Mini cyclists! Are you ready? This one is just for you… The annual Cape Town Cycle Tour Junior will be all kinds of fun when it returns on Sunday, 3 March 2019.
There are three routes, all within the Cape Town Stadium Precinct, that will offer budding little bike riders the opportunity to experience cycling in a safe and controlled environment.
The 1.3km is geared toward introducing youngsters between the ages of 0 and 6 years to the basics of cycling. Older kids between the ages of 6 and 12 years can attempt the longer 4km or 7km routes, which offer the more experienced young riders more of a challenge.
Parents must accompany the 1.3km route entrants on foot, while the longer route cyclists can be accompanied by a parent on a bike. The “no helmet, no ride” rule applies to both parents and riders on the longer routes.
In keeping with the vibe of Lifecycle Week, of which the Cape Town Cycle Tour Junior forms a part, the event will be about so much more than just time on the bike. The day will also feature loads of excitement and surprises – from spot prizes, shows and other great activities.
Online entries for the Cape Town Cycle Tour Junior open on Wednesday, 16 January 2019.
