The cycling event, the largest on the cycling calendar grows each year in stature.
It is competitive, but also encourages a healthy lifestyle. Next year’s tour takes place on March 10.
The entry process for the epic tour will occur in a systematic process to prevent the entries from reaching the limit at a fast pace and to hinder the overflow of entries in the system as experienced in previous years.
“Entries for the Cape Town Cycle Tour are capped at 35 000, which is the limit for safety and logistical reasons,” said David Bellairs, director of the Cape Town Cycle Tour Trust.
