You start the trip off by riding through the famous Cape Winelands of the Western Cape and then make your way north, along the backroads of the Cederberg Mountain, then east into the semi-desert areas of the Tankwa Karoo, where the real beauty of this trip lies: the single lane dirt roads, carving through the valleys, mountain passes, and open plains.

You travel over the Swartberg and spend some time in the Overberg, before making your way into town, along the famous Gordon's bay coastal road. The tour ends with a ride along the spectacular Cape Peninsula.
