In December, Sam Reynolds and Fabien Cousinié met in Cape Town with their enduro bikes with the goal to explore the trails in the area. What they didn’t realize is that 1 week wouldn’t be enough!

They found that Cape Town had a lot to offer. There are many trails center like Jonkershoek or Helderberg with fun single tracks and berms for days plus the more you climb, the more technical it gets. Lots of vineyards open their doors to mountain bikers and build trails around the vines.

They took a trip outside of Cape Town to go ride on a farm where the owner has been building trails since he was a kid. His trails are open to the public and accommodation can be found on site for a super cool gateway. They also had the chance to ride the private trails of Ike, a 13 years old rider.
For riders living close to town, they even have 2 trails in the city center! It’s super cool to see that people that owns land are open to the fact of building trails and sharing it to the public. The diversity of trails and the landscape make Cape Town definitely a sweet place to go on a bike trip!
