Watch the sun set over the Sea Point Promenade from an electric two-wheeler at half the price!
Get ready to experience Cape Town’s picture-perfect sunset from a unique angle: the back of an electric bicycle.
After a hearty Sunday lunch, the streets of Sea Point leading up to Beach Road come alive with couples, families, solo runners and the young at heart as they chase down the best spot to witness the sun set over the Atlantic seaboard. Ditch the traffic and the search for parking by experiencing a mode of transport that’s green and 100% hassle-free!
Join in on this customary Cape Town occasion with a bit of a twist, skip the sweat and enjoy the ride!
With extensive travel experience, co-founders Laurence Haskel and Brad Levitan latched onto this economical phenomenon trending across the globe. Laurence and Brad decided to spice things up in the Mother City! “It’s a great alternative to a scooter or a car that takes up space, uses petrol and causes noise and pollution,” says Laurence passionately.
Even though you need the basic knowledge and understanding of riding a bike, don’t be fooled into thinking that you need to be part of the #FitFam in order to enjoy the pleasures of this new-age, technologically advanced travel experience. The GONOW electric bicycles are very much like a normal bike, with an extra pedal assist function, which does all the work while you cruise your way through the scenic streets of Cape Town.
The sunset trip begins at 6:30pm until about 8:30pm at 253 Regent Road in Sea Point. The tour then heads over to the well-loved Sea Point Pavilion, riding along the beach through to Bantry Bay, stopping along Sea Cliff Road for one of the four to five photo opportunities. The group will then continue through to Green Point and turn around into the sunset at Mouille Point.
