Bikes ‘n Wines runs guided bicycle and walking wine tours through the Cape’s famous winelands. Our guests enjoy some of the finest local wine tastings and food pairings the region has to offer while pedalling or walking through exclusive wine estates. Whether you’re more inclined to a gentle, morning cruise or want to get your heart pumping on an adventurous mountain bike tour, we have something to suit everyone.
More recently Bikes ‘n Wines introduced Cape Town bike tours, which offer guests a unique opportunity to explore the city’s arts, culture and best kept secrets in terms of local food and beer, as well as longer, guided road bike tours that steer guests around the Cape Peninsular and exquisite Coastal Roads. For hiking enthusiasts, we offer guided hikes up Lion’s Head and Table Mountain.
Bikes ‘n Wines also offers standard bike rentals for those wanting a self-guided experience.
Our aim is to speak to active, adventurous individuals and groups seeking a more authentic South African touring experience. Rather than simply seeing Cape Town through the window of a car or the lens of a camera, we believe that immersing yourself in the rich, diverse, natural wanders that the city and region have to offer will leave you with fonder memories and an unforgettable connection to South Africa.
Our tours are unique because they provide you with an exclusive opportunity to visit a spectrum of the Cape’s finest destinations, from the exquisite Cape Winelands to the bustling, eclectic city of Cape Town and the postcard coastal roads and mountainous regions that surround it, by bike or on foot. On our Winelands tours we encourage our guests to stop and smell the roses, literally, to take the time to dip their toes in the rivers and dams dotted across the acres of vineyards, feel the lush green grass under foot and really embrace and learn about the historically diverse area by experiencing it in its entirety. On our city and surrounds tours we invite guests to taste, touch, feel, see and hear what Cape Town is about, to experience the city in all her beauty from sunrise to sunset.
We mind our business: by ensuring we align our long-term goals to support the economy and the livelihood of our staff. At Bikes ‘n Wines we are invested in bettering the lives and employment opportunities of our team and offer a Guide Up-skilling Programme. We work with and train local PDI individuals from Trainee through four levels, until they have a recognised national qualification and other tourism related skillsets.
Bikes ‘n Wines is an original concept born out of Cape Town and were one of the first companies to combine tourism, mountain biking and wine tasting in South Africa. Our tours are targeted at young-hearted and outdoor-loving people who would like to experience a tour from a different and authentic viewpoint. As locals to the area, we have handpicked and partnered with authentic, first-class, established wine estates in the both the Stellenbosch and Franschhoek wine regions, as well as the Elgin Adventure Centre based at the Railway market in Elgin, with the simple intention of showcasing the very best South Africa has to offer. Bikes ‘n Wines caters for all ages and fitness levels, offering personalised tours as well as adventures for groups and corporates.
