There is plenty of legal parking within the Cape Town CBD, and between the start and finish precincts, so there is really no need to risk a ticket – the traffic department will show no leniency, quite rightly, on any vehicle parked in a way that is dangerous or obstructs traffic flow. Please don’t leave anything visible in your vehicle, if you have to leave anything at all.
Here is limited parking available within the Cape Town Stadium, tickets for this area will be on sale on a first come, first served basis in the registration area at the Cape Town Cycle Tour Expo.
Where possible we encourage you to cycle to and from the event, or use public transport. We also encourage you to carpool, or arrange that you are dropped off at the start and collected from the finish. We encourage cyclists who decide to park at the start and finish areas to abide by the rules of the road.
The Cycle Tour will not be liable for parking fines. If you park at the finish and ride to the start, please keep left and stop at traffic lights on the way there. The same applies to cyclists who park at the start area and ride back after they have finished.
Where to get last-minute bike spares and caffeine fix, drop your tog bag and use the loo before you set out on the course.
Here is our advice on how to get to the start, in time, and with minimal hassle.
