Overview

At Gannet Bikes we provide you with the opportunity to explore Cape Kidnappers on a Fat Bike. Cycle along this special coastline, along a sandy, gravelly and rocky beach, next to striking cliffs showing the different layers of geology. Towards the end of the beach you’ll come across our amazing gannet colonies. This is a nature trip with a bit of fun and exercise thrown in. If you've never ridden a Fat Bike before, get ready to smile....they're a lot of fun.

Great way to see the gannets and the Cape especially if time is tight, as you can comfortably be back in three hours with plenty of viewing time. Bikes are fun and go anywhere. One of ours needed a bit of maintenance but still did...More

Amazing scenery, friendly locals along the way, bikes were very good quality, could withstand jumps over rocks and were easy to ride along the beach. Would definitely recommend and would do again.

Beautiful cycle along the beach front to the gannet colony. You can go at your own pace on the bikes and stop and look at some of the awesome things around!!! Saw seals, gannets and breath taking views. Does require a bit of physical fitness...More
