Teams will be checked in the line-up to the start. Teams will not be allowed to start without all their team members wearing timing chips.
A cyclist shall not dispose of any litter – including water bottles, gel sachets and/or food – along the CDC route except in refuse bins.
We appeal to cyclists to ride no more than two abreast, in order to assist with the easy flow of traffic.
By entering the event, all cyclists accept that they are aware of the situation in respect of the route and roadworks affecting it, as well as the potential measures that may be implemented to ensure the safety of the cyclists.
DONATION REQUEST: Non-perishable food items
This year, our donation request comes from the Community Action Partnership (CAP). CAP is a non-profit organisation within Swellendam, aimed at giving people in its communities hope and helping to build resilient family units.
CAP has asked for cyclists to please donate non-perishable goods for a soup kitchen in Railton, Swellendam. The soup kitchen operates from the Railton Community Centre via a coupon system that gives priority to the elderly, sick, disabled and children. This kitchen makes nutritious meals feeding over 100 people EVERY DAY!
They have appealed for the following items be donated:
Any tinned foods – especially meaty stuff like Bully Beef
Pasta like macaroni
These goods can be placed in our marked donation bins at any of the three registration venues as well as on Race Day. Any contribution, no matter how big or small, will be appreciated as it will help make such a difference in the lives of so many people.
