Ok, so we had booked this cycle tour and it was absolutely pooring with rain that morning, in Stellenbosch. But there they were, good humoured South-Africans Mike, Jaco and Skeeto from Bike and Saddles, in the hall of our hotel, with a great alternative plan of attack: do the wine tour anyway, but comfortably in their van.

A tour with Bike & Saddle is highly recommendable. Mike, the super-friendly guide, knows lots of places with breathtaking views and routes for every liking. The tour is well organized but they let you decide, which way you want to go in the mountains so everyone can make the most of it. It's such an amazing experience to enjyoy the... More

I was in Cape Town in May 2015, and had a wonderful experience with the guys from Bike and Saddle team, who were both friendly and knowledgable in showing me around various parts of the city. The tours are very well organized and the sights are breathtaking. If you are in town and have a few hours or a day,... More

Visited Cape Town for the first time and did the 65 K Fitness Tour. The staff was outstanding ( Mike & Skeeza). The route was amazing and the Bike N Saddle team covered very detail prior to arriving, which made it a stress free and absolutely outstanding ride.
