Our mission

Mobilise Africa; independently, economically, ecologically

Motorised bicycle (48 cc 2-stroke engines)

Our story

Cycle cape point formed in 2015 with a goal to sustainably mobilise tourists and locals of South Africa's cape peninsula, with a view to expand into the rest of Africa. Early iterations included building motorised and electric bikes to help with the vast distances, steep hills and extreme winds in the area. Although popular, setup costs, maintenance and recovery proved the vehicles non-viable for business. The first picture shows one of our early machines near Cape point.


Currently, we are finding giant escape bicycles and kymco scooters to be efficient, reliable and user friendly. Our self-sufficient growth model is to mobilise as many tourists as possible with rentals and tours; ending each season by distributing bikes to locals. 

Here is why bicycles and scooters make sense in Africa:

  • Riding is free or very low cost
  • Technology is robust, affordable and scalable
  • Little to no security, parking or emission problems
  • Mechanics are easy to train. Parts are affordable.
  • Mobility is independent, empowering people
  • Most days are sunny
  • Mobility is the number 1 route to economic freedom

The African population is presently estimated at 1.2 billion people, of which 40% live in absolute poverty. Much of this poverty has been directly caused by western world exploitation of the land and people. Our rather ambitious aim is to help facilitate the distribution of 100 million quality bicycles to the African people over a 10 year period.


Apps for empowerment

Two mobile application projects are underway to support a network expansion.

  • Development of location based bicycle networking app for routes, rentals and sales
  • Development of Uber for scooters app
