African Bikers Mountain Bike Tour

by jpc_touring-bicycle

After our first day of biking, I used to be just a little afraid of what the second day of biking could be like. Fortunately, day 2 on the African Bikers mountain bike tour alongside South Africa’s Backyard Route turned out to be nowhere close to as troublesome as the primary day had been.

We began off the day in a lot the identical method we had began the day earlier than. We awoke early, ate breakfast at our guesthouse in Cape City after which loaded each ourselves and all of our belongings into the ready van and trailer. We’d not be coming again to Cape City, however would as an alternative be slowly making our method from right here to the distant metropolis of Port Elizabeth over the following twelve days.

Close to the College city of Stellenbosch we exited the van and equipped for a brief, however nice pre-lunch bike trip by way of a personal winery. Like most of the vineyards in South Africa, this personal property had invested in a various community of mountain bike trails that they used to make extra income for his or her enterprise.

Marked farm roads and single-track trails took us up a gradual hillside, then dropped us down onto some great single-track trails, with sharp turns, a couple of small drops, a small picket bridge crossing and spectacular views all alongside the best way.

After ending our trip, we loaded the bikes again up on the trailer after which ate lunch on the again patio of the property’s personal personal restaurant. The solar blazed down on us as we ate splendid salads, pasta, ice cream and extra!




After lunch we jumped again within the van and drove to a different marked trail-head.

After unloading the bikes and making ready to as soon as once more hit the street, we started yet one more uphill climb (though not almost as unhealthy because the one on day 2) after which loved a protracted, downhill single-track path that twisted and turned its method by way of a spectacular mountain valley that was a mixture of excessive desert shrubs and deep forest pines.











Again on the van, the consensus among the many group was that this explicit trip was our favourite of the tour up to now… and I agreed. Wanting again on it now, this one trip was most likely my favourite of your complete tour.

After Kim and Steve loaded our bikes again on the van, we drove again into the close by metropolis of Stellenbosch and took refuge on the aptly named “Stellenbosch Resort.” We showered, rested after which ate dinner at a close-by restaurant. I went to mattress early, making ready each my physique and thoughts for the following day of biking.
