MTB Challenge Race Day

Remember the sunscreen! March in the Winelands is a warm affair, so come prepared for the Cape Town Cycle Tour MTB Challenge. There will be plenty of water on the route (for drinking, not dousing, we are still drought-ridden), so stop and refill, and enjoy one of the best MTB routes out there.

 MTB Challenge riders using the N1 on Saturday, please be aware of the scheduled road closure between Durban Road and the R300. EXPECT DELAYS.
