Cycle the trails of the Constantiaberg Mountains with stunning views across the Southern Suburbs to The Hottentots Holland Mountains and beyond. We cool off afterwards with drinks and snacks in the shade of the forest - probably the Peninsula’s finest off-road trail and a MUST for mountain biking enthusiasts. Includes some excellent single track – suitable for more experienced riders.
Ask any off -road cyclists in the Western Cape for the best mountain biking routes - Tokai Forest will surely be one of the answers. There are many route options for both novice and expert mountain bikers - some easy gravel road stuff to some serious downhill with hairpin bends and serious swithchbacks.
There are magnificent pine, gum and eucalyptus trees in the forest that provide welcome shade during the hot summer months. There are terrific views of the Constantia Vineyards and Table Mountain. Meeting point is usually the Tokai Arboretum. From here there is a grueling uphill gravel stretch to get started and most riders stick to the gravel road to at least 4 or 5 of the contour roads before branching off to the single or duel track routes. Your experienced cycle guide will take you on a zig zag path up through the forest and after a rest near the top, there are some exciting downhill options and technical riding before the final cruise "home".
