With the 40th running of its world-famous cycling tour as its crescendo, the Cape Town Cycle Tour Lifecycle Week is a nine-day celebration of all things cycling, where a world-famous city embraces human power and celebrates the healthy lifestyle and freedom of movement the humble bicycle offers all its inhabitants and visitors.
The Lifecycle Week kicks off with the MTB Challenge, held out in the Cape Winelands on the Saturday, and then the Junior cycling event on the Sunday. This future-star event is hosted in the Cape Town Stadium Precinct, in the shadow of Table Mountain, which is also the venue for the registration process each entrant must follow to collect their race number for Sunday’s main event, before taking in South Africa’s biggest cycling exhibition, the Cape Town Cycle Tour Expo.
All proceeds from the Cape Town Cycle Tour and its sub-events in the Lifecycle Week go to its two beneficiaries, namely the Pedal Power Association (PPA) and The Rotary Club of Claremont.
In excess of R45 million has been distributed back into social upliftment and cycling development in the last 5 years through PPA and Rotary. The PPA uses its share of the proceeds to develop cycling in various communities and to promote recreational cycling throughout South Africa. The Rotary Club of Claremont uses its share across numerous projects that improve the lives of those in need in the local community.
The date for the 2019 edition of the Cape Town Cycle Tour is Sunday, 10 March.

Cycling for charity is the cornerstone of the Cape Town Cycle Tour, with the bulk of your entry fee heading straight into Rotary and PPA coffers. You can choose to do even more with your miles, though, by joining a charity group, or kickstarting your own charity drive.
Stay up to date with all that is happening around the Cape Town Cycle Tour.
