Our fifth and last Cyclosportif in  the 2017 series will start and finish at Simonsvlei Winery near Paarl. There are two route options: 97 km or 38.5 km.

While this is a road event, you are most welcome to do it on a road bike, mountain bike, cyclo cross bike, recumbent or a tandem.

The 97 km will count towards your seeding for the 2018 Cape Town Cycle Tour and is excellent training for the forthcoming Stellenbosch Cycle Tour, as the routes are fairly similar.

ROUTE DESCRIPTION

From the start at the Simonsvlei Winery, the route will take you towards Stellenbosch and over Helshoogte. You will pedal past the Wemmershoek dam and through the back of Paarl towards Wellington before returning via the R44 to finish shortly after the Suid-Agterpaarl road on the R101.

The 97 km route will have 3 water points and the 40 km route will have 1 water point.

Cape Town water crisis: There will be a limited supply of water at the water points and riders are encouraged to bring along sufficient hydration for the event so that we don’t waste unused water afterwards.

To keep costs down on the 38 km route, there will be no medal.
