The Bike Migration is offering safe and convenient bicycle transportation from Johannesburg to Swellendam and back for cyclists participating in the 2023 Old Mutual Wealth Double Century on Saturday 25 November 2023.

Bicycle transportation will be charged at the rates below. This cost includes all packing material and handling in order to transport your bike from Johannesburg to Swellendam and back to Johannesburg.

You may add an additional small bag with helmet/shoes and a bike pump at no extra cost. Space for bigger bags may be booked (we’ll transport it in a separate box). If a bag can’t safely fit with the bike into the box we’ll transport it separately but the bag will be charged for.

Please mark all bags/items clearly.


We’ll communicate race critical information on our social media platforms and through a Whatsapp broadcast group. This includes location pins of where to drop off and collect your bike, and transportation updates.

Dropping Off Your Bike

Please note that we use specially designed cardboard boxes to pack and transport bikes. When dropping off your bike, we will unclip the wheel/s and bubble-wrap them, and then place the bike frame and wheel/s in the box. When dropping off the bike, all devices which are not permanently fastened to the bike (such as speedometers, cadence meters, heart rate monitors, water bottles, etc.) can also be placed inside the box.

At The Bike Migration, we realise the value and costs associated with bicycles, and we guarantee that we will take care of your bike as if it were our own.
