Bike rental in Cape Town - any feedback?
« on: October 06, 2018, 01:32:25 pm »
Hi All

I am visiting from the UK in November (2018) and need to rent a bike for my buddy (I have an XT660z that stays with my brother in the Western Cape).  Planning to head east towards/to Lesotho, via Die Hel, Baviaanskloof etc.

I've found these four rental options - I'd be grateful for any feedback on who to use/avoid.

While I do not think that your's is the type of rentals they do, it may be worthwhile contacting WILDWOOD adventures to find out more.

John Wood is a very helpful guy.
