Ride here! – The Wapad

The Wapad / Noordhoek Peak

If you’re looking for an intermediate graded cycle, which will last you 2 – 3,5 hours, in which you will have to grind your way through several climbs, then the Wapad, including Noordhoek Peak is one for you. During the course of 2016, Jacques Marais cycled this on Ride’s behalf, and provided great insights into cycling this route. See the feature from the March 2016 issue for more detail. And then, plan your ride for if you are down on holiday or whether you live nearby.
