The 14th annual Cape Town Cycle Tour Mountain Bike Challenge – kicking off the annual Lifecycle Week – takes place on Saturday, February 28 and Sunday, March 1. This two-day event will return to the mountainous surrounds of Le Bonheur Wine Estate in the Greater Simonsberg Conservancy in Stellenbosch.
Mountain biking enthusiasts can choose from four spectacular, specially-designed routes, catering across all skill and fitness levels. Saturday’s event offers a fun-filled family day out, with two shorter routes of 14km and 22km available. These two routes are ideal for younger or less experienced MTB-riders looking to enjoy an exciting day of cycling.
On the Sunday more seasoned riders will be given the chance to tackle the more challenging 38km or 55km routes.
Riders who complete the long route of the Cape Town Cycle Tour MTB Challenge and the 109km Cape Town Cycle Tour will receive a special medal!
Online entries for the two shorter distances – 14km and 22km – are still open and eager MTB-ers are encouraged to enter early to avoid disappointment. For more information on the 2015 event, visit www.cycletour.co.za.
To ensure a pleasant and safe riding experience for all cyclists, the 14km and 22km routes on the Saturday are limited to a total of 2000 riders, while the longer 38km and 55km routes on the Sunday are limited to 2500 riders.
