From Durbanville, both routes climb up Tiekiedraai before turning right onto the undulating Contermanskloof Road. Cyclists then head right at the Vissershok stop street to tackle the tough climb up Vissershok. After winding their way through Durbanville, cyclists turn left onto Wellington Road and onto the flatter open roads.
The two routes split at the R312/Fisantekraal intersection, with the shorter route turning left while the 110 km route will continue straight to the R44 where they will turn left. From there long route riders will turn left at Voor-Paardeberg, and left again onto the R304 before joining up with the 72 km route at the silos. All riders will head back towards Durbanville via Adderley Road.
In 2017, in order to celebrate the fact that PPA is 40 years old, we'll have a fun 400m ride for kiddies at the race track. We are also planning a fun start group for all 40-year-olds who feel like starting together, great food stalls, and more!
