The 2019 Cape Town Cycle Tour is taking place around the Cape Peninsula on Sunday, March 10, 2019, resulting in road closures in the surrounding areas on race day – and the day before.
The Cape Town Cycle Tour is the largest timed cycling event in the world, attracting in excess of 35 000 cyclists from around the globe each year.
The Cycle Tour represents 109 km of some of the most scenic spots in the world. Starting in the City Centre the route makes its way down the Blue Route leading into Simonstown then turning at Smitswinkel and heading back along the coastline before the steady climb up Chapmans Peak and finally the short, steep hill of Suikerbossie. The downhill to the finish in Green Point is a welcome respite for the weary cyclist.
Organisers of the Cape Town Cycle Tour, have appealed to all residents in Muizenberg, St James, Kalk Bay, Clifton, Bantry Bay and Sea Point (including Victoria Road and Beach Road) not to park along the Main Road and to please use alternative side roads or designated parking areas.
Furthermore, locals who are not participating in the cycle tour have been encouraged to familiarise themselves with the road closures that will be in place so they can find alternative routes and not be affected on race day.
