THE MOST BEAUTIFUL RACE IN THE WORLD
10 MARCH

The world's biggest timed cycle race – the Cape Town Cycle Tour – turns 41 this year and is expected to be as big as ever. Last year, during the height of the water crisis, the Cycle Tour Trust bought two-million litres of water, which they put into the Cape Town municipal grid. But, the water crisis has subsided now, and they're back to doing what they do best ... putting on the country's best cycle race, which attracts overwhelming support from the many spectators dotted along the tour's 109km route.
PRICE: Entries are now closed
