Motorcycle and motorbike nature Trails from Cape Town
MOTORCYCLE TRAILS AND TOURS
Down roads less travelled, through forest plantations, farms, gravel roads, high mountain routes with spectacular views, we provide unique & exclusive trails to suit easy or technical riding. The motorcycles tours take place on routes that differ from most in as much as I keep off tar roads with the only exception of crossing a few roads. I am a route planner for a famous international mountain bike race, with permission to access private & state land and some Cape nature reserves. As a conservationist and guide I show you areas of the Western Cape few have ever seen. The motorcycle tours take you through some unusual and spectacular scenery much of which is the best & most awesome landscape on earth. The motorcycle tours follow routes which are safe, with minimal usage from other vehicles.
Motorcycle Trail: 1 Day

We start at 09h00 at Nature House, Elgin Grabouw Country Club in Grabouw. Nature House, Elgin Grabouw Country Club is ‘roughly 1 hour from Cape Town’. After a briefing and map discussion we set off to circumnavigate the mountain ranges in the area passing various habitats and up to 1050 m. Your tour takes you through farms and rare mountain Fynbos areas on jeep tracks. We can take you on easy or technical route options, depending on what you feel comfortable with. A planned day tour includes an experienced guide to show the way and take care of riders, a packed picnic lunch, coffee & refreshments en route.

The green mountain eco route is quite unique and boasts some of the rarest plants in the Cape floral kingdom. The route ravels through four passes and climate zones offering an ideal photographic opportunity. This is a tour of a lifetime to view sights rarely seen by most. You will have the opportunity to ride though some wine farms in the valley and taste en route, arriving early evening at our guest accommodation. Shower and enjoy a traditional meal of the area around a camp fire. You will be well looked after by your accompanying guide who will set up, tell stories and generally look after your needs, including a welcome beer or bottle of excellent local wine.
Day 2 starts around 09h00, after a hearty breakfast. Mount up and ride the highlands route - high mountain jeep tracks with sea views & spectacular Cape scenery. The trail took some two years in planning to give you a unique world class ride. You are taken across rivers, through forests and flower fields. This is truly an unforgettable experience. You will arrive back at Nature House, Elgin Grabouw Country Club around 16h30 on day two.
Transfers: from Cape Town Airport or city can be arranged, with max four riders per tour.

* SPECIAL - stay an extra night for only R160 pp more (self-catered)
We have many years of multi terrain riding behind us. We have chosen to use Suzuki 250cc’s and the DR 200cc imported direct from Japan. These choices were made for the following reasons:
When riding variable terrain, semi-fit riders become quite tired, especially on the longer three day and four day trails. On large unwieldy machines it increases the sore arms, sore shoulders feeling, been there done that, and mistakes are made most often when tired. Need we say more?
The weight of the machine plays a major role with correction technique on more technical sections. The bikes we use weigh in at around 125 -130 kg with fuel and are easily manageable. Comfort is not usually well catered for on small machines so I have special air seats mounted on the bikes for riders, affording much comfort especially for the longer trails. (Problem solved)
The bikes may not sound powerful yet they are six speed overhead cams with polished valves providing excellent torque at slow speeds, smooth throttle, quiet running and are vibration free. Many riders have traveled down through Africa with this machine; they are capable of up 130 km per hour, should it be necessary. Most of the tours I take are scenic tours not endurance races.
Most bike riders enjoy these bikes immensely as they are safe, reliable, and great fun. I use trail tyres that are eco friendly at pressures that give safe grip on the technical sections. These machines are remarkably capable for the type of tours I run. We carry a GPS, radio comms for each rider, a top box and a small tank bag for essentials.
One day trail in Red and Two day trail in Blue.
