2024 Media Accreditation - Cape Town Cycle Tour


2024 Media Accreditation

Due to the overwhelming number of applications for media accreditation in recent years, we’ve had to implement more stringent controls in order for it to run smoothly.

Before applying for media accreditation for the Cape Town Cycle Tour, please carefully read through the information outlined below.

Please complete the media accreditation form. Clearly indicate for which events you wish to apply for accreditation.


  • Mandatory Fields are marked with asterisks (*)

  • Please tick which event you are applying for

  • Please tick which event you are applying for *

  • If this Accreditation Application is approved an Accreditation Pass will be issued by the Media Office of the Cape Town Cycle Tour Trust (the Media Office).
    Each Application for Accreditation must be submitted via email and confirmation will take place electronically. Media armbands will not be mailed in advance; all pre-registered media must pick up their materials onsite at the Cape Town Cycle Tour Number Collection. Media who have registered and met the Cape Town Cycle Tour Trust's requirements for registration will receive a confirmation e-mail.
    As a registered member of the media you will be provided with access to the Media Centres. Specific event access rules will be attached to your Accreditation Pass.

    Accredited media are required to wear event Media identification at all times.
    A history of being registered for previous Lifecycle Week events does not guarantee approval or waive the accreditation requirement. Misconduct or misrepresentation of position and/or publication/news organization may bar you and your organisation from all future events.

    The Cape Town Cycle Tour Trust reserves the right to deny, refuse or revoke media armbands during pre-registration as well as at an event. All requests will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
    Although registration is complimentary and the media are provided with amenities such as refreshments and wireless internet connections in the Media Centres, media attendees are responsible for their own additional expenses such as dining, parking, travel and accommodations.

    Each Applicant, by submitting the Media Accreditation Application, hereby acknowledges that they agree to comply with the event specific rules, and all access is subject to the conditions set out below:

    1. Event Media Accreditation Access is granted by the Media Office for the sole purpose of providing coverage, news, commentary and reporting of the Cape Town Cycle Tour.
