For those who come to Cape Town from abroad: you can hire a car which fits your bicycle at AROUND ABOUT CARS to go to the city from the airport. As there are always a lot of demands for this time period, be sure to book early. If you are a local and want to go there by car or go by car around the area be careful, because there will be several road blocks around the route.
