Table Mountain is a tourist playground par excellence and staged the Cape Epic prologue many times over. A combination of gravel road and jeep track network traverse the steep slopes of Table Mountain with some fun sections of smooth flowing single track. Our MTB Table Mountain Constantia 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.
