Why Book This Trip?

Sportive Breaks are proud to partner with the Hotchillee team to offer Cape Rouleur – a fantastic fully supported cycling tour of the South African Winelands. A combination of fine wines, silky smooth closed roads and two wheels makes Cape Rouleur an adventure holiday of a lifetime! You’ll be based less than an hour from Cape Town in Franschhoek, a historic and picturesque town in the Cape Winelands where you’ll spend time exploring in the morning, relaxing by the pool in the afternoon and dining on gastronomic cuisine whilst enjoying a glass (or two) of the local wines.

Rides from the foothills of the Franschhoek Pass take in areas of outstanding natural beauty such as Paarl Mountain, Betty’s Bay and the Perdeberg National Reserve. Hotchillee HQ have put together an event that blends pro-rider level supported riding on the signature format of fully closed roads with support vehicles and motorbike outriders.
