With Table Mountain as the backdrop and the infamous Robben Island where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for more than 28 years in the foreground, this tour circles around Table Bay for an easy coastal ride out to the towns of Blouberg Strand and Melkbos (Milkwood) Strand.

Cycle out along Cape Town's latest dedicated cycle path, leaving behind the urban foreshore and harbor area. Quickly traverse out to Paarden Island and the white sandy beaches with magnificent fynbos covered dunes that is your lovely companion on the ride.

Table Bay (Afrikaans Tafelbaai) is a natural bay on the Atlantic Ocean overlooked by Cape Town, founded in 1652 by Van Riebeeck. It is at the northern end of the Cape Peninsula, which stretches south to the Cape of Good Hope. Table Bay is named this way because it is dominated by the flat-topped Table Mountain.

Bartolomeu Dias was the first European to explore this region in 1486. The bay, although famous for centuries as a haven for ships, is actually a rather poor natural harbor and is badly exposed to gales from both the SE and NW. Many sailing ships seeking refuge in the bay during the 17th and 18th centuries were driven ashore by storms.
The Dutch colonists nevertheless persisted with their efforts on the shores of Table Bay, because good natural harbors along this coastline are almost non-existent. The best of them- Saldanha Bay- lacked fresh water and the only realistic alternatives- Simon's Bay and Houtbaai- were rightly inaccessible at the time and only marginally less exposed to the weather, which is notoriously bad often enough in the Cape Peninsula. Eventually a harbor was built in Table Bay by a process of land reclamation and was defended by breakwaters to protect shipping. The older part of this structure is called the Victoria Dock. The newer part is called the Duncan Dock. Robben Island, where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for decades, is in this bay.
