Route Description:
Difficulty Rating: 0. Route Type: Circular

There is a brief warm up stretch before the race gets under way. The opening stretch will take your breath away, literally, as you grind your way up Helshoogte Pass, before enjoying a long descent through Pniel and onwards towards Franschhoek. The ride is moderate and pleasant on this stretch as you ride through Wemmershoek and past the Drakenstein Correctional Centre. This was formerly the Victor Verster Prison where Nelson Mandela was held for three years before being released in 1990. Exercise care on the short ride on the busy Piet Retief Road into Wellington. Ahead of you is still some challenge as you head back on the rolling hills of the R44 to the finish in Stellenbosch.
