Cycling in Stellenbosch

My friend and I are planning a trip to Franschhoek and Stellenbosch, and we were wondering whether we could rent bikes and ride between a few of the wineries. We did something similar in Mendoza, Argentina and really felt it was the way to see wine country. Is this done in this area, and if so, does anyone have suggestions regarding bike rental places and cycling routes? Thanks!

Hi

There are a number of cycle rental shops. Here are three, but there are more:-

stellenboschtourism.co.za/…

Some of the terrain is quite mountainous so you should plan your route.

Cycling from Cape Town to Stellenbosch....ouch my calves are aching at the prospect...let alone getting over the pass to Franschhoek...maybe get out some maps and have a look at the distance and hills involved. In the event that you are serious cyclists good luck. You can hire bikes at the Franschhoek Tourist bureau, but i don't know if they are serious touring machines..but Ok for a trundle around the village and surrounds
