This guided bike tour starts at 9:00 at the Adventureshop (located at Black Horse Centre, corner of Dorp and Mark Street). Each rider will collect a bicycle or e-bike and helmet to suit their size. We will carry a snack pack for each rider which is included in the rate. The guide will carry saddle panniers for those who would like to buy wine en route.
The tour visits some interesting historic sites in Stellenbosch town and then cycles further to the scenic Jonkershoek Valley where the mountains form part of a UNESCO world heritage site. A winding road through oak and poplar forests leads to a wine estate nestled in the valley bottom, here you can take in the stunning views while doing wine tasting of some award winning wines.
On the way out of the valley, you will stop at another wine estate which sports beautiful grounds and historic Cape Dutch architecture. Here we will do a private cellar tour before we sit down for a Chocolate and Wine pairing that will make your taste buds tingle.
After the tasting we will head back into Stellenbosch town via the famous Stellenbosch University before ending the tour at our offices.
There are some variations on this guided bike tour for varying levels of difficulty so the tour can be tailored to suit your cycling ability.

The tour from Stellenbosch to Franschoek was great, adventurous and fun. My tour guide Sevo Tamboer was friendly, helpful and very patient. I will definitely tour again with you guys. Adventure Shop rocks
Excellent tour service! They were very punctual and answered all my questions. Booked the transport to and game drive at Inverdoorn Reserve. Had a great time there. The following weekend I booked the Shark Cage Diving. Sadly I got sea motion sickness. My guide Colin was very considered and bought a bottle of mineral water and some mints for me.
We went for the ebike ride from Stellenbosch to franschhoek. At first glance it might appear expensive but it's actually great value. The ebikes are great. You have a stop for a drink then at the end lunch with small wine tasting included. They also provide water and a support vehicle which will follow behind en route. You start at 9am and get back about 4 pm. We had Sevo and Colin looking after us for the day, great fun. Highly recommended :-)
Bike was fine but when I arrived to rent a bike on a Saturday, it was told me that I needed to return the bike earlier because they were going to close. The service is very amateur.
