The Herald VW Cycle Tour
03/02/2012 - Port Elizabeth - Multi-Day
The weekend-long festival of cycling kicks off with the mountain bike challenge in Addo on the Saturday followed by the road events in Port Elizabeth on the Sunday.
The 105km 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 events for the Classic will be the 70km Pursuit and 40km Challenge. The 21km Leisure Ride, 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 categories.
The Waya-Waya and Kiddies Play Land, at the road events, will keep cyclists and supporters entertained throughout the weekend.
