Bicycling (South Africa) - - RACE DIARY -

With a more ac­ces­si­ble route, the Cape Pioneer Trek is rein­vent­ing it­self as a race for all. It’s still go­ing to be chal­leng­ing, with big climbs, tech­ni­cal ter­rain and pris­tine flow­ing sin­gle­track. It’s also still go­ing to be scenic, with the best of the Klein Karoo on show. There may even be game sight­ings, al­though organisers will be do­ing their best to avoid rid­ers be­ing chased by a giraffe this year. There will also be five out-and- back stages, which will al­low for more lux­ury at the start/ fin­ish venues, pro­vid­ing a pleas­ant en­vi­ron­ment at the race vil­lages and great mo­ti­va­tion for get­ting to the fin­ish. 15- 21 OC­TO­BER, MILKWOOD PRI­MARY SCHOOL, MOSSEL BAY, 572KM ( 7- DAY STAGE RACE)
