Depending on your needs, and heat of the day, we hit the road (latest) by 09:00, aiming to take one break, and end the ride around 13:00. To ensure we are on the 'same page' before we hit the road, once all texting, emailing, and bookings are done, we try meet 30 minutes before our start, to ensure that we can fully meet your expectations. Things we chat about: 1. If you need to take a break from riding, be ready to order transport using your mobile phone, for a service such as Uber 2. How we deal with (un)expected issues, out of the road, such as delays due to crashes, puncture, and other matters 3. Destinations that cater for all dietary needs 4. Whether we should include wine on our diets :) or garagiste / craft beer 5. Etc
I have been riding for 40+ years. My 'day job' is to manage tech teams for our global IoT businesses. Our pre-planned annual Tour de Boland offer the vastness of Africa, fertile wine regions and desert wilderness, wonderful views, real mountains and picturesque villages, monumental rocky landscapes, lovely high valleys and a warm team that has only one thing in mind: an unforgettable time on the bike. Our ad hoc and 'lastminute' Day Trips are all closely located to Stellenbosch, and could include some gravel choices too. High-end rental bikes are available with approx one week's notice.
Tube and multi-tool for road-side repairs
We can go anywhere you like, for as many days and nights, or just one day, or morning, or even a short jaunt around Stellenbosch. Bring your own bike, or we'll arrange one. We can meet anywhere, and go any distance, with a few days' advance booking. Our typical riding terrain is tar (asphalt) but, depending on your bike choice, we do gravel and dirt tracks too. Familiar places: Franschhoek, Paarl, Somerset West, Strand, Gordon's Bay, Rooi-Els
最多可有10位年满15周岁的参与者参加。 It will be great if we have a good idea of your fitness / comfort levels before we meet up. Naturally, knowing about some of your favourite wines and foodie needs will also be great.
Our riding pace and time in the saddle is determined by you, the guest. If we are a bigger group, we also pair up guests of equal ability, and provide each such group with a guide.
