Day Two: Pabala to Zandvlakte lodge
We start off with breakfast at Pabala and then hit the road towards Baviaans Kloof. We enter the Baviaans via the Eastern gate. At the gate, you can decide if you are up to doing the whole Gate to Gate trip, which is +- 55km. We can take you a bit further and drop you at the 40km or 30km mark depending on fitness level and how much fun you want to have. After an awesome day out on the bike, we will arrive at Zandvlakte lodge where a hot shower, cold refreshments and a 3-course meal awaits.
Day Three: Zandvlakte Lodge to Knysna
As this is the longest day out, we get an early start. If you are up for it, you will be on the bike for 85km. We start with a wholesome farm breakfast. For those that can’t manage an early breakfast, we can stop for a quick bite in Uniondale. We head over to the majestic Prince Alfred pass where we will start you off on a 15km downhill. (Because this route is more than 80km we can load the bikes so that you can ride all the nice sections and skip all the boring stuff, not that any of the views on this route are boring!) You will see a dramatic change in scenery as we start in the Karoo and end in the lush green forests of Knysna. Arriving in Knysna we will be welcomed by the awesome atmosphere of the Knysna Log inn hotel. As it is your last evening with us we give you the freedom to choose what you feel like for dinner. Knysna has an abundance of restaurants on offer. (this will be for your own account) or we can recommend a place and we can add it to your package.
Day Four: Knysna to Port Elizabeth
