Routes to ride around Cape Town

Sharkie 2

Recommended Posts

Cape Town hubbers I need training routes for my 9 day holiday break in the Cape from 21-29 Dec. Would need to be 3.5hr+ routes. Don't mind doing routes 2-3 times. Garmin files would help a lot as I generally know the places around the Western Cape but not the streets obviously.


We will be based in Durbanville for the duration of our stay.

From Durbanville you have many options as most roads has a wide shoulder once you get out in the open.


A must do scenic route - D'ville - Stellenbosch - Helshoogte - Boschendal - Franschoek - And even over the pass down to Theewaterskloof Dam. It is beautiful all the way!


Franschoek is a nice place to stop for a cup of coffee. It will be busy though.

I don't mind a busy road just as long as it is safe I reckon the roads and public down in the Cape are more tolerant to cyclists compared to the dumb Gautengers up here. We will be riding from 5am everyday so I reckon we will be finished daily before the rush....we are really looking forward to scenic routes there. Weather is also apparently great that time of the year
