I had a spare day in my schedule and wanted to take a bike tour, a quick search found me Gideon’s rides. The one I chose was the Peninsula Explorer. 100km of quiet roads that snake you UP and OVER the hills here. Its not for the climbing adverse, however its steady. It’s not a race the descents are amazing. The views across the bay were stunning and it felt that any minute a fluke or fin would break the surface. This review doesn’t do Gideon or the route justice. It was epic, beautifully hard with a guide who was good company. When I return I am riding with Gideon again.
Doing this bike tour was one of the highlights of my staying in Cape Town. Amazing scenery, nice climbs and also you can visit some touristic spot like the penguings at boulder beach. The tour guide (Gideon) was amazing! Before the tour he helped me out in renting the bike and he was really flexible in building a route based on my preferences. During the ride he showed me amazing places, telling me also a bit of the history of some spots. Strongly recommend and since he offers also MTB tours, next time in Cape Town I’ll definitely do an offroad tour!
It was quite exhausting to climb the long climb to the Cape of Good Hope, but the impression of the gradient landscape is much more intense than from the car window! And we could have switched to the car at any time! Many thanks to Meike, our super guide!
Very nice guide, great landscape. Bicycles were not ideal. The saddle has always slid deeper. The drinking water was actually inedible, heavily chlorinated which is why I also attract a star.
We had a wonderful day. David is extremely knowledgeable and couldn't have been more accommodating . Everything was perfect.
