Elevation Profile

Day 1 – Gordon’s Bay to Greyton – 150km / 1820m ascent

Early morning collection from a central meeting place in the city and transfer to Gordon’s Bay (or meet us at a pre-determined point en route along the N2 or at the start point). From here we ride along the famed Clarence Drive following the coastline through Rooi Els, Bettys Bay and Kleinmond to Hermanus, where we turn left and follow the Hemel en Aarde Valley along a series to rollers to Caledon then more downhill and flatter to Greyton. We spend the night in this sleepy country town, where the horses roam the streets and artsy shops abound…

Day 2 – Greyton to Stellenbosch – 131km/ 1784m ascent

We leave Greyton on the same road and at 36 km turn onto the N2 which has a wide shoulder and is quite ride-able to the turn-off just past Dassiesfontein farmstall. The Theewaterskloof dam is visible from the top of the long pull from the turn-off and then we round the dam and head for the iconic Franschhoek Pass which is always a treat. After flying over the other side, we cruise through the town of Franschhoek, turning left towards the village of Pniel at 114km and making for our final challenge in the form of Helshoogte Pass (by now this is merely a pimple, especially for those who have completed the full series). We end off with showers and lunch, before transferring back to Cape Town (self-drives will need to be collected from here or dropped off at a pre-determined location along the N2 en route to CT).
