Great way to see Chapman's peak! Guided up by a true cycling pro. If you want to go fast and sit on the tail of actual pros or chill out and enjoy the breathtaking views, there is something for everyone.

Great ride with a very knowledgeable guide. I liked the steel bike and the great scenery. Really appreciated that Paris provided all the necessary clothes and clip-in shoes.

He was super awesome. Also, the location was worth the super windy ride. I loved the view. This is one of the must do places to go.

We had a great evening cycling up Chapman's peak with Paris. It was a really fun (even for a definite non-pro cyclist!) way to see part of the beautiful South African coastline. I've already recommended to a friend!
