Bringing Cyclingto People


The tour gives spectators, fans and amateur riders the chance to participate on the first day of the tour with the staging of the Rapport Classic in Paarl, which offers two ride options over distances of 115km and 60km.

Both distance options are presented on routes on which the terrain varies between flat and mildly undulating. It presents a great opportunity as a final training ride before the Cape Town Cycle Tour ride.

The 115km also represents the first stage of the Rapport Tour, with the exception of a short loop on the outskirts of Durbanville, which has been left out of the Rapport Classic.
