Limited late entries for the Tour de PPA on Sunday 19 January are available at the PPA Office during registration for the event, Wednesday 15 January 10h00-16h30 and Thursday 16 January 08h30-16h30.
The Tour de PPA will start and finish at the Durbanville Racecourse with the first league group in the long route (the Cat 1 elite riders) setting off at 06h00, with subsequent groups starting at roughly 3-5 minute intervals. The first group in the short route will set off at 07h30.
Both the 110 km and 72 km routes start in Bowlers Avenue before turning right into Racecourse Road. From there cyclists climb Tiekiedraai before turning right onto the undulating Countermanskloof Road. Cyclists 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 open roads. At the R312/Fisantekraal intersection, cyclists will turn right and climb up the drag past the Fisantekraal aerodrome.
The 72 km route will turn left at the R312/R304 intersection, while the 110 kmroute will continue straight along the undulating R312 to the R44. From there long route riders will turn left onto the R44 , left again at Voor-Paardeberg and left again onto the R304 before joining up with the 72 km route at the silos. All riders will head back towards Durbanville via Adderley Road, finishing near the venue on High Street. Please note that the 110 km is a tough route – if you are not quite fit at this point, rather enter the 72 km.
