 K2C COMMUNITY CYCLING

Namaqualand Cycle Tours:

Multiple Day Tours:

The spring wild flowers are a phenomenon that never ceases to amaze and delight.  What at first glance appears to be a wilderness of semi-desert - arid, dusty plains that stretch before one, dramatic mountains in the background, with little by way of colour or animation - is suddenly transformed, as if by a painter with a manic palette, into a pageant of flowers.   The riot of flowers is a highly volatile exhibition. Almost 4,000 different species of plant seeds lie awaiting germination that depends entirely on what the weather is doing. Thus every year between July and October brings a different formula, and a different selection of flowers.   What better way to experience this artistic miracle than on a bicycle.   Spend your day’s cycling across the vast landscape of flowers and exploring the different scenery  - truly a pleasure for all senses.

The old harbour with its restored fishing boats gives a glimpse of times past. Hermanus’s two lagoons and the ocean provide a water sport paradise for kayaking, canoeing, wind surfing, etc. Shark cage diving provides an adrenaline fix for adventure lovers.
