South Africa’s Garden Route offers unlimited opportunities for adventure. Mountain biking legend Tony Cook (Two time finisher of the Absa Cape Epic and 11 time finisher of the Cape Argus), has years of experience on the best mountain biking trails in this stunning region.
If you love cycling and have always wanted to come to South Africa – we’ll take you for a ride on the wild side!
All our tours depart from a little town in the heart of the Garden Route called Knysna (pronounced nize-na). This stunning town has been voted South Africa’s “Favourite town of the Year” for two consecutive years and tourists from all over the globe visit Knysna and are always impressed with its beauty.
The entire town surrounds a large salt-water estuary called the Knysna Lagoon – so besides the nitty-gritty of “sleep when you’re dead” mountain biking fun, you can also enjoy numerous recreational activities, such as boating, fishing, swimming and loads of adventuring!
