Welcome to the RSA5000

The Race Around South Africa – 5000 kilometres (3100 miles) in 30 days, on a road bicycle, riding/racing around the whole of South Africa. Riders have to pass several control points along the route and check in between certain times. We suggest the route (taking into consideration safety, scenery, surface & practicality) but the rest is up to you – detours. alternate routes, extra stops – as long as you go through the controls on time.

En route you will be treated to some of the best scenes our country has to offer – Cape Town, Table Mountain, The Cape Town Cycle Tour Route, the West Coast, Namibian border at Vioolsdrif, Augrabies Falls, National Parks a plenty, The Karoo, Kalahari, Highveld and Lowveld, private game reserves, natural treasures, mountain ranges, empty fields and our signature wine routes. Sunny South Africa in 30 days, check.

Start training now. Coming in 2018. The route will cover 5,000 kms with 41,000 metres of climbing. Not bad for a Strava entry.
