[Event] Cape Town Cycle Tour 2018

Pure Savage's Photo Pure Savage 22 Aug 2017

So 20th of September 2017 has been set as the date that entries will open for the 2018 event!

Rumour has it there is an email about to be sent to all those that collected race packs last year about early entry to the 2018 event!

Every year toys get thrown out of the cot when people do not get entries in September but Feb comes around and there are more entries on the bikehub than there are cyclists taking selfies on Chappies!!

Thought I would start the 2018 as my eyes keep rolling to the back of my head everytime I see the "Lets move it to April" thread.

Second attempt at getting to 21.

Maybe we should all ride with fatbikes... who cares what gets put in the road by protestors then. Won't be blown away easily either.

I am actually most excited for the jnr cycle tour with my youngster, did not want to push him last year but he is loving his BB at the moment.

 

Its just to hard finding an out front garmin mount for those thin balance bike handlebars.

Brace yourself, those suggestions will still pop up here, along with the "I won't enter again until they move it" people. 

 

Will be very surprised if this thread is still civil come Friday.

If I ran the CTCT, I would just open entries and take everyone's bucks, knowing that 60% of people do not rock up on the day. Thats just my idea. Probably why I don't run events.

 

Stretching out the entry process does provide a much greater ROI for sponsors in the months leading up to CTCT, so thats a reason to go that way I guess.

On multiply, not free but still pretty cheap. BUT I work for our national carrier so get free flights anyway.

The stench of entitlement is strong around those Facebook comments. . .
