ALMOST TIME TO SECURE YOUR ENTRY FOR THE 2019 CAPE TOWN CYCLE TOUR

(Cape Town, August 2018) It’s on! Are you ready? Cape Town Cycle Tour General entries are opening on Thursday, 6 September, so make sure you’re ready to get yours. The Cape Town Cycle Tour, one of the world’s most iconic cycling events has once again adopted a first-come-first-served entry system for the 2019 event.

“Entries for the Cape Town Cycle Tour are capped at 35 000, which is the limit for safety and logistical reasons,” commented David Bellairs, a Director for the Cape Town Cycle Tour Trust, as he this week outlined the entry programme for the 2019 event. “It’s a mammoth undertaking and one that over the years, despite international acclaim and popularity, has remained true to its roots – continually promoting cycling and the interests of cyclists while maintaining a real ‘heart’ for the community.”

The next Cape Town Cycle Tour will take place on Sunday, 10 March 2019 and the start will again be from the historic Grand Parade Precinct.

The entry process will roll out in phases to eliminate the super-fast sell-out and potential of overloading the system of some years past.

Paid-up Pedal Power Association members (R510 per entry), Club21 members (R540 per entry) and cyclists who have ridden 9 or more races (R540 per entry) will have the opportunity to enter between Monday, 27 August and Monday 3 September. “We have done it this way to award loyal supporters of the event. Charity Group applications also opened on 27 August” said Bellairs

Cyclists who are not members of the PPA or have completed less than 9 Cycle Tours and are not riding in a special Charity group can enter online at www.capetowncycletour.com on Thursday, 6 September 2018. Entries will be allocated on a first come, first served basis and will close once the limit has been reached, or on Saturday, 20 October at 4pm, whichever occurs first.
