We have great ROAD and Mountain bikes to hire for this, along with a support vehicle/driver for comfort and safety if required. We cover the Peninsula, Wine Lands and West Coast daily and the famous Garden Route can be ridden on one of our longer multi day ROAD excursions. Daily hikes are also available on the popular Table Mountain, Lion's Head and Devil's Peak routes.

Mark planed 3 days cycling for me with him as guide. The weather wasn’t perfect due to strong winds but he picked a great set of routes, two road and one MTB. We rode most of the world famous Argos Cycle on day one but missed out Chapman peak as the road was closed due to the wind. Day two was an out and back ride along Clarence Drive. Day three was a ride round Table Mountain and Lions Head with great views over Cape Town city and Harbour, this done on the MTB. We then swapped back to the road bikes and cycled up to Chapmans Peak. Good bikes, great service and Mark is great company on and off the bike. Mark is also an official tour guide and very knowledgeable of the area and SA in general. I will be back for the Argos in 2021.

We were looking for a bike rental to go to Cape Point rather spontaneously, and lucky for us Mark was very responsive and prepared two excellent road bikes for the next morning. He then gave us advice, a map, and off we went. That day it was very windy, so if you plan the same trip and the forecast says its going to be windy, prepare yourself for some serious effort; but that's not Mark's fault. :) I can highly recommend Cycle the Cape!

Once I realised how expensive it was going to be to take my own bike to SA I made some speculative enquiries and Cycle the Cape were able to offer me a hybrid bike for two weeks at a very good price (and at fairly short notice). I had all kinds of questions and Mark was really helpful, prompt and reassuring with his replies.

As agreed, I collected the bike from Caledonian Cycles in Muizenberg, where the staff were great. In particular they were very patient and took time to adjust things on the bike for me and get me sorted out with other bits of kit that I might need for a two week solo tour.

Initially i thought I wanted a road bike, but the mtb I actually hired was exactly what was needed. I had a fantastic couple of weeks, with absolutely zero problems with the bike (not even a puncture), so my thanks to Mark and everyone at Caledonian for making this happen.

We did an 8 day road cycling tour with Mark through the wine lands and cape peninsula. Outstanding scenery, knowledgeable guide, beautiful high end boutique accommodations, and just a really good mix of time in the bike with time to do other things.

Mark and our driver Brian are a great team. The bikes we used were high end and well tuned, and Mark made adjustments along the way to ensure we had bikes that fit us well. The itinerary covered so many areas and ticked a lot of boxes for scenery, wildlife, wine tours, gastronomy, etc.

Great way to see the Cape… so much better than out the window of a car.

Mark and his driver, Brian, were more amazing than words can describe. Mark accommodated various bicycle skill levels and provided wonderful road and mountain bikes as needed. He knows the roads as a local rider and knows when and where to avoid annoying cycling hazards. He took us on the most scenic 10 days of riding of our lives and we will be grateful forever. His company is highly recommended to anyone of any skill level needing a cycling guide in South Africa,

I was so lucky to have the opportunity to cycle with Mark! It was my last few days in Cape Town and Mark was able to make a last minute reservation on a Saturday -- it was the highlight of my three months in the cape. He gave me an ultimate tour, I couldn't stop smiling the whole time I was on my bike. It was honestly the best. He let me borrow a helmet and shoes so I could clip. I highly recommend you don't miss out on this opportunity.

Mark and Brian were top notch hosts on our 8 day cycling tour of wine country. They knew all of the great spots and tailored the rides to our needs and the happenstance of the weather. Mark is a very knowledgeable guide who knows the area (and his wine) very well- highly recommend!

My husband and I just completed a 10 day ebike tour with Mark and his driver Brian. They are a great team! All of our rides were well thought out and when needed due to weather Mark quickly came up with an alternative route. I highly recommend this tour as it’s an exceptional way to see South Africa and Mark’s knowledge of the history of the area is amazing! He knows so much! We had exceptional accommodations, especially in Franshhoek and Montague and were never disappointed with dining options. The only draw back for us were the e-bikes. Not the greatest but that is due to availability in SA and not on Mark 😊

My folks live nearby, the whole family are into cycling so I rented a bike when I went out for a visit recently to accompany dad on some of his argus training rides. Very decent frame, mixed ultegra groupset, well set up. Was able to get a quarter-turn mount and a helmet as well so all in all a very satisfactory service.

For my training during my holidays ( 19 days) Mark provided me an excellent road bike with an alu frame. It was really excellent and appropiate for the street conditions in this area. No carbon frame needed for an hobby athlete like me.

He delivered the bike direct to my place at the settled date and explained me all important details. Provided me also a wheel pump.

The highlight for me: the bike was correct set up to my size. Really a great service from Mark. Thank you Mark and I'll rent a bike from you again next time for sure.

For me: Best place and service provider to rent a bike in this area.
