Nothing beats a leisurely stroll along the Durban promenade… except a leisurely bike ride along the promenade.

Okay, so maybe the last time you rode a bike was in the late 80’s. It doesn’t matter… riding a bike is like, ahem, riding a bike. Once you’ve learnt how, there’s no unlearning it. You know the feeling: When you get that perfect downhill with the perfect surface, it’s smooth-sailing and pretty much like flying. Amazing.

Luckily, you don’t need to own a bike to experience it. The good guys at Bike and Saddle offer bicycle tours along Durban’s beachfront. Cruise along the Indian Ocean with the sea breeze in your face, and take in the beachfront scenery –  it really is the perfect way to start or end your day in Durban.
