Cycle trails around Franschhoek, Cape Winelands

Cycle Trails in FranschhoekExplore the beautiful area of Franschhoek by bike and get real close to the unique countryside of fynbos and wine farms. If you have your own bike, try the 7 kilometre off-road tarred path running from De Villiers Street (opposite Franschhoek Cellars as you drive into the village) to the Wemmershoek/Berg River Dam crossroads, though bikers need to give priority to pedestrians (a bicycle bell gives a useful warning). The village side streets are also fairly quiet.

If you do not have a bike, don’t worry. Rent a mountain bike from local supplier, Manic Bicycles, who also offer tailor-made tours that includes stunning scenery, little used roads, picnics and wine tasting at various farms. They also cater for families with young children. For those with babies up to 2 years old, there are baby carriers for rent. From 3 years upwards, we have kiddies bikes to rent, varying in wheel size between 14″ – 24″. Tel: 021 876 4956: E-Mail: Website. Find them in the Franschhoek Centre, on the right as you drive into the village.
