The route shown on the map is through Cape Town CBD but keep in mind you can also do the Radisson Red to Camps Bay route and then follow Camps Bay Drive all the way up or take Kloof Road. If you use the Cape Town CBD route shown there are a few worthwhile places to stop such as Bo Kaap to see the Cape Malay culture and old Dutch colourful houses, Bree street has many restaurants and coffee shops to stop at. Jasons Bakery is always busy and worth a stop on the bike. Take a nice slow ride up Kloof Nek road when you get to the top take a left to get to Table Mountain Which is prefect on a scooter because you can park close to the cable car. OR take a right to Signal Hill and Lions Head. If you a hiker walk up Lions head its always busy with people and should take you about 45min up and then another 45min down. OR carry on straight to Signal Hill to see panoramic views of the city. If you going direct from Radisson Red to Signal Hill this drive will take you about 20 minutes and is only 8km but there is so much to see in between we would suggest stopping.
The route shown takes you to Rhodes memorial which sits above University of Cape Town high on the foothills of Table Mountain and perfect for a great view of Cape Town. From there the route takes you to the famous Kirstenbosch Gardens which alone can take you an entire day to walk around, don’t miss the skywalk. Carry on the scooter ride through the leafy suburb of Constantia on to Muizenburg where you can learn to surf at Surfers Corner or swim in the Indian Ocean which is warmer than the Atlantic Ocean (Camps Bay side.)

The road along the coast leading out of Muizenburg takes you through small enclaves such as St James, Kalk Bay, Fish Hoek and Simons Town where you can visit the penguins at Boulder Beach. All along there are great places to stop for pictures, good restaurants, coffee shops and a relaxed vibe. The distance is around 50km so it is a decent drive and definitely a full day out.
