Valleys and vines – a bike ride to Elgin…

October 27, 2013

Summer in the Mother City, magic. There are gazillions of way to get the most out of Cape Town and biking is one way to do it. By that I mean biking proper.

Elgin is about 70km’s out of Cape Town, famous for its beauty and also for its fruit production and well established wine route. This has to be one of the Cape’s most exquisite areas, located in a greater area known as the Overberg.

Lunch at Oak Valley Estate

Lunch was at the Pool Room at the Oak Valley Estate – a stunning setting.  The forest leading up to the Oak Valley estate entrance is very beautiful. Sir Antonie Viljoen, who founded the Oak Valley estate in 1898, had a major love for trees and decreed that none should be cut down – as a result there are about 4000 oaks on the 30 hectares of farm property and believe me, they are magnificent…I took a walk through the soft grass and it felt amazing…there’s something so soothing about the colour green don’t you think?
