And just like that, the Cape Town Cycle Tour is upon us! This beautiful event, the largest individually timed cycle event in the world, takes place this weekend on Sunday 8 March.
If you’re not one of the thousands who have been training for, eating for and dreaming about this race, you can still come and show your support on the day. With spectators lining the route pretty much all the way, it’s a fun and festive atmosphere you don’t want to miss out on!
Remind yourself about the route and the road closures for the day, grab a Lime Cooler smoothie from KAUAI, choose your spot and watch roughly 35000 cyclists taking part in this magnificent race. If you’re cycling on the day, we wish you the best of luck – enjoy every moment!
The Cape Town Cycle Tour Trust is aware of the fires in the peninsula and will make a decision about the route and any necessary changes tomorrow, 4 March. For their statement, go here.
UPDATE: It was announced yesterday, 4 March, that the Cape Town Cycle Tour would be shorter this year due to the fires. For the statement, go here. #Showyoucaresolidarityride
