16 Sep PPA welcomes Enjoy to the One Tonner
The Pedal Power Association is proud to welcome onboard ENJOY as the new title sponsor of its iconic “One Tonner” road cycle race.
The Enjoy One Tonner, which takes place on Sunday 23 October 2016, is unique in that it is one of only two events on the PPA calendar longer than 120 km. This makes it not only a challenge to complete for the average rider, but also a great training ride for cyclists participating in PPA’s Coronation Double Century roughly a month later. This year, the main race will offer a prize purse of R15k. The addition of two shorter routes (109 km and 58 km), with total prizes valued at R21k, should make for an exciting day in the saddle for all level of riders.
“We are very excited to be partnering with the PPA to host this year’s One Tonner,” said Richard Cornish from Enjoy. “With the inclusion of the two shorter distances it is going to provide a great mix of fast racing at the front with the more relaxed fun ride atmosphere towards the back. We felt this approach aligned well with our brand and product offering and we are hoping that over the next couple of years with the PPA’s input and rider feedback we can develop another sustainable exciting day in the race calendar that all riders can take part in for the foreseeable future.”
“While many participants and teams use the One Tonner as the ideal training ride for the Coronation Double Century which follows some 5 weeks later, not everyone wants to cycle 170 km,” explained PPA CEO Robert Vogel. “We therefore decided to add two shorter routes to increase the road fun-ride offering in the Cape.”

Both the 170 km and the 109 km routes in the 2016 Enjoy One Tonner will be an Official Premier Seeding Series event for the 2017 Cape Town Cycle Tour.
The event starts and finishes in Stellenbosch, with all three routes taking in the tough 5 km climb over Helshoogte, posing a challenge to cold muscles barely 1 km after the start.
While the 58 km follows the R101 to join up with the two longer routes at the R302, the medium and long routes continue towards Voorpaardeberg. The 109 km route turns left at the Windmeul Winery to join up with the long route on the R302, while the 170 km route continues towards Wellington, Hermon and Riebeeck Kasteel before returning to the venue, joining up with the two shorter routes along the way.
Depending on the prevailing wind on the day, the return via the relatively flat R304 can be a pleasure – or really hard work. Various cut-offs will be enforced along the way to ensure cyclists will reach the finish before 16h00.
At the finish, various food stalls will offer tasty treats as well as craft beer for sale, while massage therapists will take care of tired muscles.
Entries close at 16h00 on Friday 30 September. Late entries (at an additional fee) will close at14h00 on 10 October 2016 or when 2500 entries for all three routes have been received, whichever comes first.
