What could of been a fantastic trip turned out to be a disaster, with bad organisation from the start, late leaving, an expectation to cycle through the vineries turned out to be mainly on the main roads, a promise to visit three vineries of which one was closed, as Bike and Saddle had not checked bank holiday openings, a platter...

An amazing ride along the most scenic route I've ever visited. Our guide Skeezo was an awesome guy, just hanging out with him was worth the fee :) The bike was a Giant race hybrid that did the job, though a proper roadbike would have suited me more, personally. We ended the tour by visiting the penguins at Boulder Beach.... More

We are very happy to have used B&S services for our day outing to the Winelands. They proved to be quite flexible by arranging a bike tour to the wineries that interested us (not their standard tour). The tour itself was expertly delivered by Emilie and Mike. They combined professionalism and friendliness, which made for a perfect day for our... More

A perfect day and way to see the wine country. Bike & Saddle happily put together a wonderful custom day trip for our family of 4 based on our requests. We spent a fun morning cycling around the Franschhoek valley with a stop at one winery for a morning tasting and snack, and a 2nd for lunch. They chose a... More

5 out of 5 for great service, a great ride, and great company! The team assessed us well and chose the perfect route for our level of fitness and desire to see more of the countryside. We appreciated their knowledge of the area and its history, as well as their patience when one of us went a bit slower. The... More

We had an amazing sunset tour with Mike and Emile. It was just them and us, so even though I was a little nervous riding a bike through a major city, they made me feel totally comfortable. It was super fun, got to see the whole city in a new way. We made a caffeine pit stop mid-way and ended... More

Had a great day cycling with Mike and Hardy. They took me from Cape Town to Chapmans Peak. Lots of great information and the most amazing scenery I have ever seen. Highly recommend a day out with these guys if you like a cycle and like meeting great people

Thank you for a great review! Mike & Hardy must have the best job in the world! And perhaps the easiest too! Where nature is showing off some of her best robes, the chaperones can get away with being somewhat dull too! Of course, if they shine too...then it's a memorable experience! We're very happy you enjoyed the experience -... More

We just returned from our safari camps in Namibia and Botswana and often told our fellow campers about our tour on bike of Khayelitsha. In many respects, I learned more from the bike tour than all the game rides at the camps! I recommend it to anyone who wants to learn more about Cape Town. Make sure to sample the... More

I accidentally posted this in the wrong city: AWESOME day biking. Was a real ride and not watered down - perfect! (Did the fairest cape trip.) Seems like they will tailor it to what you want to do/ability level. I'm sorry I went on a wine country biking trip with a different company rather than these guys!!
