If nature is not your thing and the wine farms are calling, get some exercise at the same time, get on a bike and join one of our Guided Mountain Bike Wine Tours. Join one of our leisurely Guided Mountain Bike Wine Tours to visit three superb wine farms of your choice in the Franschhoek area for wine-tasting, scrumptious pairings, beautiful views and scenic rides.
Routes are flexible and cater to your taste and requirements. A flat route or one with a bit of an incline are available. Please note this is a wine tour, with a bit of bike riding. It is not intended as a full day exercise event.
Pairings to choose from: * Wine and pizza * Wine and chocolates * Wine and braai * Wine and Caramels * Brandy and Truffles * Wine and biltong * Wine and Turkish delights * MCC bubbly and canapes
Tours start typically at 10:00am or 2:00pm and last from 3 to 4 hours. Wine farms close at 5pm.
We meet at the Franschhoek Adventure Centre in the main road of the village and get fitted for our bikes.
After a short safety briefing and discussion of the farms to be visited, we head off to our first farm. You are reminded that we ride on the left side of the road until we reach the bicycle track or a gravel shoulder.
We ride along the back streets of the village and through a vineyard with our gorgeous moutains welcoming you. We visit 3 wine farms with a short ride between each farm. At each venue you will be offered a variety of wines to choose from and the sommelier will be on hand to provide interesting information on the wines chosen.
Your guide will give you as brief history of the area and how the wine industry was started and will give you some interesting information about South African wines, culture and social life. A very friendly, casual tour which you are sure to enjoy.
After our 3rd farm we have a quick 10 minutes ride back into town.
