All You Need To Know About The Cape Town Cycle Tour


Let the pedaling begin

This Sunday, 11 March 2018, the Mother City will be flooded with cyclists from different regions for the Cape Town Cycle Tour.

The 40th running of the race will see tens of thousands of cyclists take on the 109-km route around the Cape Peninsula. The event will bring a special twist to the usually ‘ lazy Sunday’, with young and old coming out to compete and enjoy the scenic ride.
