We are very excited to announce that Pedal Power Association will take over the organisational duties of the Medihelp Stellenbosh Cycle Tour in 2020. We will keep the racing aspect of the event with little changes. The event will move back to Stellenbosch High School and will follow a similar route to the old one.

 

Route Description

The 97 km route climbs the Helshoogte Pass shortly after the start, and once over the top, you’re rolling fast through spectacular scenery. Then you will turn right onto the R45 after about 16 km towards Franschhoek and in just under 7 km from there you will turn left onto the Wemmershoek road. Your first refreshment station will be at 32 km in front of Pearl Valley Golf Estate.

 

From there you will cycle towards Paarl and at 38.4 km you will turn right onto Lustigan Rd/Drakenstein road. You will stay on Lustigan for a short distance before turning right again into Denneboom & Sonstraal road at 41.4 km.

 

The second refreshment station will be at the 55.3 km mark at the Wellington graveyard. After you had a drink you will start to return to the venue via the R44 and you will find refreshment station 3 opposite Windmeul Winery at the 64.7 km mark.

 

Refreshment station 4 will be at the Anyswortelrug road at 78 km. You will continue straight over the Klapmuts 4-way towards Stellenbosch. Your 5th and final refreshment station will be opposite the Knorhoek sign. From this point, you only have 8 km to go!!!

 

The finish will be on Helshoogte road before Idas Valley.
