Visiting Cape Town from Europe


Recommended Posts

Hello, I will be in Cape Town between Friday 24th of November for a week and looking for groups to join. Preferably MTB but also happy to join a nice road ride. I will be staying in the center a bit south from V&A waterfront. I don't have a car so should start around that area. I'm aiming for higher amateur level, marathon/XC flowy single trails. 

I posted another topic to get advise on where to ride safely on my own also. Direction Tokai for example.

I'm especially looking for longer rides on Friday, Saturday and Monday, and maybe some shorter ones Tuesday till Thursday. 


Would be super happy to join some locals and 1/ see the best places and 2/ be safe


Thanks a lot!

Below are a few route ideas for you of varying distance/duration all starting in town. Regarding safety of riding on your own... reluctant to give concrete advice as you just never know, but this weekend is UTCT so there will be a lot of activity (runners & spectators) on the mountain so hopefully that makes it a little safer if you do go out on your own 🤷‍♂️










I would say that you want to avoid the areas inside these red circles if you are alone...
