Your Itinerary and abbreviations:
KM = distance cycled by bike
Get collected from your hotel and drive towards the second oldest town of South Africa – Stellenbosch. On arrival at the wine estate, we do the final bike checks then tackle any of the available routes. Basically, you’ve got a 5.5km loop on Delheim, 6.5km on Muratie, a 8.5km loop on Uitkyk, and finally a 11.5km Simonsberg loop. There are also a few linking trails and tricky downhill sections, giving just over 40km of hand-crafted trails from the Dirtopia crew. This is but the tip of the proverbial iceberg though, as hundreds of meters of single-track are being added every month, with links envisaged to at least a dozen wine estates within the immediate Stellenbosch area.
Once back at the car park, don't forget to peel your fingers from the handlebars before enjoying lunch (extra). We then load the bikes and drive back to Cape Town for the drop off at your accommodation.
