Gravel riding tours are a great way to see and experience some of the most beautiful parts of our country and that is why Cape Cycle Routes exists! Their “Cederberg Circuit” is a 247km long route that takes in 3500m of elevation gain. The ride begins in Citrusdal and heads north towards Clanwilliam Dam where it will turn back South East into the heart of the Cederberg mountains, passing through epic landscapes on its way back around to Citrusdal.
Our Cederberg Circuit Video will be premiering at 5:30pm on Sunday 4 December
Situated just over 2 hours drive north of the City of Cape Town, it is within easy reach for a weekend mission and packed with spectacular scenery, quaint towns, hiking trails, interesting people, heritage sites, and of course… gravel roads!
