A new cycle route was launched on Sunday, May 13, in the Western Cape by the Minister of Economic Opportunities, Alan Winde, according to Tourism Update.
The route has been named Cycle Tour 364 because cyclists are able to ride it 364 days of the year. The 365th day is reserved for riders of the Cape Town Cycle Tour.
The 123km route starts and ends at the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town, taking in the Atlantic Seaboard, Hout Bay, Chapman’s Peak, Suikerbossie hill, Simon’s Town, and goes past Masiphumelele, as well as Ocean View.
The Cape Cycle Routes have been designed to put the Western Cape on the map, not just as a premier tourist destination, but as Africa’s top cycling destination.
The launch was the second in a series of cycle routes aimed at growing cycle tourism in the province. The first, the Cross Cape route, a 742km ride through the Garden Route, was launched last year.
