The last PPA-organised funride before the annual Cape Town Cycle Tour, this event starts and ends at the Durbanville Racecourse, and is a great opportunity to get in a final, solid training session on a course that includes the testing Vissershok climb. There are two routes in the event – a 110 km and 72 km – and the long route is the final Premier Seeding event for the 2023 Cape Town Cycle Tour .

There will be an information tent to assist riders with any last-minute questions as well as a bike shop for minor bike adjustments and last-minute spares anyone may need. There will be a variety of food and drinks on offer! There will be a bike park to ensure more room around the venue for everyone. So come sit back, relax, and enjoy the moment with friends and family.

Our PPA Stay Wider of the Rider safe cycling team will be cheering you along at a waterpoint where they will be raising awareness amongst the motorist along the route. Please support our safe cycling campaign and cycle in your Stay Wider of the Rider cycling jersey.

ROUTE INFORMATION:

110 km route

With three climbs split evenly through the route, this is a ride that calls for measured energy outputs.

From Durbanville, riders climb up Tiekiedraai before turning right onto the undulating Contermanskloof Road. They then head right at the Vissershok stop street to tackle the tough climb up Vissershok. After winding their way through Durbanville, cyclists turn left onto Wellington Road and onto the flatter open roads.

At the R312/Fisantekraal intersection, riders continue straight to the R44 where they will turn left. It’s another left at Voor-Paardeberg and left again onto the R304 before joining up with the 72 km route at the silos. The riders will then head back towards Durbanville via Adderley Road.
