Coronation Double Century Road Conditions
WHAT YOU NEED TO BE AWARE OF: Ongoing roadworks are currently taking place between Montagu and Ashton affecting a section of this years’ route. Approximately 10km of the route is affected by these roadworks.
An enforced & monitored neutral zone will be instituted from Van Riebeeck Road in Montagu through the Cogmanskloof Pass to the end of the Ashton Team Support Zone in Zandvliet Road. In the neutral zone between Montagu and Ashton, no cyclists are permitted to cycle at an average speed exceeding 30kph. We encourage participants to utilise the full 30 minutes of neutral time allocated to cycle the 10km, ensuring maximum safety. Once reaching the traditional Team Support Zone in Zandvliet Road, cyclists will have a further 30 minutes of neutral time to refuel at their designated Team Support Zone areas. Any riders found exceeding an average speed of 30kph through the Cogmanskloof Pass neutral zone will have their team time penalised by 30 minutes. This is being done is the interests of safety and in order for us to secure route access and permissions.
The total neutral time allocated to participants is 60 minutes (Total distance of the neutral zone, including the Team Support Zone, is 12.5km).
Below is a description of sections of the roadworks/construction area:
Van Riebeeck Road, Montagu
The road condition is no worse than it was in 2015. Currently, the neutral zone will commence 2km after you have turned into Van Riebeeck Road. 1.3km after the beginning of the neutral zone, participants will turn left onto the R62 where the roadworks start. For the safety of the participants and in the event of adverse road conditions, we reserve the right to move the start of the neutral zone to another suitable point along Van Riebeeck Road should this be necessitated.
This Pass will be closed to vehicular traffic for the duration of the event. The road surface is mostly reasonable to cycle over. However, there is only one lane available to participants for most of the way through the Pass. The other lane may be obstructed by debris and construction vehicles and therefore, please be alert while negotiating this section.
Approximately 1.5km from where cyclists join the R62 from Van Riebeeck Road (just before the tunnel/arch), there is an untarred, gravel section of about 300m. It is a rough, but currently rideable section and has some loose gravel in parts. If the road surface worsens, we reserve the right to enforce a portage section over this 300m stretch of the route. Please ensure that you have additional tubes and puncture kits in the event of a puncture.
Approximately 1km from the end of Cogmanskloof Pass, there is a section where the lane undergoing roadworks is at a lower level (approximately a metre) than the lane you cycle on. As with the rest of this section of the route, please exercise caution.
Ashton: from the Pass to the turnoff at Zandvliet Road
The section of road from the exit of the Pass to the Team Support Zone in Ashton is 3km long. Although the road condition in Ashton is also not great, it is no worse than previous years. It will be busy with motor vehicles backed up waiting for the Pass to reopen. Please note that this section of the road is still within the neutral zone.
Zandvliet Road, Ashton
Here, cyclists will meet up with their Team Support Vehicles at the traditional first Team Support Zone.
Total time allocated from the start of the enforced neutral zone to the exit of the Team Support Zone in Ashton is 1 hour.
After the Team Support Zone in Zandvliet Road, the first kilometre exiting Ashton also has roadworks and is a narrow road. If these roadworks have not been completed before the event, you must exercise caution negotiating through here as well. We will be monitoring the progress of all roadworks and will keep teams up to date with the situation
Important note: The description above is based on the situation along the Coronation Double Century route at the time of entry applications opening. We realise that things will change and we will keep you fully informed of the conditions and safety measures being implemented.
By entering the event, all riders accept that they are aware of the situation in respect of the route and roadworks affecting it, as well as the potential measures (detailed above) that may be implemented to ensure the safety of the participants.

A strict speed limit will be implemented and timing mats will be deployed at the start of the construction area and the Ashton Team Support Zone.
1.1 To compete in the CDC, riders must turn at least 18 (eighteen) years in the year of the event.
1.2 The team entry fee will not be refunded if the team is unable to participate in the CDC.

