Click here to find out more about the Arniston Spa Hotel.
Arniston Hotel - just 200km drive from Cape Town - is our starting point. As you arrive, the bikes are ready and waiting with your personalised name boards already fitted. We're on the beach for most of the trip, running inland in the beginning until we get to the De Mond Nature reserve. This is our lunch stop. We cross at the mouth using their 1.5km stretch of wooden boardwalk, this avoids any feet getting wet.
From here our day is halfway complete, it's another 20kms of beach riding till we make it to the famous town of Struisbaai. Heading into town for some sandy single track riding through the sleepy holiday town, we make our way to the Cape Agulhas lighthouse, where you can stand and be blown away by the beauty of the Southernmost tip of Africa.
Once your photos have been taken it’s a quick trip back down the road to the accommodation for the evening. Our choice of accommodation depends on the group size, all options will be fully kitted to ensure you a comfortable night stay after a long day on the beach. The ocean is within walking/ fat biking distance, your bags will be delivered to your room and the beers will always be cold.
Distance for the day - 40km
As we make our way back to the beautiful Arniston Hotel, we might be lucky and enjoy a pleasant tailwind for the trip home. A later start for those wanting to sleep in and perhaps catch an early swim in the warm Indian ocean, all this can be arranged. Prior to departure breakfast shall be served and your bags placed in the luggage truck. Lunch is served on the banks of the De Mond river again. We take a different entry to Arniston for our journey home, one which brings you past Waenhuiskrans Caves, a historical site to see. For those wishing for more of a workout, we can continue past Arniston and do an extra 15km circular loop back through some sandy single track as part of the Overberg, Cape Nature reserve.
Distance for the day - 37km or 52km
