Sun City Cycle 4 Cansa
Aug 23 @ 6:30 am
Since its inception in 1998, the Cycle4CANSA Road Classic has distinguished itself with its emphasis on road safety, excellent medical emergency services, a stunning venue, good value for money and one of the fastest and most scenic routes through the North West Province.
The increased uptake in the entry field was evident with the change back to the traditional route four years ago and the change has stood the race in good stead ever since. The route is fast and flat and a manageable post Winter challenge.
The race offers three distances – 103km, 70km and 10km. The change back to the original race route and moving the road race to the Sunday has created a much safer and controlled race management environment. There is a dramatic decrease in traffic on Sunday mornings compared to Saturday mornings.
The Cycle4CANSA Road Classic has seen thousands of cyclists over the years achieve their personal best in a 100km event, courtesy of the flat and fast route, and this contributes massively to the popularity of the race.
The Cycle4CANSA Road Classic is a premier seeding event for the Cape Town Cycle Tour and the event has become famous for offering a fun-filled family day with loads of prizes, competitions and activities.
All cyclists gain free access to Sun City, the Valley of Waves as well as the Maze of the Lost City and the SA Sports Hall of Fame on race day. Entries are also accompanied by various promotional freebees.
