This is one of the coolest experiences in Cape Town and it will cost you almost nothing! Riding through the mother city in the middle of the night with the full moon watching over you is just plain EPIC! So here are a few steps to get you there, because it’s very very complicated, jokes! ☺
Step one: Get a bike, any bike! If it’s yours not yours, has 2 wheels, 3 wheels or 1 wheel, has 1 speed, 27 speeds or no speed, has disk breaks, v breaks or no breaks! I think you get the point, any bike will do. No one cares what you ride, its all about the ride! If you can find a bike, rent one. It will cost you R50 – R100 and be well worth it! Most of the rentals will bring the bikes to Green point, which is a huge help! Click here for a list of good rental companies! Helmets are not required but lets be honest, on the off chance you fly over your handle bars you going to wish you had one so seriously, F%&K looking cool because you’re going to look like way more of a tool lying in a hospital bed.
Step two: Get to the green point circle around before 20:30(See map below for directions)! There is plenty of parking in the area. Hang out under the big circle and watch it come alive as 100s of cyclist arrive.
Step three: When the herd leaves you follow and just keep following. Most of the main roads will be briefly shut by the City of Cape Town (Thank you auntie Helen). This means you get to fully enjoy riding through the mother city, so take it all in.
Step four: Once you finish in green market square the night is up to you. Pop into on of the many bars for a drink and then slowly make your way back to your car.
It really is as easy as that! Don’t for get to enjoy it!
