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

Welcome to the 2020 Cape Town Cycle Tour Lifecycle Week

With the 42nd running of its world-famous cycling tour as its crescendo, the Cape Town Cycle Tour Lifecycle Week is an eight-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 Junior Tour, held 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.

The provisional date for the 2021 Cape Town Cycle Tour is 14 March 2021.

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.
