About Us

Cape Escape tours Cape Town was founded in 1995 our Mountain biking tours activity a decade later, we are based in Cape Town at the foot of the iconic Table Mountain.

My name is Patrick I ride as well as I run our office, when you hop on the phone you will be speaking with me I lives and breathes mountain biking.

When I first started mountain biking, the luxury of picking the ideal bike for the conditions or your riding style didn't exist. There was one kind of bike, by today's standards the brakes were terrible, the frames were big and heavy that was over not so long ago! It's almost iconic that since the days of one bike for all, the sport has seperated to advance with far more options. Are you going for an all day XC ride or a quick lung burner?

With its plethora of tracks and varied terrain, the Western Cape region lends itself to mountain biking. We at Cape Escape mountain biking tours have selected our different mountain biking trails within the province. Quiet, remote dirt roads or tight, twisting single tracks begging to be explored by bike; this is how you can engage in a genuine experience of South Africa. From the iconic Table Mountain, fynbos slopes, windswept beaches beyond the horizon to where the hinterlands awaits, wide-sky spaces and arid plains of the Karoo, with classic mountain passes grinding into the Swartberg ranges. Fun, respect for the planet and its people, enthusiasm and integrity are some of our ethics.

We are passionate about mountain biking as well as friendly and knowledgeable and may teach you a few things you never knew about!

Enjoy, gear up and ride on, The Cape awaits.
