Use the Bouckaert-Soenen to gear up for the Cape Town Cycle Tour. Cyclists can choose from three different routes to match their training schedule for the big one.
This race will also be the first Cape Town Cycle Tour seeding race in 2018.
The event which takes place on Sunday 4 February 2018 will again be based at De Poort in Southern Paarl. There will be a long route of 123km that goes to Wellington, Hermon and Riebeek Kasteel before returning to Paarl; the medium route of 72km follows the 123km route but cuts out the Hermon/Riebeek Kasteel; the short route of 46km is essentially a ride around the base of Paarl Mountain.
Despite the seeding and league aspects, this event is essentially family friendly and will offer food and drink stalls, and other options still to be finalised which will hopefully include, craft beer and wine tables as well as a Kidzone to give parents a break.
