Over the past 3 years we have been lucky enough to ride some of the Western Cape’s most stunning gravel routes and enjoyed the bounty of off-the-bike activities, accommodations, and dining delights along the way!

Having explored and discovered these magnificent routes and hidden treasures ourselves, and knowing what incredible life changing adventures they have been for us, we are excited to invite you along for the ride!

Having seen what is out there to experience in our beautiful country, we want to make the adventure as easily accessible for you as possible!
