Tokai – Silvermine – Noordhoek peak ride

Another perfect day for a ride in Cape Town.  With the mercury hitting 30 deg there is no better ride to do than the one starting in Tokai and heading across to the Silvermine dam for a well deserved swim. If you are feeling fresh enough you can take on the super steep Noordhoek peak, a climb that takes 20-30 min. You are rewarded with amazing 360 deg views of  the Southern Peninsula as well as the cliffs of Constantiaberg. From the top of Noordhoek peak its downhill all the way back to the Tokai parking lot with loads of great singletrack to negotiate. I highly recommend this ride especially if you are an Xterra athlete looking to do some open water swimming training coupled with a tough MTB ride. Its also a perfect picnic spot for the family.
