Riders Earn Their Meat at Tour de Braai

Taking in some of the most scenic passes in the Klein Karoo and the Western Cape, the Tour de Braai offers riders the opportunity to cycle at leisure and then enjoy their post-ride surroundings. As the name suggests, the Tour is also about lighting a fire and enjoying a braai after every stage.
