Welcome to Sedgefield

Ideally located on the Garden Route. With rolling hills, phenomenal fynbos and panoramic views, Sedgefield makes a perfect start-off point for both road and mountainbike cyclists.

Cycleworx is a bicycle shop owned by Eugene and Stephanie Roux, situated in the centre of Sedgefield, catering for all cycling needs, including the organising of cycle tours.

Eden Cycling Club, sponsored by Cycleworx, Engel&Völkers, First Weld and Circle Developers, have regular road and mountainbike rides. With nature right on the doorstep, the routes to choose from are plentiful. There is also a gym adjacent to the cycle shop.

So please feel free to roam this website – from the shop and gym facilities to the tours and cycle routes to the cycling club.

The name Eugene Roux is synonymous with cycling in the Cape. For many years he has been the voice of cycling South Africa in radio commentary, race announcing, training of South Africa’s top cyclists (including his son Haegyn who has represented South Africa). As the owner of Cycleworx, Eugene has been involved in the organisation of many local cycling tours, including the Tour de Eden and national championships. He is also involved in many community outreach programmes, stocks a wide range of road and mountain bikes, a full range of kit and accessories, runs a workshop, spinning studio and supplies.

In 1996 he was approached to help with the Society for the Blind of Ireland’s fund-raising twelve day cycle. The fund-raising wing of the Blazing Saddles were taken from Port Elizabeth to Cape Town. The tour included a sit down meal on the beach and the final evening’s banquet in the Two Oceans Aquarium in Cape Town – seated in front of the shark tank. The tour was so successful that the Society approached him again in 2002. This time the tour was run on a hub and spoke method basing the guests in one town for a few stages to assist the blind cyclists to become familiar with their surroundings. Again, a roaring success.

Although we have proven our mettle with such a large group (120 cyclists including 12 blind riders), our tours generally work best for smaller groups (max 15 people). We can, however, accommodate large groups.

Apart from having all the logistical needs under our belts, we also offer invaluable local knowledge on culture and history, and can arrange for German, Dutch, French and Italian speaking guides to join the group. Also, remember that Dutch is very similar to our local Afrikaans (in which all our guides are fluent).
