Cape Argus Pick n Pay Cycle Tour

South Africa's Cape Argus Pick 'n Pay Cycle Tour, the world's largest individually timed cycle race - and the first event outside Europe to be included in the International Cycling Union's Golden Bike Series - sees over 35 000 cyclists tackling a 109km route around Cape Town that is as spectacular as it is gruelling.

 

Traditionally staged on the second Sunday of March, the country's biggest one-day sporting event is fast becoming a big international drawcard, and increasingly a boon for business and tourism in the Western Cape.
