2018 One Tonner
28th October 2018 @ 6:00 am - 4:30 pm
The One Tonner is the premier road funride on the Spring cycling calendar. The two long routes are both seeding events for the 2019 Cape Town Cycle Tour.
The 170 km route is a tough ride that includes two challenging climbs. Right after the start, you’ll head up Helshoogte for your first big climb of the day. After a left turn onto the R45, you’ll tackle the undulating roads out towards Paarl, Wellington, Hermon and Riebeeck Kasteel. The second big climb of the day waits just after Riebeeck Kasteel: Botmaskloof Pass. From there you’ll pedal through Malmesbury and along the R304 past the silo’s and back towards Stellenbosch, finishing again on Helshoogte Road shortly before the start of the climb. There will be a neutral zone from the finish line back to the venue.
The 109 km route will follow the long route and excludes the section past Wellington, turning left onto the Voorpaardeberg Road at the Windmeul Winery and rejoining the long route on the R304.
The 42 km route will exclude the climb over Helshoogte.
