Its back!!! The Yzerfontein Cycle Experience, voted the best new event on Pedal Power Africa’s calendar for 2016, returns to our backyard, Yzerfontein on Sunday June the 11th. Don’t miss the opportunity to ride in this truly wonderful event. As with last year, the cycle event will be complemented by an array of local stalls and entertainers, bringing a festival-like atmosphere to the town of Yzerfontein.
Feedback from the race last year was incredibly positive, with the competitors enjoying the flat, fast, non-technical route. The veteran cyclists enjoyed the fast 73km training ride, and the less experienced , and more relaxed bunch took advantage of the 47km route, both routes being unique in that they are not open to the public, and run through the beautiful West Coast National Park.
Starting from the main beach parking area in Yzerfontein, the competitors will wind their way out of the town, onto the R315, and will turn off onto the Blombosch road which will take them into the West Coast National Park. The Park Manager, Pierre Nel, has generously approved a route which takes the cyclists on private jeep tracks through the splendid nature which the West Coast has to offer. On the return route there is a mixture of tar and jeep track which leads back to the finish line at the main beach, where competitors will receive a medal, a Coca Cola, and a Goodie Bag from Premier FMCG.
