SlowRiding Amathole Adventure


It’s the cycling experience you will never forget!

Imagine 3 days pedaling through the amazing landscapes of the Eastern Cape Amathole Region on a fully supported bike ride through the countryside. Overnight in warm beds in interesting places; enjoy good food, entertainment and a sensational atmosphere.

Starting in Hogsback the SlowRiding® Amathole Adventure will take you along country roads, past fields of flowers and on bridges over chuckling streams, through the indigenous forests where the rare Cape Parrots, Samango Monkeys and Knysna Loeries call as they play along the tree highways. Stay overnight at Old Thomas River Historical Village located in the 31000ha Conservancy. Enjoy a fun evening in the historical railway station pub and restaurant. Next day continue your country ride through the Kubusi Indigenous State Forest at the foot of Mount Thomas down to Gubu Dam and on to our next overnight stop at Cata – a traditional Xhosa cultural village that has become a thriving tourism destination. After a night at their hilltop tent village, where we will enjoy a spitbraai in their starlight lapa, we finish our tour riding past the magnificent Sandile Dam back up through the Indigenous Cloud Montane Forests to Hogsback Village. Meet good cycling company and make new friends.

And here’s the really good news – you ride your bike carrying just the bare essentials – your helmet, your camera, sunburn cream – and maybe your birding book! Enjoy attentive on-road support – our ride crew will organize your luggage transport; provide security, medical assistance, and any bike mechanical maintenance that you may need on the road.

Enjoy a rest at our organized refreshment stops en route, and you can even catch a lift on the sag wagon when your bike or your body needs a little TLC.

Beginners do it slower – and pro’s do it faster, and then the pro’s can go and play on the single track at our different destinations – there is something for every cyclist who wants to hit the open road under a wide sky…and feel safe and relaxed knowing that our team has got it aced.

Become a green tourist – find out about the history of the area – stay with local communities, and experience awesome tourism on our Amathole Adventure – it’s SlowRiding® and everyone can do it!

The SlowRiding® Amathole Adventure will be taking place from Saturday 27th April to Wednesday 1st May 2013.

Only 50 riders can take part in this amazing tour……so……Book early to avoid disappointment.
