This bicycle tour, presented by Adventure Shop in Stellenbosch, combines the beautiful scenery and sites of Historic Stellenbosch with some excellent wine pairings and some healthy outdoor exercise.  

The tour starts at 09:00 at the Adventure Shop (located at Black Horse Centre, Corner of Dorp and Mark Street) where each rider will collect a bike and helmet to suit their size. Your guide will carry saddle panniers for those who would like to buy wine en route. You will then visit interesting historic sites of Stellenbosch Town, into the scenic Jonkershoek Valley where the mountains form part of a UNESCO World heritage site. This will be followed by a circular route taking you further into the Jonkershoek Valley where you can enjoy fantastic views of the surrounding mountains. 

On the way out of the valley, you will stop at Lanzerac Wine Estate which sports beautiful grounds and historic Cape Dutch architecture. Here you can enjoy a wine and chocolate tasting that will make your taste buds tingle. After the tasting you will head back into Stellenbosch Town via the famous Stellenbosch University before ending the tour again at Adventure Shop offices. There are some variations on this guided bike tour for varying levels of difficulty, so the tour can be tailored to suit your cycling ability. 

Duration of Tour: 4-5 hours
