WHY TREESHAKE LOVES THE Ride In
- Breathtaking views of the majestic Jonkershoek Valley & Stellenboschberg, whilst typing emails.
- Delicious food, healthy food, great coffee and all at a very reasonable price. They even have blankies & board games.
- You can lock up your laptop and go for a trail run, hike or mountain bike ride and come back, shower (yes, they have great shower facilities) and continue work. True story!
- Have a look at the site if you want to know more: http://www.ridein.co.za/
There is free wifi and the speed is okay, but not fast enough to support a video call.
There are plenty of plugs.
The staff is friendly and prompt.
Food and Drinks
The food, snacks and coffee is superb and very reasonable.
Think mountains and farm-like atmosphere, with wifi. Ride In was built with the purpose of being the '19th hole' for mountain bikers. So, there's always some lycra around. :) But there are always folk with laptops both inside and outside. Basically, it's a great vibe.
Death Stare Factor
There is no issue if you sit there the whole day with your laptop and order only 1 or 2 coffees. So, death stare factor is a flat 0!
HOW TO GET THERE
Whether you take the N1 or N2 from Cape Town, it's a bout a 50 minute drive. The road into Jonkershoek is incredibly picturesque. There's plenty of parking on the Ride In Property.
An Uber from Cape Town to Jonkershoek will probably cost you about 500 Mandelas.
As an alternative, you can take the Metro from Cape Town to Stellenbosch, and then an Uber to Ride In.
