The iCycle Post Double Century Tour

Jan 11, 2024 | News

The Double Century is a popular team “time trial” over 200km held in the Western Cape each year. The race is based in the historic town of Swellendam which serves as a magnet to thousands of cyclists annually. The 2023 Post DC Tour was aimed at offering those who had travelled to the Western Cape for the DC an enhanced cycling experience. 

The tour started in Swellendam the day after the DC and over the next week cyclists rode some of the best gravel roads in the country. The route took us from Swellendam, via Malgas, Riversdale, Van Wyksdorp, Rooiberg, Calitzdorp and Oudtshoorn to George. Accommodation, meals, and refreshments along the way were superb, with most riders claiming to have put on weight during the tour! 

Highlights of the tour included the Rooiberg Pass near Carlitzdorp and the very scenic gravel route along the base of the Swartberg Mountain range between Calitzorp and Oudtshoorn! 

James and Natalie were very pleased to welcome back Monty and Ollie who have done so many iCycle tours, Nicky our strong lady, and Fred, Ang, the two Mike’s who completed their first tour. Hope to see you all on Tour again soon! 

In November 2024 iCycle will offer a shorter Pre DC Tour, hope you will join us! 

Nothing like an ice-cold drink on a hot day! All our Tours are fully supported!
