Wat je gaat doen

Experience the city on two wheels

We will meet in Victoria Yards, Lorentzville - one of Joburg's newest urban renewal spots where you can check out what's happening in this thriving community.

The route described below is mainly for example purposes, as the great thing about being on two wheels is the flexibility it gives. Depending on the group's experience, fitness, and/or enthusiasm levels, it will be very easy to add additional stops.

We'll cycle past Ellis Park Stadium and through New Doornfontein to Maboneng. From Maboneng we'll then go through Jeppe and Marshall Town to 1 Fox, checking out some of the great graffiti along the way.

From there it's a dash through Newtown, and over the bridge into Braamfontein , where we'll stop and have a drink.

We'll discuss the route back during this break, as there are several options that we could do. We could, for example, cycle via Hillbrow, or take the more direct route through the city. The overall distance will depend on the stops, but you're looking at around 12 -15 km.

This tour is led by Emile Kruger, a keen cyclist and owner of 'Whippet Cycling Co,' a well-known vintage bicycle shop in Johannesburg. Since 2013, I have been holding regular social rides for Joburg locals so that they can experience the city on two wheels. There's nothing quite like it, the city is a buzz with an energy that you get to directly experience on ground level. I have an expert knowledge of the city, and will guide you safely to various locations within the CBD.

Waar je naartoe gaat

The route has been chosen as it gives a nice reflection of the city, going through several neighbourhoods and precincts - some with great historical significance. The route starts at one of Joburg's newest spots, a thriving inner city artist studio complex and passes through others (Maboneng, Newtown and Braam). Guests will also be able to see life in the city outside of these regeneration hotspots.

Emile was really great and he is super informed when it comes to Johannesburg. I learned so much even though i am based in Johannesburg. I would encourage everyone to visit the Whippet and experience the awesomeness. Emile is the friendliest host. A definite must visit gain.

Wow! Riding through Johannesburg's Central Business District on a hipster, single-speed bicycle gave me a whole new perspective on these vibrant inner-city neighborhoods. I appreciate the accessibility of the city by bicycle. I thoroughly enjoyed mixing it up with the taxis, buses and downtown traffic. History came alive as we toured key historical points. I also got a feel for the current creative impulses that infuse the city's inner-life. I'd do it again in a heartbeat!

This was definitely an ‘experience’! Emile’s wife was there to meet and greet us to Victoria Yards. They were so friendly and accommodating, even going as far to custom building a bicycle to make my wife feel more comfortable. Amazing. Our guide, Thabo, was very friendly and informative. This is a side of Johannesburg that most tourists will stay away from but we never felt unsafe. We saw parts of the inner city and Historical parts of downtown. When we stopped for a break we were treated to fresh juice for refreshment. You definitely need to have ridden a bike in the city before to do this as there are hills and potholes just like any other city. But overall it was brilliant. I definitely recommend it. Thanks again Emilie

Great tour. Emile is completely in his element, and this trip lets you join him on a deep dive into the areas around his bike shop. I appreciated that Emile did not limit the tour to the ‘sterile’ parts of town yet simultaneously kept things safe and in good hands throughout.

This bicycle trip through the CBD and other Joburg neighbourhoods was quite fun and showed Jozi from a different perspective. It was a fun experience, something you wouldn't do on your own so it's nice that this is available.
