The Tradouw area is rich in history. The original word ‘Tradauw’ is derived from the Khoikhoi words tarras (path) and dua (women) which means 'footpath of the women'. To commemorate their legacy, we cycle, run and walk through the valley appreciating the breathtaking scenery and nature, saluting them and allowing their legacy to live on. The Tradouw cycle loop, allows for cyclists, runners and hikers to experience the beautiful valley in all its splendor. The trail runs parallel to the R62 alongside the mighty Langeberg mountains. The trail begins in the village of Barrydale at the Karoo Art Hotel with a coffee and bagel. From there it makes its way through fruit farms and vineyards up to the Op-de-Tradouw pass where it loops back through farmlands to the village. The trail has three distance options with breakout routes which allows riders, runners and hikers to experience different activities along the way.
