Welcome to the digital home of the Coronation Double Century, South Africa’s premier endurance road cycling event.
Coronation Fund Managers, the Pedal Power Association and the Cape Town Cycle Tour Trust can’t wait to welcome all cyclists, support drivers, friends and families to the 2017 edition, on 25 November.
It takes a certain type of person to tackle a race such as this, and we commend you on the hours and dedication you’ve put in to make it to the start line.
