WELCOME TO GRAVEL
VIVID offers a variety of Gravel Tours from 1, 2, 3 and 4-day tours. We explore some of the most remote and less well-known towns in the Western Cape. Big sky, hard-pack gravel roads, scenic and inspiring locations. NO traffic… soul riding. Spin the legs, clear the mind and develop friendships while taking in the vast spectacular scenery. Just ride!
Vivid Bike Company has a variety of pre-arranged tours set in off the grid locations. Should the tour offerings or tour dates not suit your desired travelling needs please contact us about our custom bespoke tour options.
Touring, different from multi-day stage races gives you an opportunity to really take in your surroundings and embrace the environment you are in. Leave the hustle and bustle behind creating vivid memories.
The most suitable bike for our tours is a Gravel specific bike, cyclo-cross bike or light-weight Cross Country bike. If you do not own a gravel bike, we highly recommend renting one of our top-end bikes that are designed for the terrain we tour, explore and cycle on.
The distance cycled each day varies between 70km – 120km and is dependent on the tour offering. The majority of the kilometres ridden will be on good surface hard pack Gravel roads with the occasional tar road link. All tours are fully catered for, are fully supported and have a sweep vehicle enabling you to choose the distance you feel comfortable riding each day.
Well-appointed accommodation that is fully catered for and the occasional charming historical Hotel.
