The week leading up to the cycle tour is a particularly busy one for Cape Town with visitors from all over South Africa and abroad. As a visitor to Cape Town over the cycle tour period it is advisable to make your car hire reservation as far in advance as possible. March is still peak holiday season - and the race weekend always brings on an influx of more visitors to the city.
The Cape Argus Pick ‘n Pay Cycle Tour is the largest timed cycling event in the world. Attracting in excess of 35 000 cyclists from around the globe each year, this prestigious event is definitely a unique experience for participants and spectators alike.
As this is a non-profit event, all proceeds go to two charities. Pedal Power Association uses their share to develop cycling in the community by sponsoring development cyclists and hosting fun rides in the Western Cape area. The second charity, the Rotary Club of Claremont invests their share into a variety of fundraising projects.
