Itinerary Introduction

We depart from your hotel or guest house in the city centre at 09h00. We’ll take a stunning ride down the N2 motorway towards Somerset West, Strand and Gordons Bay. From there we hop onto Clarence Drive, rated as the most scenic marine drive in the world and you will see why it has earned this rating. We will stop for a photo shoot or two along this amazing route. Next, we’ll stop at the Drummond Arms in Rooi Els for a drink or two or a cup of coffee. We then ride via Betty’s Bay to Kleinmond, a stunning little seaside village with white beaches and lagoons for a photo stop and a chance to stretch the legs. We ride further to Hermanus, rated as the best land based whale watching site in the world, and stop for there for lunch. If we’re lucky and it’s within season (July to November), we’ll get to see the whales frolicking in Walker Bay. From Hermanus we begin our return trip via Botrivier, over the HouwHoek pass, stopping at the historic HouwHoek Inn for an afternoon drink or six. We then ride past Grabouw, South Africa’s apple capitol, stopping on top of Sir Lowry’s Pass for a photo shoot that will take your breath away as the views are simply stunning. We then start our final leg of the tour as we travel down along the N2 back towards Cape Town and to your hotel or guest house where we will unfortunately will have to part our separate ways.

About the author

I live and play in the most beautiful city in the world, Cape Town. I quit my corporate job in 2009, became a tour guide and started my business, Cape Town Trike Tours. I have been doing these tours for 14 years now and I have enjoyed every minute of it. One of my great passions has always been motorcycles and trikes so what better way to earn a living than incorporating my passions in what I do every day and being able to share that passion and my city with my guests just makes my "job" so much more satisfying. I offer my tours on a state of the art German built Boom trike...the only one of its kind in South Africa. I am very proud to be the only person in Cape Town offering trike tours. If you are looking for a unique and fun way to explore Cape Town, I'm the guy you want to come to. I look forward to meeting you and providing you with an experience that will want you coming back for more.
