Cycle Tour 364 – Ride the Cape Peninsula
Let's rate this listing!

Overview

Cycle Tour 364 is chosen by Cape Cycle Routes – an initiative of the Western Cape Government. The sections of this epic route are taken by the iconic Cape Town Cycle Tour which is the largest timed cycle race held in Cape Town every March.

Except for the racing day, Cycle Tour 364 is accessible all year round. The route includes 123km of roads circling the Cape Town’s peninsula. Starting from the historic V&A Waterfront, the route heads to Cape Point via the southern section of the Table Mountain National Park.

Similar to A town with an ocean view, Cycle Tour 364 also features some of the best views of Cape Town’s mountains and ocean. On this ride, you’re going to find many spots to stop and experience the life of Cape Town such as the local markets, seaside villages, and historic sights.

This ride can be completed within a day. However, if you are not used to long cycling, you can break it into small rides and complete the whole route within 2 or 3 days. There are many options for bike-friendly places to eat, stay and even camp, so no worries.

Terrain

The terrain of the ride is pretty challenging. You’re expected to climb a lot. The most challenging climb is probably the Chapman’s Peak Drive. Though you’re going to conquer a long and sharp ascent, the views are absolutely fantastic.

Access

The ride starts from the V&A Waterfront.

Food and drink

You can find plenty of eateries on the ride. Hout Bay offers bicycle-friendly cafes together with local markets, while Noordhoek is the perfect place to stop for lunch break. You may want to visit the bike-friendly The Village Roast at Noordhoek Farm Village. You can find another bike-friendly business -Village Hub - in Scarborough for a snack.
