In this blog post, we introduce you to Casa Cerveza Mountain Bike Tours.
Tell us about Casa Cerveza Mountain Bike Tours?
We offer mountain bike tours available for individuals and groups. They are guided by local riders who form part of the Fairtree Racing Team. These accomplished and highly skilled riders have all completed the mighty Cape Epic numerous times! Our riders are also trained and accredited MTB adventure guides by the Western Cape Government.
What does a tour entail?
The tours take riders on many of the beautiful trails that Stellenbosch has to offer. Riders can select routes that fit in with their technical skill, and the groups and individuals determine the distance and climbing.
Riders can settle in for breakfast, lunch or dinner after their ride at our unique beer house and bistro, Casa Cerveza, and enjoy a variety of tasty beverages from our menu. We also have healthy smoothies and vegetarian meals for those riders that prefer to avoid our great beer on tap and wine!
What makes Casa Cerveza mountain bike tours unique?
- We take riders on 80% single track rides with the best views and trails in Stellies.
- We never get into a car! All rides start and end at Casa.
- Our guides are from the local community of Kayamandi. Being accredited as adventure guides is not an easy thing. These are gifted riders that give guests a special adventure that will not be forgotten!
What do visitors gain on choosing a tour with Casa Cerveza?
Visitors can support local trained, accredited community riders and get to ride some of the finest trails in Stellenbosch and its surrounds.
What’s your favourite part of showing visitors Stellenbosch in this way?
On a bike, people get to have a completely different perspective of nature and the trails. In a car, the views flash past but, on a bike, you become part of those views.
What makes Stellenbosch special?
Our trails are some of the finest, and you can enter them straight from town. There is no need to drive anywhere, and this accessibility makes them really special.
Where’s your favourite ‘hidden spot’ or thing to do in Stellenbosch?
Banhoek Valley is the hidden gem of Stellenbosch trails, and we love taking clients there.
Tell us about your perfect day in Stellenbosch?
