When entries for the Cape Town Cycle Tour 2015 sold out in just 8-hours last month, a Cape Argus Mania seemed to hit the international cycling community! Panicked Tweets and flustered Facebook messages were plentiful from those who didn’t manage to secure their place on the world’s largest time cycle tour – which has led to the event organisers releasing a further 3,000 entries for those who missed out.
Unlike general Cape Argus entries, which are sold on a first come first served basis, the remaining 3,000 entries will be issued on a ‘ballot-style’ basis to those who have registered their interest on the official Cape Town Cycle Tour website by 14th October. So if you want to take part in the Cape Town Cycle Tour Lotto, now is the time to register!
If you do not manage to secure a general entry through the ballot, you can still register as an International Cyclist, or enter the Cape Argus 2015 through one of the many charities. All the charities listed on the official Cape Town Cycle Tour website need your support, such as Pink Chicks Cancer support and Sea Rescue, but if you are an animal lover like me, look out for Race4Rhino – a fantastic Rhino conservation project.
We will be riding the newly renamed Cape Town Cycle Tour on our bicycle made for two on March 8th 2015 – so why not join us, and cycle the world’s most beautiful coastline with a bunch of cycling mad friends!
