We set off from the hotel with an audience taking photos of us departing in our leathers and goggles on our superbly Leopard design bike and sidecar. Four wine tastings later, with... More

Hi there Thanks for taking the time to post a review of your sidecar experience. Glad you & your husband enjoyed the experience. The Cape tends to be fairly windy in summer, so I'm afraid it's an unavoidable part of the experience if you're out biking. We like to keep our sidecars as authentic and as close to their military...

A friend and I took a coastal tour with Cape Sidecar Adventures and it was a dream come true for me.
