Sunday, 31 March 2019
Western CapeSimonsvlei Winery


This is a wonderful opportunity to get up, get out and get active with your friends and family. If you've done it before, why not challenge yourself to a PB. If it's your first time, you're in for a treat!
Registration will take place on Sunday, 31 March 2019 from 04h30 at Simonsvlei Winery.
97 km start at 06h00
38 km start at 06h30


From the start at the Simonsvlei Winery, the route will take you towards Stellenbosch and over Helshoogte. You will pedal past the Wemmershoek dam and through the back of Paarl towards Wellington before returning via the R44 to finish shortly after the Suid-Agterpaarl road on the R101. (Can we make this more appealing?)
The 97 km route will have 3 water points and the 38 km route will have 1 water point.




This series of fun rides is aimed at all cyclists, from beginners to experienced riders, and offers the perfect platform if you want to keep fit riding road events throughout the year, improving your times and setting a new personal bests.


If you’re brave enough to take on the challenge of the longer routes, the series is a great test for endurance and stamina … and needless to say, completing all the events will be a great source of personal achievement.


No pressure though! Each one is also a standalone event, so you don’t have to enter all in the Sportive Series.
