The Enjoy One Tonner long route (170 km) and 109 km route are both Official Premier Seeding events for the 2018 Cape Town Cycle Tour.
In 2017, the event offers a limited team competition for the 170 km. 30 teams of 6-12 riders will be accommodated in the 170 km event, riding in a team competition similar to the Coronation Double Century and Maluti Double90. Team spots will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. Teams will be seeded according to the average seeding eligibility of the team riders, and started with 30 sec to 1 min gaps. The team category will be followed by bunch start groups comprising of individual riders. (Teams that do not get a team entry for the 170 km route but who want to ride together, are welcome to ride together in the seeded group of the lowest-seeded rider in the team, as has been the case in the past.)
Prize money is on offer for the first three teams per category. Categories: All-male, mixed (3 riders of the opposite gender to finish in the top 6 team riders across the line), or all-female. The time of the 6th rider across the line will count as the team's time.
The 109 km route will be for individuals only (normal PPA bunch starts).
The new 40 km route will exclude the climb over Helshoogte and is ideal for novice riders.

The 170 km route is a tough ride that includes two challenging climbs. Right after the start, you’ll head up Helshoogte for your first big climb of the day. After a left turn onto the R45, you’ll tackle the undulating roads out towards Paarl, Wellington, Hermon and Riebeeck Kasteel. The second big climb of the day waits just after Riebeeck Kasteel: Botmaskloof Pass. From there you’ll pedal through Malmesbury and along the R304 past the silo’s and back towards Stellenbosch via the Kromme Rhee Road and the R44, finishing again on Helshoogte Road shortly before the start of the climb. There will be a neutral zone from the finish line back to the venue.
The medium (109 km) route will follow the long route before turning left at Windmeul Winery and rejoining the long route on the R304.
The new short (40 km) route will exit Stellenbosch along the R44 before returning via Kromme Rhee road to join the other routes on the way to the finish. While there are no serious climbs on this route, it does include the undulating sections along the R44. Please note the start time of the short route (which is ahead of the medium route).
