Bikes

Brand new high-quality hybrid bikes (24 gears) are available. The bicycle you are going to use is a hybrid bicycle, which is a cross type of bicycle that combines certain features of mountain bikes and those of road / racing bikes. Your bike is equipped with multi-speed gearing, in a ratio that is conducive for the type of riding you will be doing.

The hybrid bikes come with upright steering and no drop handlebars. These bicycles are very good for their purpose and are maintained by professional mechanics. If you treat your bicycle well, it will operate perfectly for you. If you treat your bicycle poorly, you may not have an equally enjoyable experience.

Fitness

This trip is not a marathon event and is not a traditional group tour, but a small group or individual tour with people who share your interest in doing something special with their holiday! The tour is not for advanced bikers or walkers and you don’t need to be mega fit. However, it is imperative on a cycling tour that one can manage a bicycle on main roads with little traffic and has the ability to ride a bicycle confidently and responsibly.

Included excursions

You will have three visits at local wine estates.
