Expertly filmed by Adriaan Mostert, this collection of rides from around Cape Town and Knysna in the Western Cape Province.

The region is a premier holiday destination for South Africans and international travellers and we are adding it to our bucket list.

Cape Town and the Garden Route (Knysna) showcase a variety of flora and fauna in South Africa – which means you’ll always experience something different and spectacular.

Whether you want to race on your road bike, take a long and scenic endurance ride, travel kilometres through farmland and vineyards on your gravel bike, or hammer it on world-class MTB routes – there is a limitless selection of things to do on two wheels.
