A tough ride, if you go mountain biking without experience! Fortunately I was able to do the last part with the broom wagon. Lunch at Burgundy, unknown winery, was fine, drink in between at Bosschendal. The guide and the driver were very nice and helpful and after lunch we showed us a beautiful view of Franschhoek from the mountains.
