Sand Dunes Trail

Epic ride on the Sand Dunes down to the beach

R500 per person  (2-3 Hours) This is the ultimate ride from near Grootbos nature reserve down the mountain to the top of the Sand Dunes. The trail to the dunes is special, running on a narrow sandy horse trail through the Fynbos. When reaching the dunes we will make our way up and across to reach a fantastic downhill section where we will pick up speed before reaching the top of our first vertical dune face. After a breifing on how to ride down the dune we down the face but for those just wanting an easy ride you can go around the side where it is an easy slope. The dune face may feel impossible and dangerous to do but the ride is infact very controlled and the sand will slow the bike down. What your mind tells you is impossible will infact be very enjoyable and easy. I will be at the bottom of the dunes videoing your challenges so remember to smile :-)   I will also teach you how to do slalom like a skiier on a snow ski slope. This is excellent fun on a bike and not too difficult to achieve. After the dunes we will pick up a 4x4 trail down to the beach. From there we will head back up to the car park but for those who are already tired I can bring the 4x4 down to the rocks so you do not have to ride up :-)

DeKelders - Hermanus Beach Trail

(20Km) Beautiful ride from De Kelders to Hermanus

R650 per person (2-4 hours) Join us on an epic ride from De Kelders to Hermanus on a 20k ride along the beach. If you have a car we will meet in De Kelders then set off towards the beach along the best path for Whale watching n the world! (July-December) this is not a race so we will take our time and enjoy the scenery to the beach. Once at the beach we will enter the Walker Bay reserve then head down the 4x4 trail and along the cliff edges to the huge stretch of Die Plaat beach running from De Kelders to Hermanus. Once we are on the large stretch of beach the sand is normally firm along the waterline so riding is relatively easy. To ride on open beach for kilometres is wonderful, next to the waves rolling in and hopefully spotting the odd seal and spotting rare African Oyster Catchers. This is an eco-trip so at all times we will observe the nature from a comfortable distance and will not cause any stress on the environment or animals we come across. We will stop along the way at the stunning cave built into a rock by a local man who stayed there for up to a year! (Sopiesklip). If you have enough energy we will head inland at Sopiesklip and ride along the Estuary back to Grotto Beach (Additional 4-5km on rugged terrain). To end we will reach Grotto beach and stop for refreshments before we load up the bikes on our trailer and drive back to De Kelders. Should you not have a car then we can collect and drop you off from your accommodation for free from Hermanus or De Kelders.
