Owner description: Cycling around Franschhoek is a fun way to explore the area, do some wine tastings have lunch at one of the many vineyards or just to get some exercise. There are different routes from beginner to experienced cycling in the area with absolutely amazing views. We also cater for the littler explorers from one year old and up so bring the family.

My family and I (3 children, 17, 14 & 9) booked a bike tour with Tayne to take us around Franschhoek to experience a few wineries and see the beautiful area. We were kitted out with bikes and water (and also had extra sun lotion for us) and set off for the best 4 hour tour ever. Tayne is incredibly knowledgable on the area and the wines. He, in fact, conducted the tours himself when we went to the wineries. He is well known to them and was allowed to really show us the workings of the cellars and machinery. Having had a brief chat with him before our tour, he created the perfect tour for all our needs. My children loved every minute leaving my husband and I to enjoy the beauty of the surroundings and the information and not least the delicious wines!! He was very keen to make sure my youngest was safe at all times.

We really enjoyed this (it was under the name franschhoek cycles when we did it, but same guide as above). The area is absolutely beautiful and this is a brilliant way to see the wineries. Our guide, Tayne, knew a lot about wine and loves to cycle. This was an absolutely great thing to do.

Wanted to try a different way of seeing the area and decided to tour some of the area by bike. Contacted Manic Cycles in Franschhoek and their tour guide Tayne Ruddock arranged a bike tour of Stellenbosch. We could have gone around the Franschhoek area, but glad we chose Stellenbosch. Tayne was really accommodating and helpful and we even had time for a leisurely breakfast on route! It was a wonderful morning with an excellent stop for wine and chocolate pairing and also a tasty bistro lunch. Would throughly recommend the tour company and service!
