Some interesting facts about the cycle tour.

1) The fastest time for men’s is 02:27:29 by Robbie Hunter (2008) and fastest time for women is 02:44:04 by Renee Scott (1991).

2) The oldest cyclist to complete the race within race regulations is Japie Malan (92 years old at the time) during the 2012 Cycle Tour – on a tandem in a time of 05:49:00.

3) The record for the highest number of consecutive victories within a competitor’s age group belongs to Penny Krohn who scored 25 such wins.

4) The Cape Town Cycle Tour injects some R500 million into the Western Cape economy every year, but even more significant is the millions it raises for welfare and the impact this has on the needy both regionally and beyond.