Should the withdrawing team wish to sell their team, they may not sell it for more than what they originally paid for it.
1.3 If entrants are unable to take part in the event and wish to have their entry substituted, their entry may be substituted at no charge using the online management system, until 31 October 2016. After the substitution closing date, any additions to the team and any substitute rider must pay a substitution fee of R200. The team captain must ensure that the substitute rider follows the correct substitution procedure which is found at https://coronationdc.co.za/entry-info/. If the correct procedure is not adhered to and the substitute rider is found riding illegally, the entire Team will be disqualified outright and could be sanctioned. The onus is on the team captain to notify the Events Office of any substitutions. No rider may be changed (substituted) on the day of the event. This needs to be done at the registration venues provided.
1.4 The CDC will take place regardless of bad weather and will only be cancelled, re-routed or stopped for reasons of safety. In this unlikely event, entry fees are not refundable.
1.5 Communication on CDC-related matters will be done by e-mail or SMS. It is each entrant’s responsibility to keep their contact details up to date by contacting the organisers on or by visiting this link:

The time of the sixth cyclist across the finish line will be taken as the team’s official time. Team members finishing behind the sixth cyclist of that team, will receive their actual finishing time, and will be listed as finishers, provided that they finish within the cut off time. Teams finishing with fewer than six members will not be eligible for any prizes and will receive the time of the last rider in that team.
2.2 Each rider must participate with a RaceTec (or Winning Time) timing chip and shall not ride with another rider’s number or timing chip without adhering to the substitution procedure referred to in clause 1.3 above.

Teams will be disqualified should they have more than one vehicle per support zone, or any unofficial support vehicles at the support zone or on the route.
PLEASE NOTE, Team support vehicles may not follow their teams for the entirety of the route. They may only assist their teams at the two support zones being Ashton and Bonnievale. It is the responsibility of the team captains as well as the team’s support crews to know these areas as teams WILL face disqualification should a support crew be found supporting their teams anywhere but at the two demarcated team assistance areas. This is a strict safety conscious decision and a ZERO TOLERENCE approach will be taken.

Feeding Points, Water Points & Team Support Zones
Team Support Zones: Riders may only feed from their team vehicle at the two Team Support Zones (Ashton and Bonnievale). Support vehicles may not travel on any part of the route other than at these two points.
- Top of Tradouw Pass (approx. 43km from the start)(water & Coke)
- On the corner just before Rooibrug on the R317 (water & Coke)
- Top of Op de Tradouw Pass – Feeding station (water, Coke & food).
- Drew Hall, just after the low level bridge over the Breede River (water, Coke & food).
3.1 Every rider shall ride carefully and with due regard to the safety of other cyclists and other road users.
3.2 Every rider shall wear a bicycle helmet with the strap securely fastened under his/her chin.
3.3 Every rider shall immediately comply with the instructions of the CDC marshals, Think Bike marshals and/or traffic officers. All CDC appointed staff will be clearly identifiable.

3.5 Every rider shall keep as far to the left of the road surface as is safe having regard to the circumstances and conditions.
3.6 Every rider shall at all times display his/her race number legibly and ensure it is pinned on to the back of his/her shirt. Riders are also requested to affix the Action Photo Number provided, to the front of the handlebars and helmet. This will assist with easy identification of teams and will help the crew to guide riders to the correct group on the morning of the event.
3.7 Every rider shall identify him/herself and give his/her personal details upon request to a CDC marshal, Think Bike marshal and/or traffic officer, and to any other rider and/or official requesting such information after a collision or race incident.
3.8 A rider shall not ride a bicycle fitted with triathlon, time trial or “Spinachi”-type bars and the organisers reserve the right to disallow the use of certain types of bladed wheels that are considered unsafe.

