40th Cape Town Cycle Tour - applications now open

Applications for next year’s Cape Town Cycle Tour, which takes place on the 12th of March, have now opened.

Next year’s race will be the 40th annual Cape Town Cycle Tour, which will see both local and international cyclists line up in Hertzog Boulevard to tackle the spectacular 109km loop of the peninsula.

In celebrating their 40th anniversary, race director, David Bellairs, says they are looking at increasing some of the activities that people can participate in or watch, in and around the Cape.

The process has changed slightly this time around. Interested candidates have to register and go through a 7 day selection process, and organisers will then let them know if their application has been successful.

People who have ridden 21 tours and more will be given first preference to enter, says Bellairs.

Organisers have increased the number of general entries available by 500, which means people have more chance of getting in.

Successful candidates will hear from the Cape Town Cycle Tour within the week beginning Monday 29 August. They have until the 5th of September to pay the entry or forfeit their place.

Local general entries are R510 per cyclist, while Pedal Power Association members get a R30 discount, and pay R480 each.

Applications are now open at Cape Town Cycle tour website, and will remain open until 4pm next week Tuesday, the 23rd of August.
