About Us

Euodia ( yoo-OH-dee-uh )
from the ancient Greek meaning “pleasant or prosperous journey”

Welcome to EUODIA CYCLES – your cycling partner in the Overberg

This is the journey so far…….. from Jan’s perspective

It started as an idea next to a crackling fire with a bottle (or three) of our Valley’s finest red. Trail building and trail riding is in my blood and I wanted to share that with the world. So, why not open a bicycle rental and touring company to show the people around our beautiful countryside?

One thing lead to another and I quickly gathered that there were just not enough trails around and riding open dirt roads would not satisfy our customers, many of whom at that stage were overseas tourists.

Thus, instead of just stating the obvious, I got the ball rolling and started negotiating with the farmers in the Hemel en Aarde Valley for access to their land. We fired up the chainsaws and brush cutters, put some elbow grease behind some fire hoes and shovels and now we have some of the most beautiful trails right here on our doorstep.

During this trail building process things evolved rapidly. The rental and touring company became a bike shop to serve the needs of a growing customer base. A trail building and events company (HERMANUS ADVENTURES) was formed and – HERE WE ARE!
