“The HotChillee Cape Rouleur is the best event of its kind in the world – ”
South Africa has some of the most scenic roads in the world and this 5-day, 600km tour in the heart of Cape Winelands takes in the best of them. Based in the picturesque town of Franschhoek the 120km+ stages are followed by sunny afternoons by the pool before evenings of fine-dining.
Cape Rouleur riders are seeded into three speed groups – fast, medium and social. With professional-level event organisation each speed group is supported by the HotChillee Ride Captains, medics, mechanics and motorbike outriders and enjoys rolling road closures. Riders have choice to compete for the Sprint, Climb and General Classification Leader’s Jerseys and Age Category Awards in the flagged timed sections each day, or simply enjoy the stunning scenery in a fully supported environment.
All riders are guaranteed seeded entry to the Cape Town Cycle Tour (formally Argus) which directly follows the Cape Rouleur making a week long cycling trip in the Western Cape.
