- Cyclists will start from SuperSport Park in Centurion and travel east to Olievenhoutbosch Road where they will cross Jean Avenue before turning right into Main Road.<br /><br />The route will then turn left into Nellmapius Drive, over the R21 where cyclists will eventually turn right onto Delmas Road (R50). <br /><br />This scenic stretch with rolling hills will take cyclists to the R51 with gradual climbing to the highest point (1663m) at 41km, and then back towards Pretoria East on the M6 (Graham Rd becomes Lynwood Rd) which is mostly downhill. <br /><br />The route then turns left into Solomon Mahlangu Drive where cyclists will face the steepest climb of the day at around 77km. <br /><br />A left turn will take them under the R21 on Van Ryneveld Avenue and around Waterkloof Airforce Base with one last small climb on River Road before the fast descent down Lenchen Avenue back to SuperSport Park.
