Join us on the first leg of our weekend road bike series. These 2-day weekend trips provide the Perfect pre- Coronation Double Century (CDC) training.

Day 1 – Somerset West to Hermanus – 102.3km/ 849m ascent

Early morning collection from a central meeting place in the city and transfer to Somerset West (or meet us at the start point at Somerset Mall). From here we ride to Gordon’s Bay and along the famed Clarence Drive following the coastline through Rooi Els, Bettys Bay and Kleinmond to our destination in Hermanus. We spend the night close to the ocean with the afternoon at leisure – take a nap, have a massage, a swim, a stroll along the clifftop paths or indulge in some retail therapy at the many stalls and shops. We enjoy dinner out together at one of the local restaurants.

Day 2 – Hermanus to Greyton – 75km/ 1119 m ascent

After a hearty breakfast we head out through the Hemel en Aarde Valley towards Caledon. The first 10km are flat and fast and then it’s a series of climbs until we reach the final ascent up Shaw’s Pass at approx. 50km. Thereafter it’s predominantly down and flat and we hope for a tail wind into Greyton. We enjoy lunch at a local restaurant, then transfer back to Cape Town with drop off in Somerset West for self-drives.
