This week South Africa’s Adriaan Mostert has an epic set of rides on display in and around his home town of Cape Town.

The collection really shows off the scenic beauty of the area with some stunning vistas, tidy climbs and nice rollers to keep you entertained. 

Adriaan has a few more tricks up his sleeve and we’ll be releasing his Table Mountain route with the launch of the Tour of South Africa, a free event for all FulGaz subscribers next month.
