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, a 365 year old “little lady” on crutches (the oldest planted fruit
tree in South Africa), how a new language was born, why the BoKaap’s
houses are so colourful… and a pirate named van Hunks. 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
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.
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.
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!
