Ride Description

Ride Description

Starting next to the iconic white sand beaches of Camps Bay, the road opens up to a perfectly smooth road with a large shoulder for safe cycling. With the 12 Apostle Peaks towering to your left and the chilly Atlantic ocean on your right we head out towards beautiful Hout Bay and onto one of the most beautiful passes in the world! Chapmans Peak drive is a smooth, snaking road clinging onto the cliffs with mind-blowing views into Hout Bay. Look out for whales and sharks in the ocean below you! We stop for a quick coffee at a cyclist friendly cafe before returning along the same route. The ride includes 4 climbs of about 3-6km each and gentle average gradients of approximately 4-6%
