In theory there is but no cycling is allowed on Table Mountain so you would need to break the rules if you wanted to go. There is a jeep track that leads from Constantia Nek - about 25 minutes from the city - to the top of the Back Table of Table Mountain. It is part dirt track and some concrete nearer the top. I have only once seen anyone cycle on the top section but as I said it is prohibited by Table Mountain National Park.

You may mountain bike on the lower slopes of Devils Peak and above the city on the lower slopes of Table Mountain below the level of Tafelberg Road.
