With the click of your mouse, you’ll find everything you need to know about this weekend festival of cycling.
South Africa’s second oldest national classic takes place in and around Nelson Mandela Bay and the 29th edition is all set to roll out from January 31 to February 2, 2014. Professionals and amateurs traditionally battle it out from the wild side of Port Elizabeth to the wild trails of Addo.
The 106km Classic, which starts and finishes at Hobie Beach is known for its scenic coastal route around the “wild side” of the city. The supporting road event for the Classic will be the 55km Pursuit. The 21km Leisure Ride, 10km Sprint, 2km Kiddies’ Ride and 500m Toddlers’ Dash provide more family-friendly options, with proceeds being donated to the children’s charity Reach for a Dream.
On the mountain biking side, the 80km Extreme and 60km Adventure races have been streamlined to provide a better off-road experience, while the shortened 30km Leisure Challenge is aimed at fun riders. The 5km Kiddies’ Challenge and 500m Toddlers’ Dash complete the day's events.
