>> FAQ About the Multi-Day Tours

How fit or experienced do I need to be?

The bike tour is three days long with each day covering 30-50km. You don't have to be super-fit as the pace is adapted to the riders' abilities, but you do need to be able to make the distances. We recommend that you do enough cycling training to feel confident that you'll be fit enough so that you'll enjoy your bike tour safely.

How difficult or technical are the routes?

The route is mainly along gravel roads and dirt tracks. It is not too difficult, but there are some hills!

What do I need to bring?

Recommended packing list

What do we provide for you?

We provide local tour guides who know the area well.
Accommodation in our Paardenberg Farm Cottages is included in the price, as are home-cooked meals made from our organic farm produce.

Do I need to bring my own bike?

It is preferable to have your own bike, but bike hire can be arranged for you. If we hire a bike for you, it is still better to bring your own helmet

Is there a support vehicle?

There will be a support vehicle available should you need assistance.

Can we customise the tour to suit our needs?

The bike tour has a standard set-up, but there is room for flexibilty. Country Bike Tours is a wonderful vehicle for corporate team-building and a tour can be arranged for your company.

Is airport transfer to Paardenberg Farm available?

Airport transfer can be arranged at an extra cost. The nearest airport is Cape Town International.

Can children come along on the tour?

We don't have a strict minimum age, but the child will need to be able to make the distances to join the tour.

Can members of our group stay in the cottages but not ride on the tour?

If some of the family/group members would like to stay in the farm cottages but not cycle, this can also be arranged. The price will be adjusted accordingly.

What about insurance?

You will need to arrange your own travel and medical insurance.
