Tour de PPA – Perfect Prep

Tour de PPA – Perfect Prep

Tour de PPATaking place on Sunday, 23 February, the Tour De PPA is the perfect way to fine-tune your fitness and strategy for the year’s Cape Town Cycle Tour!

An ideal warm-up, the upcoming Tour de PPA 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 … one that has a little extra incentive this year. There’s a Strava segment along Vissershok and the fastest male and female will be awarded the King of the Hill prize on the day.

There are two routes in the event – a 110 km and 72 km – and the longer version counts for Cycle Tour seeding.

THE ROUTES

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.

72 km route
A lot flatter after the Vissershok climb, this shorter route will see cyclists able to hook a big gear and build up some speed in the bigger bunches.

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, cyclist on this route will turn left on the R304, left again on the R302 and then right onto the Philadelphia road. From there the riders will then head back towards Durbanville via Adderley Road.
