Wines to Whales - a bike ride like no other!

One of the fastest-growing reasons for visiting South Africa are the almost permanently excellent cycling conditions: and with that brilliant climate come the events, which seem to get bigger and better and more spectacular every year.

A particularly famous one which is a mass participation event is the Wines To Whales ride: this goes from the Winelands in the north of the Cape down to the Overberg coast, and what an utterly spectacular ride that is! One of the best things about it is that it's very easy for non-cyclists to accompany cyclists along the route as the area abounds with affordable and pleasant places to stay.

The FNB Wines2Whales does require some degree of fitness, as well as a comfortable relationship with your mountain bike and surety in its ability to tackle the technical stuff. However, it’s not all about racing. There are large groups of recreational riders who go out just to enjoy the incredible scenery from the saddle, with no pressure to put in any specific time. All the riders are genuinely friendly and patient and you'll get to experience some South African gees (comaraderie)
