The Small Pleasures of a ride in your backyard: Cape Town loves motorcycles

Summer days are the most amazing days to spend on a motorbike, and sometimes your own backyard can be put on the back burner for more adventurous or international destinations.

The Small pleasures of a ride in your backyard: Cape Town loves motorcycles


In Cape Town even a small stroll can bring many surprises: the Mother City is famous for having unbelievable hidden treasures, with so many stunning little stops to create lingering memories, that lie just around the bend from your home.

I know you have already thought of at least two personal favorites spots, that you would love to share with your fellow bikers. However, this blog is about my favorite spots, that tend to be those of the Director too. As you know, sharing is caring…so even if he might proclaim them as ‘His Own”…I said it first and this is what WE would like to share with you.

“It’s a Sunday morning, the sun is shining, and the bike is purring outside”


“It’s a Sunday morning, the sun is shining, and the bike is purring outside. This is the perfect time to grab your jacket, helmet, gloves and a big grin, and hit the road” …we like coffee, I mean….REALLY like coffee. This is our favorite excuse actually, for short weekend rides, yet this coffee has something special . A recipe with all the right ingredients, for a nice 20 minutes break from your routine. Food trucks are all the rage right now, BUT Street Café Food Truck is different. This is a little gem,  not just any food truck, but a secluded coffee van…… planted quietly in a small parking lot, off the beaten path, underneath the 12 Apostles: a good coffee, a 180º view of the blue ocean and a nice cool breeze…

That is the best way to find a little happiness even in the smallest of things.


There is nothing fancy about this spot, except the view, but with all these ingredients, it truly is a special spot, and your bike will make the most comfy seat to enjoy all of this. That , is the best way to find a little happiness even in the smallest of things.

Scooters mon amour

When riding a scooter you can’t go wrong, and If you own one you’ll understand what we mean. It doesn’t matter if you just have one because they are practical in a big city or because you like how they look: it doesn’t matter if they are functional, they give you a little trill of being quick enough in the traffic and most of all they guarantee fun of moving around in open air!

This month We had the pleasure to support the Woodstock Moto Co initiative with our scooter rental fleet of Yamaha BWS’s for a morning of riding. WMC declared September ‘Scootember’ and organized a scooter run, around Cape Town…we couldn’t have, not been part of the fun zipping around the city center, Camps Bay and ending on top of Signal Hill.

If you are looking for a deep insight report of the  Cape Town Scootember, Wes Revneke wrote a beautiful article for ZA Bikers
