Road cycling

Cycling around Stellenbosch makes for most scenic cycling routes around South Africa, with views out across the lush vineyards of Stellenbosch. Various mountain ranges provide a scenic backdrop for cyclists as they take on the challenges of these routes.

Cycling options

We tailor your ride, your route, your camp around the riders’ ability and needs factoring in time and date, distance and terrain. We cater from individual to group ride providing guided rides and to ensure further safety a support car is available.


One of the most favourite cycling routes, from Stellenbosch to Franschoek over the Helshoogte pass. It offers a safe and scenic way to explore the area round Stellenbosch. The scenery along this route includes the Cape Winelands, Simonsberg, Jonkershoek, Drakenstein and Stellenbosch Berg Mountains that tower majestically above the green valley below.

Cape Town

Further afield another favourite route is invigorating Chapman's peak, one of South Africa most beautiful mountain passes along the slopes of the iconic Table mountain pass upmarket seaside suburbs of Clifton and Camps Bay, and a selection of postcard-perfect beaches.

2 Day cycle trip

3YO Training camps offers an amazing  cycling tour for you. Our guides will take you over incredible mountain pass routes to the small town of Grabouw.

In grabouw we will stay overnight at a bike hotel. A perfect place to share some bike stories with other cyclists. Unfortunately the ride to Grabouw and back home has not much of a shoulder. Thats why we prefer to start the rides early in the morning , while there is still little traffic. Our guides will make use of their local weather knowledge to avoid head winds as much as possible!

The next morning we will start our ride after a breakfast. the ride will be about 130 km and will bring you over the coastal roads with stunning views over the ocean
