Cycling along the longest stretch of beach in Southern Africa, on the Southernmost tip of Africa on your very own fat bike is what Fat Attack Arniston is all about.
The beautiful L’Agulhas region is your home for 2 days on your rented Rapid Fat Cat Pro Fat Bike.
At a cost of only R2850 pp and limited to a group of 20 riders, this is one not to miss. See package details below.
It’s not a Race - unless you want to make it one ... The Fat Attack concept is to ride as a group, stop to catch your breath, snap a pic, refreshments at De Mond nature reserve all while taking in this untouched stretch of pristine coastline.
If you want to arrive early, you can book in at the Arniston Hotel the night before to ensure you are fresh for the morning start.
Arniston Hotel - just 200km drive from Cape Town - is our starting point. As you arrive, the bikes are ready and waiting with your personalised name boards already fitted. We're on the beach for most of the trip, running inland in the beginning until we get to the De Mond Nature reserve. This is our lunch stop. We cross at the mouth using their 1.5km stretch of wooden board walk, this avoids any feet getting wet.
From here our day is half way complete, its another 20kms of beach riding till we make it to the famous town of Struisbaai. Heading into town for some sandy single track riding through the sleepy holiday town, we make our way to the Cape Agulhas lighthouse, where you can stand and be blown away by the beauty of the Southernmost tip of Africa.
Once your photos have been taken it’s a quick trip back down the road to the Oyster Catcher cottage. This piece of paradise offers bunk bed style rooms, large lounge areas, pool tables, outside braai area, swimming pool - all within 100 meters of the Indian ocean. Upon reaching the Oyster Catcher, your bags have arrived in your room, the fire is lit and the beers are at optimal freezing temperature.
Distance for the day - 40km
As we make our way back to the beautiful Arniston Hotel, we might be lucky and enjoy a pleasant tail wind for the trip home. A later start for those wanting to sleep in and perhaps catch an early swim in the warm Indian ocean, all this can be arranged. Prior to departure breakfast shall be served and your bags placed in the luggage truck. Lunch is served on the banks of the De Mond river again. We take a different entry to Arniston for our journey home, one which brings you past Waenhuiskrans Caves, a historical site to see. For those wishing for more of a workout, we can continue past Arniston and do an extra 15km circular loop back through some sandy single track as part of the Overberg, Cape Nature reserve.
