Entries for the world’s biggest timed sportif fill up almost six months before the event, through a well-publicised online process that sees 30 000-plus tickets snapped up in just a few hours (International riders have a slightly wider window in which to enter). If you missed out in the first round, but have found an entry going spare, there is a legal way to transfer it into your name. Failure to follow the process will lead to disqualification from future Cycle Tours for both parties, so please do it the right way! We need to know exactly who we are dealing with in an emergency.
The Cape Town Cycle Tour is a founder-member of the World Association of Cycling Events, alongside five other world-famous events: New York’s TD Five Boro BikeTour, Granfondo Campagnolo Roma, Etape du Tour (in France), Prudential RideLondon and Vätterundan, in Sweden. Are you up for the WACE Challenge? Ride all six, and join a truly elite club complete with limited-edition cycling kit, medals and kudos beyond compare.
