South Africa

Your world in one place

The 40-km moderate trail takes you on a network of gravel roads that traverses the sizeable outcrop of Kasteelberg. It’s a reasonable climb with a solid road surface for most of the way, but riders should expect lots of mud in winter. Enjoy fantastic views of the famous vineyards and olive fields of the Riebeek Valley. Parking and ablutions are available in Riebeek Kasteel town.

Getting there: from Cape Town, head along the N7 before turning left off the highway to pass through Malmesbury. Here, take the R45 and follow the Ceres road to the town of Riebeek Kasteel. Crank off from the Royal Hotel towards neighbouring Riebeek West, looking out for a good gravel road heading left into the Wamakers Valley. From here, a network of farm roads take you onto Kasteelberg, allowing you to traverse this sizeable outcrop in a clockwise direction. It is a reasonable climb with solid road surface for most of the way, but expect lots of mud in winter. Join the R46 and turn left for a tarmac run back into the village.