3.10 Riders are required to reach the CDC finish line in Swellendam by 16h00. Cut-offs will also be implemented along the route. A sweep vehicle will indicate the rolling closure of the course. The rolling road closure is calculated from the time the last team crosses the start line. Any rider found on the route after the cut off time, will face disqualification.
3.11 Each rider must complete the route within 10 hours of elapsed riding time in order to receive a result.
3.12 In Ashton and Bonnievale, when teams meet their support vehicle, they will be given the opportunity to “clock out” for a maximum period of 30 (thirty) minutes which will NOT count towards their teams’ riding time. ALL teams will be directed through this area and therefore all teams will be “clocked in” and “clocked out” of the team support zone. Teams will be required to cross a timing mat when “clocking in” and a second mat when “clocking out” of the support zone. Should teams fail to “clock out”, their 30 minutes will be counted towards their overall riding time. The team’s time will stop once the 6th rider of that team crosses the “entry” check mat, and will start again when the first rider of the team crosses the second “exit” mat.
3.13 A rider may not use a personal music system, e.g. iPod, or a radio communication device, including a cellular phone, whilst riding.
3.14 Should a cyclist be dropped from their team, he/she may ride behind another team if that team gives their permission. Such a rider must not interfere with the speed that this team is travelling at.
3.15 A rider shall not use foul or offensive language or make offensive, indecent or inappropriate gestures.
3.16 A rider shall wear clothing appropriate for a family event at all times. Our minimum requirement is a cycling top, cycling pants, helmet and the appropriate footwear.

3.19 A rider may not start or attempt to start before his/her designated start group. Any rider who does so may be disqualified.
3.20 A rider shall complete the CDC course with his/her own effort and shall not receive any assistance in this regard other than drafting behind or being pushed by another rider or riders of his/her own team in the CDC. No slipstreaming of motor vehicles, nor holding onto motor vehicles is permitted, with time penalties or possible disqualification for a team or any individual team member who slipstreams motorised vehicles.
3.21 No participant may accept a lift in any vehicle for any part of the route, except when withdrawing from the event.
3.22 The N2 is dangerous with fast-moving traffic. You must therefore ride in single file within the road shoulder from Swellendam to the turn-off to Suurbraak and exercise extreme caution when overtaking.
3.23 TEAMS MUST STAY APART: One team may not, under any circumstances, join another team along the route and teams are required to remain apart, except when overtaking.
3.24 When a team overtakes another team, they must ride in single file until clear of the other team.
3.25 We appeal to participants to ride no more than two abreast, in order to assist with the easy flow of traffic.
3.26 A rider shall be responsible to other riders for the proper control of his/her bicycle.
3.27 A rider shall provide reasonable assistance to any other rider involved in an accident while participating in the CDC.

3.29 A rider shall not display on his/her bicycle, clothing and cycling equipment any writing, logo or item that is offensive or that may bring the CDC into disrepute, as determined by the Cape Town Cycle Tour Trust.
3.30 A rider who is informed by a CDC marshal that his/her conduct may lead to him/her being disqualified shall immediately report to the organiser’s office when completing the course.
3.31 Any reasonable medical or emergency evacuation costs incurred on behalf of a rider by the CDC will be for the cost of the rider.
3.32 Team categories will be determined by the first 6 riders from each team that crosses the finish line, and not according to the way the team is entered. Categories for the 2015 Coronation Double Century will be Open, Mixed, Ladies and Tandem. The categories are determined as follows:
- Ladies – all Ladies Teams must have only ladies starting in their team. This team may have any number between 6 and 12 riders.
- Mixed – a minimum of 3 ladies need to finish within the first 6 riders of this team. Failing to do so will result in this team being classified as an Open Team. There will only be a first place prize awarded in this category, provided there are at least 5 mixed teams competing.
- Tandem – All riders in this team must be on tandems with no single bikes. Failing to do so will result in this team being classified as an Open Team and they will not qualify for any team prizes. There will only be a first place prize awarded in this category, provided there are at least 5 tandem teams competing.
- Open Team – An Open Team may consist of male riders only, or teams with less than 3 female riders.
- Teams with single bikes and tandems combined will be given an official team time (Open Team) but will not be eligible for any team prizes.

Protests must officially be lodged at Swellendam show grounds to the Chief Commissaire.
4.11 Based on the information provided the Protest Committee will decide to accept or reject the protest until such time that they feel there is enough information to carefully consider the protest, if at all.

Coronation Double Century is timed by RaceTec and it is compulsory for all team members to wear a RaceTec chip. If you do not own one, you will need to purchase a chip at registration.
The chip – which captures race times, and offers access to the start area – is to be worn around the ankle, or mounted to a bicycle wheel, during any event timed by RaceTec. Not only does it store important details, but is also linked to your unique personal profile, giving RaceTec real-time access to your personal info in the event of an emergency. These include address and next of kin details to medical (and medical aid) details, which can be of vital importance on race day.
