Russian Motorcycle Sidecar Experience Western Cape Wineland Experience for 2 (5hrs)
A sidecar tour offers you a unique way to experience the freedom of the road – exploring South Africa on a classic-styled Russian sidecar motorcycle.
On this day tour, we meet at one of our pre-arranged wine estates at an arranged time, where your friendly chauffeur will introduce you to your Sidecar rig ( all our sidecars have personalised names)and run through the options you’ve chosen and supply you with a clean /fresh helmet.
Please note that our tours are slow and safe, the idea is to enjoy the stunning scenery of the Cape Mountains and vineyards from the comfort of your trusted Steed.
Our tour normally heads out towards Franschoek via the Hells Hoogte pass, stopping at scenic points to take pictures of you on the sidecar. From time to time we take a hidden dirt road and discover places not seen from the main road. We like to stop at a couple of wine Estates for a coffee and more photos, but you will always be given the option first.
We then take a slow drive through Franschoek Town, great fun as people wave at us. Then up the Franschoek pass to a shady picnic spot, great views while you relax and enjoy some snacks and refreshments. Again we give you the option of more mountain travelling or the slow back roads back to Stellenbosch. At any time you can ask us to stop if you see anything of interest or shop that you would like to explore. Remember this is your day, and we try hard to make it as memorable as possible.
Once we have turned and headed back to your pick up spot, we continue exploring the back roads and scenery at leisure. We have chosen our meeting sites so that you can enjoy a wine tasting or meal at your leisure when we end the trip. Should you prefer a coastal trip, then we can take the scenic coastal road to Betties Bay and Pringle Bay, instead of the inland trip, your choice.
Please remember to bring the following:
Camera, sunscreen, Sunglasses, and a cap for when you are not on
We supply good, clean helmets, water whilst on the trip, picnic snacks eg. Crisps, cheese and biscuits, biltong , nuts, fruit juice etc. All other meals, refreshments and activities are for your own account.
Please let us know in advance if you would prefer something different, we will try and accommodate you.
Please note that the sidecar has a weight limit of 120 kg and 90kg for the passenger on the motorcycle behind the driver.
The sidecar is extremely comfortable, with plenty of place for cameras and a jacket for those unexpected temperature drops. The motor cycle has 2 individual seats so you are not pressed up against anyone.
We look forward to sharing this wonderful experience with you soon. Should you wish to design your own itinerary, please discuss this with us, and we will try and accommodate you. We love trying new routes too.
