Downhill Adventures offers great cycling trips around the peninsula. You can opt for a full day at the nature reserve at Cape Point, including a picnic lunch, or a leisurely cycle through the Constantia Winelands, stopping for wine tasting along the way. Those wanting something more hard-core might like mountain biking in the Tokai Arboretum. Expect to pay R600–R7,000 per trip. 021/422–0388 or 021/422–1580. www.downhilladventures.com.
Baz Bus tours the south peninsula with a trailer full of bikes. You cycle the fun parts and sit in the bus for the rest. It costs about R425 for the whole day. 021/439-2323. www.bazbus.com.
