The shorter 26km route is ideal for both recreational and aspiring mountain bikers who want to test their skills on respectable climbs and flowing tracks, with vineyards, sky and far vistas over False Bay as the background to an ideal outdoor experience. The route is less technical than the long option, but you must know how to handle a bike to master a few rocky sections and some strenuous climbs!
