Start time for 99 km: 06:00

  • Cyclists leave Durbanville Racecourse and follow a quiet route through Durbanville to exit via the Wellington / Klipheuwel Road (R302).
  • Shortly after leaving the greater Durbanville area, cyclists turn right onto the Lichtenburg Road (R312), pass Fisantekraal and cross the R312/R304 “fruit sellers” 4-way stop.
  • The R312 gradually climbs to the R44 where cyclists turn left towards Wellington and left again at the Windmeul Winery onto the Vryguns / Voor-Paardeberg Road.  This scenic route takes cyclists through the local farming community, past the Boland Agricultural School and Perdeberg Winery.
  • Route change: Cyclists turn left onto the newly tarred Slent Road, continue straight over the Malmesbury - Stellenbosch Road and pass the Klipheuwel silos.
  • Turn right onto the Philadelphia Road (R304), cycle the rolling hills past the Adderley Road (M58) turnoff and over the single lane bridge.
  • Route change: Continue through Philadelphia town all the way to the N7 interchange.  Turn right onto the onramp towards Cape Town (circle back over the R304) and follow the N7 (caution, keep to the left as far as possible) with assistance from Provincial Traffic.  Following beautiful views of Table Mountain, be careful on that fast downhill section to the N7 bridge, which is also the lowest point of the race.
  • Turn left onto Vissershok Road (M48). Cross the Malanshoogte / Contermanskloof 4-way stop and face the challenging Vissershok climb, culminating with the King of the Mountain.
  • Continue past Meerendal and turn right into Odendaal Street for the last climb up to the finish, followed by a 2 km neutral zone back to the Race Course.

Start time for 61 km: 07:30

  • Cyclists follow the 99km route up to the Lichtenburg Road (R312) turnoff, at which point the 61km route continues straight on the Klipheuwel Road (R302).
  • At the Philadelphia Road turn-off (Klipheuwel), cyclists turn left onto the R304 to join the 99km route from there to the finish.
