Cape Town Cycle Tour 2020

The Cape Town Cycle Tour, formerly known as the Cape Argus Cycle Tour is an internationally-renowned bike race in it's 43rd year. Not only a popular sporting event for cyclists, it is a tourist attraction that sees an annual boom in the industry around the Western Cape.

The next race will be taking place on 8th March 2020

Known to locals as the Cape Argus, its recent name change to the Cape Town Cycling Tour was in celebration of its global popularity and iconic status - being the only competitive cycling event outside of Europe recognised in the International Cycling Union’s Golden Bike Series.

The event brings in over 35000 cyclists worldwide - who take on the gruelling 109km route through Cape Town. The race begins in the City Bowl and travels along the M3 through Lakeside and then continues through Muizenberg, Kalk Bay and Fish Hoek along the Main Road. The race then travels along the coast to Simonstown and continues through Scarborough and Ocean View. Participants will then take the route leading back along the coastline and uphill on Chapmans Peak and will then take on the notorious Suikerbossie Hill. Finally, the downhill stretch will lead cyclists to the finish line at Green Point stadium.

The cycle had humble beginnings with its first race occurring in 1978. The event, in association with the Western Province Pedal Power Association, strove to create awareness around the issue of cycle paths in Cape Town.

The event was so successful, attracting hundreds of cyclists, that it was decided that it should be turned into an annually-held event.

Not merely about the race, The Cape Town Cycling Tour donates much of its proceeds to charity, to the Pedal Power Association and the Rotary Club of Claremont being the race’s two official charities.

A team of at least 2 500 volunteers from an assortment of organisations take part in the day to make sure everything runs smoothly and safely and throughout the route there are refreshment stations and medical points. A hospitality tent and entertainment and food and refreshment awaits the cyclists and guests at the end of the race at the Cape Town Stadium.
