Cape Town Cycle Tour (formerly known as the Cape Argus Pick 'n Pay Cycle Tour) is the largest timed cycle event in the world and arguably the most scenic. Attracting in excess of 35 000 cyclists from around the globe each year, this prestigious event is definitely a unique experience for participants and spectators alike. Thousands of supporters line the streets to cheer on both the professional and the amateur cyclists. 

Based in Cape Town, the Cycle Tour represents 109 km of some of the most scenic spots in the world. Starting in Cape Town City Centre the route makes its way down the Blue Route leading into Simonstown then turning at Smitswinkel and heading back along the coastline before the steady climb up Chapman's Peak and finally the short, steep hill of Suikerbossie. The downhill to the finish in Green Point is a welcome respite for the weary cyclist.
