Otherwise known as ‘The Argus’, this world-renowned cycle tour is the world’s biggest bike race!
Attracting entrants from all over the world, there was fear that the CTCT 2018 would be cancelled or postponed as a result of the devastating drought in the Cape, but fear not! The CTCT 2018 is going ahead as scheduled and the festivities run for a 9-day period known as Lifecycle Week!
From the CTCT 2018 website:
Welcome to the 2018 Cape Town Cycle Tour Lifecycle Week
“With the 40th running of its world-famous cycling tour as its crescendo, the Cape Town Cycle Tour Lifecycle Week is a nine-day celebration of all things cycling, where a world-famous city embraces human power and celebrates the healthy lifestyle and freedom of movement the humble bicycle offers all its inhabitants and visitors.
The Lifecycle Week kicks off with the MTB Challenge, held out in the Cape Winelands on the Saturday, and then the Junior cycling event on the Sunday. This future-star event is hosted in the Cape Town Stadium Precinct, in the shadow of Table Mountain, which is also the venue for the registration process each entrant must follow to collect their race number for Sunday’s main event, before taking in South Africa’s biggest cycling exhibition, the Cape Town Cycle Tour Expo.”
When: 3 – 12 March 2018
Where: Cape Town (both city-central [main race] and Cape Winelands [MTB race]).
Entries: Closed (Substitutions only through official channels).

Whether you’re participating or plan on spectating, staying at Life & Leisure in Stellenbosch means you’re close enough to the action to really immerse yourself in the festivities when you want to, but also far enough away that you can relax and unwind at the end of the day and enjoy the peace and quiet!
