Port Elizabeth is fast becoming one of the best cycling cities in the country, with a number of fabulous trails in and around the major urban areas of the Friendly City. Due to the varied terrain, these trails present a combination of hills, steep ravines, rocky sections and easy-riding stretches that show off the stunning landscape and Eastern Cape vegetation. This province is also known for its temperate weather conditions; with hot, dry summers and cool, wet winters.
Hopewell Conservation Estate is a nature reserve and a housing estate situated along old Cape Road in Greenbushes (near St Albans). This means that it is only a few minutes from the city centre, while still being nestled within the unspoilt serenity of the bushveld. It has been designed to be the homely retreat for busy professionals and community leaders that appreciate the beauty and tranquillity of the Eastern Cape countryside.
