The Cape Argus Pick n Pay Cycle Tour

Cape Town is going to have its fair share of fun and games with the Cape Argus Pick n Pay Cycle Tour on the 11th of March, commemorating 30 years of the event. Every year the cycle event gives the local tourism service providers in the Cape an injection of bookings and rentals. Last year close on 27 000 people entered the 109km race, of which many of them needed accommodation and transport for their stay.

Some cycle tour trivia: In 1977 Bill Mylrea and John Stegmann, who are credited with being the visionaries and moving spirits behind the Cycle Tour, organised the Big Ride-In to draw attention to the need for cycle paths in Cape Town. Visit for more information
