Cape Town is a great city to explore with Kids. Especially if you enjoy being active outdoors. On a bicycle is the ideal way to see, hear, smell and experience our magnificent city and Sea Point promenade, meet local kids in Masiphumelele, try out the pump track on a wine farm and cycle around Cape Point Nature Reserve after watching Penguins being their cute selves on Boulders Beach.
On an AWOL city cycle kids enjoy stories of sea voyages, shipwrecks, half-built bridges, how a new language was born, why the BoKaap’s houses are so colourful… and a pirate named van Hunks. We can include a ride on the famous old lady – a mini blue train . The 13 – 15km leisurely ride through our bustling city can also be rerouted along the stunning Atlantic Seaboard’s Promenade for those who prefer to miss cycling in mild traffic.
Would you like to taste Constantia’s award winning wines but thought wine tasting is not the appropriate thing to do with children? Well, in Cape Town’s iconic wine valley you can enjoy a glass of wine, while your kids enjoy themselves on a pump track after the whole family test their cycling skills on the most beautiful Green Belt cycle route.
Just as fun for Kids is exposure to township life with a local cycle guide in Masiphumelele. Nonny’s home cooked traditional meal ended-off with a home baked sweet treat is real popular among the youngsters, who get to meet local kinds on their +-3 hour voyage.
Other than cycling with them, I personally cannot wait to take my young nephews on an AWOL Table Mountain and Lion’s Head hike when they next visit Cape Town!
