Cape Town Cycle Tour 2021
Experience the spirit and excitement of South Africa’s most beautiful cycling event! The 43rd edition of the Cape Town Cycle Tour is scheduled to take place on 10 October 2021.
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.
To ensure compliance with national Covid-19 regulations the event will see a revised format and a significantly reduced number of cyclists being permitted to participate.
Cyclists will no longer, as has been tradition, gather on The Grand Parade and be sent off in start batches. Riders will now be allocated a time slot or ‘start window’ during which they must roll across the official start line (at which point their timing chip will activate their actual start time). Cyclists will need to plan their route to the start carefully to ensure that they cross the start line within the “window time” allocated. These start times will be determined in accordance with seeding requirements to ensure safety on the road.
