Tour de PPA to provide riders with good training session before Cape Town Cycle Tour

Tour-de-PPA

The annual Tour de PPA is scheduled for 25 February 2018 and the last road funride where riders can get a good training session in before the Cape Town Cycle Tour on 11 March 2018.

Both the 72km and the 110km race will start at the Durbanville racecourse, and will take riders over Tiekiedraai, before turning right onto the undulating Contermanskloof Road. Cyclists then head right at the Vissershok 4-way stop to tackle the tough climb up Vissershok. After winding their way through Durbanville, cyclists turn left onto Wellington Road and onto the flatter open roads.

The two routes split at the R312/Fisantekraal 4-way intersection, with the shorter route turning left, while the 110km route will continue straight to the R44 where they will turn left. From there long route riders will turn left at Voor-Paardeberg, and left again onto the R304 before joining up with the 72km route at the silos. All riders then head back towards Durbanville via Adderley Road. The finish is approximately 4km from the event venue, with a neutral zone back to the Racecourse.
