Cape Town Cycle Tour – The World's Largest Timed Cycle Race

Welcome to the 2021 Cape Town Cycle Tour 

For the past 43 years the Cape Town Cycle Tour, presented by Pick n Pay, has contributed millions of Rand into social upliftment and cycling development through its beneficiaries the Rotary Club of Claremont and the Pedal Power Association.
This has only been possible thanks to the incredible support of the thousands of participants from around the world who turn out each year in support of what the Cycle Tour stands for – the promotion of health and fitness through the sport of cycling while at the same time generating much needed funds for those who are less fortunate.

The 2021 Cape Town Cycle Tour will take place on 10 October.

Where The Money Goes

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.
