MTB Table Mountain - Constantia Tour

Table Mountain is a tourist playground par excellence; a network of gravel roads traverse the steep slopes of the mountain a combination of jeep track and some fun sections of smooth flowing single track.

Table Mountain staged the prologue of the famous Cape Epic 2009, 2015, 2018 edition.

The mountain bike ride start from Table Mountain lower cable car station and goes around the east side of Table Mountain, nothing too challenging but being a mountain biker will most definitely help you relax and enjoy the ride.

The surface changes from hard compacted clay to loose and wood chips, be prepared for riding on slippery surface especially on a rainy day, don't get too grabby with your front brake. The trail winds through indigenous vegetation known as Fynbos following the upper jeep track path through Kirstenbosch as well as Newlands forest before arriving at kilometers 20 half way through our MTB ride at Constantia for a coffee pause.. Our way back will be using a different MTB route riding on the lower section of the mountain and exclusive surburb of Cape Town, Bishopscourt and Kirstenbosch.

The final stretch home is all on jeep tracks and it is where most of our climbing is done, keep some matches for the end otherwise your legs may be protesting!

There is nothing flat on Table Mountain..Perfect for a good work-out where fitness and skill levels are required.
