2012 Cape Argus

It’s too late to enter, but it’s a spectacle no less…


The 2012 Cape Argus is an extremely popular event that’s cherished by so many Capetonians, cyclists and non-cyclist alike. So popular in fact that there are no entries available and that the Cape Argus has won event of the year numerous times. Entries for the Cape Argus Tricycle and Junior Tour are still open.

Every year the event raises hundreds of thousand, if not millions of Rands, for deserving charities in Cape Town. The event also brings Cape Town to life on Sunday – it is the world’s biggest timed sporting event.

So even if you don’t know anyone who is going is well worth the spectacle. There will be road closures and traffic will be manic – that being said it’s hard to find a Captonian that’s not a fan of the event.

Road Closures

The most affected roads will be through Noordhoek and Hout Bay, Chapmans Peak Drive M6 and Noordhoek Rd to Princess Rd, will be closed from Saturday 6pm till Sunday 4:30pm. The area around the Green Point Stadium will be affected for most of the weekend. Western Boulevard, Beach Road to New Traffic Circle (city bound carriageway and Sea Point bound carriageway) will be closed from midday Saturday till 6:30pm Sunday.

The best route in and out of town from the Southern Suburbs will be the main road, as Heerengracht Rd and Hertzog Blvd will be closed as will the N2 out of town. The M3 southbound will be closed for most of the morning the last stretch will reopen at around midday. This will be the road that will affect the Southern Suburbs the most.

From the bottom of Suikerbosie the coastal road that stretches right through Bantry Bay, Camps Bay and Clifton will be closed from just after 6:00 am on Sunday when the race leaders start coming through, till just after 5:00pm when the back markers start limping through.
