We start at CYCLING FRIENDS Shop. Following along the Atlantic coast, we ride through the famous resort Camps Bay. Further towards Llandudno we will see below, the hotel 12 Apostles and the tales of the Antipolis wreck. The Antipolis is a Greek oil tanker, which ran aground on the rocks near Victoria Road in Oudekraal. It has been lying off the coast of South Africa for 45 years and was washed ashore in January 2022 by considerable ocean waves.

After a descent we pass through the fishing village of Hout Bay. Hout Bay is also known for its harbour market. With great views of the beach of Hout Bay and the breath-taking view into the bay of Hout Bay we’lll reach Chapman’s Peak after about 4km. After a break we’ll enjoy an amazing downhill ride to Noordhoek. In Noordhoek we’lll have the opportunity to enjoy a cappuccino or cold drink. After our break we’ll continue towards Kommetjie from where we’ll ride uphill along the coast. Whether you lose your breath during the climb or during the breath-taking view is up to you.

From now on we’ll ride on easy undulating roads until we reach the entrance gate to the Cape of Good Hope. We leave this gate on the right and continue to Simons Town. Depending on the season, we can stop there and admire the charming penguins on the beach of Simons Town.

After a short rest, we make our way via False Bay towards Chapman’s Peak, then directly back to Cape Town and the CYCLING FRIENDS Shop
