Entries are now open for the Paarl Rotary Club’s annual cycle race on Sunday 31 January. The race, formerly known as the Paarl Cycle Tour, has been renamed the Winelands Cycle Race and will start and finish at Hugenote Primary in Wellington for the first time. This will be an excellent race to help you gear up and improve your seeding for the Cape Town Cycle Tour 2021.

There will be three races, with online registration, timing and seeding by RaceTec, under the auspices of the Pedal Power Association. The races will start in General Hertzog Boulevard and from there cyclists can travel on three routes in the rural Agter-Paarl/Riebeek West area.

The first race over 105km starts at 06:00 (entry fee is R280, PPA members R260). It is for more experienced riders and will be a seeding race for the Cape Town Cycle Tour. The route takes riders to Hermon, Riebeek West and back to Wellington via Voor Paardeberg.

 

The second race, over 90 km, is also a seeding race for the CTCT. It starts at 07:00 (entry fee R260, PPA members R240). Riders follow the same route via Riebeek West, but cut out the detour via Voor Paardeberg.

 

The third race, over 36.6 km, starts at 08:00 (entry fee R120 for all). This race travels via the Perdeskoen and Bovlei to the R45 and then back to Wellington and is ideal for the whole family.

 

The closing date for on-line registration is Monday 25 January 2020 at 12:00, but entries on the day are also accepted if the race is not fully subscribed. Please note that, due to Covid, entries are limited to 1500 riders. Masks must be worn before and after the race.          

 

To enter, go to www.winelandscyclerace.co.za. Proceeds of the race go to Paarl Rotary projects focusing on early childhood and youth development.

 

There will be a variety of food and beverage stalls as well as a bike park at the finish. Race numbers can be collected at ASG Paarl in the Laborie Centre in Paarl on 30 January from 08:30 to 10:30 or at Chris Willemse Cycles at Willowbridge on the same day from 12:00 to 15:00.
