When the world’s first multi-discipline, multi-stage cycling event takes place in the Western Cape in October, it will put to rest an age-old question of who is better on the bike: roadies or mountain bikers?
With South Africa’s fast-growing cycling industry ripe for innovation, the Cape Duo Challenge has a refreshing approach: a four-day, multi-discipline cycling event that will be contested both on and off-road as riders swap bicycles for different stages in picturesque locations, which include Slanghoek Valley, Welvanpas and Bainskloof Pass.
The multi-stage cycling event is sanctioned by the Pedal Power Association and takes place from Thursday, 5 October to Sunday, 8 October 2017 at a cost of R9,950 per team. Enter your team at www.capeduo.com. Closing date for entries is 10 September 2017.
Entries are limited to 300 pairs of amateur cyclists.
