Description

Discover the colour, energy, and history of vibrant Soweto during this Johannesburg bike tour. Hop on two wheels to explore the streets of the colourful region that more than three million people call home. With locals speaking all of the 11 official languages of South Africa, see if you can pick up a few local phrases to greet people while riding through the streets. It'll be about a 60 to 90-minute drive to the starting point of this Soweto tour (depending on traffic and pick-up points). Once the group has been gathered, you'll have some pre-cycling preparation, then take your wheels to the streets. Explore some of the area’s most famous sights, learn about the history, and discover the people that make this area the vibrant region it is today. Call into a former migrant workers’ hostel for men to learn about the realities of life here. Continue on to Meadowlands, made famous when families were forcibly removed from Sophiatown to this town in the 1950s. Cycle past the historical landmarks of the 1976 student uprisings and visit the memorial site of Hector Pieterson, the 12-year-old student who was tragically killed while protesting in 1976. Cycle down Vilakazi Street, where Nelson Mandela used to live and where Bishop Desmond Tutu has his home. End this unique Johannesburg Soweto tour at the local shebeen bar, where you can enjoy a drink, play a game of pool, and perhaps dance to the rhythm of kwaito music. This will be the last stop of the tour, and from there, you’ll cycle back to Lebo’s, where you can take in more of Soweto, the community and its people. Note that the cycling portion of this tour will be about 2-hours. The full duration of the tour will also cover pick-ups and drop-offs, as well as the pre-cycle preparation time.
