E-Bike Rental: Self-Guided Tours Through Jonkershoek Nature Reserve

E-Bike Rental: Self-Guided Tours Through Jonkershoek Nature Reserve

Explore the majesty of Jonkershoek’s forest and mountain with a self-guided family-adventure ride.

As lockdown restrictions begin to ease, getting into nature has never been more appealing. And, with these self-guided adventures – suitable for the whole family – you and your clan will be able to breathe in the pure mountain air and soak up the forest scenery in Jonkershoek Nature Reserve.

The electric bicycles (e-bikes) handle like normal bicycles, but are fitted with a motor and a battery – to assist you while you pedal. This makes cycling less strenuous, and allows you to focus more on your surroundings than your heart rate!

As the tours do not require a guide, all you need is the app on your cell phone that will direct you on the planned trail. You will be sent the link once you have booked. The easy-to-ride Jeep tracks and dedicated bicycle lanes make for a relaxed (family) experience.
