trip Summary

Explore the beautiful wine country of Constantiaberg by bicycle, travelling though vineyards and tasting gourmet food and world-class wines along the way, as well as learning more about the history and culture of the Cape along your journey .

Highlights:

•Cycling through Vineyards

•Gourmet Food and Wine

•History and Culture

•Winelands

Depart from Cape Town and head south along the Peninsula towards Constantia, where we enjoy a tour of the famous Constantia Wine Ward on bicycles.

A short ride that starts from Constantia Uitsig and finishing at Groot Constantia for lunch and time to explore the historical buildings, perhaps with a cellar tour, time permitting. The route follows the leafy suburban streets of Constantia, with diversions to take in the wines and scenery of Buitenverwachting and Klein Constantia.

• Distance: 14km

• Grade: Easy to Moderate. The route is a mix of ascents and descents, although all are fairly short. There is a short section of dirt road that includes a steep climb that may require that some people push their

bikes. The biggest hazard on this route is traffic – there are no quiet country roads through the vineyards here, and while the traffic is reasonably light, this is mostly an urban ride.

• Alternative Routes: A half day event, the route can be switched around to start at Groot Constantia if doing an afternoon, after lunch ride.

NOTE:

This product is offered as a modular cycling experience that is designed to fit into a regular touring itinerary as an active and healthy component of a touring day. Note that while this may be the focus of a half day’s itinerary, it is not intended to occupy the entire half day, so guests should not necessarily expect a “full half day” of riding – important as some guests may be put off by a half day in the saddle. While we have listed a planned itinerary the guide on the ground will be flexible to particular guest requirements and amend the itinerary accordingly, provided that there is sufficient notice.
