E-bike Experience

E-bikes is a great tool for beginners to use to get into mountain biking and the same goes for those that are unable to pedal or ride a standard bicycle, as this may offer more accessibility to some.

 
 

Highlights: 

  • Covering distance in a personalized way.

  • Scenically beautiful as you stop at the blue flag beaches, SANCCOB and nature reserves. 

Beachfront Route:

The Port Elizabeth beachfront tour is 24km long, flat and non-technical. It is the easiest route we have to offer as it uses the cycle paths along the beachfront to the Cape Recife Lighthouse and back to Brickmakers Kloof where there are some amazing things to see and explore. The route itself has a lot to offer in the form of amazing views and photo opportunities as we cruise past the harbour and blue flag beaches. This route is for anybody who enjoys the fresh ocean breeze.

BAAKENS VALLEY ROUTE: 

Starting and ending in the parking lot of Bridge Street Brewery in the beautiful Brickmakers Kloof, the trail is about 24km long with about 350m of climbing and can take 2-3 hours depending on rider skill. The Baakens Valley is a long and narrow green-space running through the heart of the Port Elizabeth metropolitan area. It stretches from just above the harbour to the western outskirts of the city. The trail runs alongside and crosses the Baakens River, which is about 23 km long and has its source in the Hunters Retreat area, entering the sea through the harbour. The trail also traverses settler park nature reserve. While in Settlers Park, you may see a guinea-fowl, peacock, mountain tortoise, leopard tortoise, dassies and mongooses and, if you are lucky, also see grysbok and the beautiful Knysna Lourie. We rate this route as one of the best urban rides in South Africa.

Expect sharp climbs, rutted downhills and heaps of obstacles to test your technical skills to the max. And after the ride, there is a ice-cold beer waiting at the local brewery in brickmakers kloof.
