Route Description

The circular route the Coronation Double Century currently takes is the 5th version the event has used, and will be traversed for the 11th time in 2017. It offers the best balance between route toughness, accommodation options, overall beauty and quiet roads. It starts in Swellendam and visits Suurbraak and Tradouw Pass, Op de Tradouw, Montagu and Ashton, while side-swiping Barrydale, Robertson and Bonnievale before heading back to Swellendam. Riders will experience a mix of dairy farmland, canola fields, mountain passes, a hint of the Karoo, vineyards, river-crossings, historical towns and plenty of picture-postcard moments as they pedal their way round this special corner of the Western Cape.
