Route Description:
Difficulty Rating: 0. Route Type:
The long route first heads out along the Spaanschemat River Road, on the way to the east side of Ou Kaapseweg. Here lies the first and most formidable of challenges. Make no mistake; this is a notorious hill that will test even the strongest. The good news is that it comes early on in this epic and scenic race.

Once over this, there is a nice downhill canter to Kommetjie. True, this is hardly a hill compared with what is left behind but it is there and does present itself as a climb to be reckoned with. Then comes the climb up Smitswinkel. A fair climb, 40 kilometres or so into the ride, it will make the fit and break the unprepared.

The final ride through Simon’s Town, Fish Hoek, Kalk Bay and Muizenberg is flat, easy and coastal. If you have something left in the legs, this is a good time to open up and give it all you have got. The shorter ride includes the notorious ride up Ou Kaapseweg and comes back along the Kommetjie–Fish Hoek road.
