Reminder: how to get your copy of the Cape Town Bicycle Map

The Cape Town Bicycle Map, produced by RideYourCity, is a large-format, folded print map developed to encourage more people to ride as a mode of transport.

We aim to do this by: identifying a network of safer, connected routes; locating bicycle lanes and parking; educating cyclists about their rights and responsibilities; and informing cyclists about bicycle signage.

We welcome suggestions about routes, bicycle friendly venues, bikes on public transport, and other information.

Please note that this is a PRINT MAP – this site does not include downloadable online maps. For almost-daily updates about new routes, new facilities, information and data, please visit the Ride Your City Blog.

Our PRINT maps include:

• Cycle lanes (painted) and cycle ways (segregated)
• Bicycle parking racks
• What the bicycle street signs mean
• Rights and responsibilities of cyclists
• The safest cycling routes, recommended by cyclists
• Participating bike shops

*Our blog, and our next print maps, also includes:*

• Bicycle friendly venues and eateries
• Bicycle rental facilities
• Taking bicycles on public transport

Our print maps aim to:

• Promote bicycle safety
• Encourage commuter cycling
