Stage 6
Boschendal, Stellenbosch - Boschendal, Stellenbosch
74km, 2 100m climbing 

Bacchus’s Garden

Welcome to the delights of Stellenbosch and surrounds. Not long after the start, and the rare opportunity to ride through the Simonsberg Conservancy, riders will get a stunning view back across the vineyards to Stellenbosch and False Bay, with Table Mountain in the distance. But Stellenbosch is also about great mountain biking: look out for the Tunnel of Love trail through wattle trees, the Murati loop and the series of great singletrack sections that follow it. The renowned Skyfall singletrack descent is appropriately the Land Rover Technical Terrain section of the day. But there is a whole lot more too, once again including some testing climbs. The ride back to Boschendal treats riders to a passage through the Banhoek Conservancy and then some quite tricky singletrack.
