Cape Rouleur 2014
The Cape Rouleur is a multi stage endurance road event that covers 600km and over 6000m of climbing. It is a pro style event that has rolling road closures and full logistic and crew support.
Cape Rouleur riders also get the opportunity to gain seeded entry to the Cape Argus Pick n Pay Cycle Tour, the world's largest individually timed cycle race followed by VIP hospitality. This gives participants a full week of cycling, comprising the three stages of the Cape Rouleur, a 112km Festival ride into Cape Town escorted in style by the City traffic police. The week ends with the Cape Argus Pick n Pay Cycle Tour and VIP finish line hospitality.
The Cape Rouleur takes riders through the stunning South African scenery in the Western Cape, over mountain passes such as Franschhoek, Viljeon's and Houw Hoek, around Paarl Mountain and through the Perdeberg National Reserve. Riders will enjoy the stunning Clarence Drive from Gordon's Bay - called by Phil Liggett "my favourite stretch of road on the planet". Riders are based in one of the oldest towns in South Africa and the heart of gastronomy and wine in the country, Franschhoek. As with all HotChillee events, it is organised to bring enthusiasts as close to the Tour de France experience as possible, with motorbike outriders, ride captains, lead and support vehicles, masseurs, full mechanical and paramedic support.
