Cycle Tours

Our cycle safaris

The cycling distances vary as indicated on each itinerary page. An experienced escort accompanies the group who is familiar with the terrain and who works with the driver of the support vehicle which follows or is in close range of the group throughout the rides.

Cycle Safari tours are rated Easy, Moderate and Challenging.

The degree of difficulty on each ride depends on the terrain, distance and number and grade of climbs. Very often, especially on multi-day tours there is a combination of the degrees of difficulty. There is limited space for riders who wish to board the support vehicle for a short distance. We recommend choosing a tour that fits your capability.

1

Easy Ride

Is for people who do not bicycle regularly in their life, but do enjoy it. A ride that is relaxing. Easy riders cycle the equivalent of 4-8 up to 30 kms each day depending on the terrain. These rides are mostly flat with some hilly terrain. Steep ascents are rarely encountered.

2

Moderate Ride

Is for people who bike regularly, perhaps daily, although not necessarily. They are reasonably fit and regard the bicycle as a primary means to satisfy their frequent outdoor activity. Moderate riders can cycle the equivalent of 4-8 hours and between 30 to 65 kms in a day, if not more, depending on the terrain. Moderate riders are not afraid of many moderate ascents, or even a few steep ones.

3

Challenging Ride

Is for people who worship the bicycle. Challenging riders enjoy all ascents and are capable of steep ones. They cycle the equivalent of 6-8 hours a day and cover between 65 and 100 kilometres a day or more depending on the terrain.
