 ROUTE DESCRIPTION

There are three routes around Paarl Mountain, measuring 102 km, 70 km and 45 km.

All three routes have a common start point at De Poort from where riders will pass the Paarl Mall and Arboretum before turning right onto the Wemmershoek Road, passing under the N1 before turning left onto Drakenstein Road passing fruit orchards before crossing over the N1 near the Huguenot Toll Plaza. Riders cycle through olive grove country along Sonstraal and Swawelstert Roads before turning right onto Piet Retief Street. Riders turn left into Champagne Street and then pass over the railway line before the R44/Stokery Road traffic lights.

102 km route – NEW ROUTE!!

At the R 44/Stokery Road traffic lights riders continue straight before turning right at the R44/R45 four-way stop before heading past the Paardeberg Prison along the Voorpaardeberg Road.  Riders will then proceed towards the R302 and along Slent Road before turning right onto the R44 at Windmeul and making their way back via the Suid-Agter Paarl Road to finish near Strawberry King.
