Quad Biking, Hermanus, (near Cape Town), South Africa
After a short briefing on what to do, you strap on your helmet, mount your multi-coloured beast and you are off throwing up a dust cloud behind you for the person following to eat.

These modern 250cc quad bikes are quite powerful, have automatic gears (so theres no fiddling about with gear selection), have lots of soft suspension so that your ride is comfy, have front and back lights (therefore making braking obvious for all to see) and big fat knobbly tyres to grip the ground.
There are many amazing scenic routes to discover, from wine farms and fields of grape vines, flower farms, olive groves, 4 x 4 trails, forests and mountain ranges. Wherever you explore with the air zipping past your face, you are bound to have incredible scenery around every corner, so remember to take your camera.
Each trip has a maximum of 10 quad bikes, so the groups are kept small and you don’t have too much of a traffic jam while zooming along for your 90min to 2 hour adventure. Your Instructor takes the lead and his assistant brings up the rear, therefore ensuring that everyone is looked after totally. Longer trips can be arranged too.
As they are rear wheel powered, steering on some sections of the terrain can be an art form, but after half an hour you will have mastered how these quad bikes react and you will be much more confident to go a bit faster (maybe).
Whether it’s for a family, a bunch of friends or for a corporate team building event, quad biking is an excellent sport that will have you smiling and laughing.
One of our recent tour group members loved his first quad biking trip so much, that as soon as he got home he bought himself a quad bike on eBay. Now if that isn’t a seal of approval of an excellent day’s adventures, then I don’t know what is.
