South Africa/March 3rd, 2022 – South Africa is ready to be explored on ROUVY, with Giant and Liv bringing special new bikes into the app. The Tour of South Africa has just started, with 6 new augmented routes, 4 Races and 2 Group Rides, for anyone to enjoy from the comfort of one’s own home.
A big adventure awaits everyone in the vast deserts, steep mountain passes and rugged coastlines of Namibia, South Africa and Lesotho. Africa is really an amazing place and absolutely worth exploring. Though, for many reasons, it is not always very easy to scout it on a bike. Now, thanks to the rollout of six fresh routes and a number of events, cycling lovers have a great chance to ride through stunning locations that one would probably have never been able to explore at all, let alone on a saddle.
6 fresh routes in ROUVY’s augmented reality:
- Sani Pass, the mother of all passes, hosting the highest pub in Africa
- Lesotho Highlands, traveling through history
- Cape Point, historic taste of a world class event
- Tankwa Karoo, the King of the Gravels
- Moonlight Desert of Sossusvlei
- Cederberg Mountains, Home of the Rooibos
“We believe that the incredible partnership that has been forged with ROUVY provides exposure and will eventually lead to increased tourism to our beautiful country, South Africa, and her surroundings, inspiring potential visitors to include us on their bucket list of Travels, one day,” says the project founder and director, Bianca Le Roux.
