Yzerfontein Cycle Experience

Location: Yzerfontein

Date: 03 November 2018


Its back!!! The Blue Ribbon Yzerfontein Cycle Experience returns to our backyard, Yzerfontein on Saturday the 3rd of November. As with the previous two years, the cycle event will be complemented by an array of local stalls and entertainers, bringing a festival-like atmosphere to the town of Yzerfontein. Feedback from the race last year was incredibly positive, with the competitors enjoying the flat, fast, non-technical route. The veteran cyclists enjoyed the fast 78km training ride, and the less experienced , and more relaxed bunch took advantage of the 52km route, both routes being unique in that they are not open to the public, and run through the beautiful West Coast National Park.Starting from the main beach parking area in Yzerfontein, the competitors will wind their way out of the town, onto the R315, and will turn off onto the Blombosch road which will take them into the West Coast National Park. The Park Manager, Pierre Nel, has generously approved a route which takes the cyclists on private jeep tracks through the splendid nature which the West Coast has to offer. On the return route there is a mixture of tar and jeep track which leads back to the finish line at the main beach, where competitors will receive a medal, a Coca Cola, and an exceptional Premier Goodie Bag.This is not just any race, we are uplifting the community, and proceeds will benefit the international Police Forum, the Jenna Lowe Trust and Reach for a Dream Foundation. All three beneficiaries will be available on the day to talk to interested parties about their organisations and the work they do.ROUTE DESCRIPTION78 KMyy38km will be tar (50%) and the rest will be jeep track.yyVery little sand.yyGreat spot to turn around at the beach lookout place.yyLots of ostriches, tortoises, flamingos and eland spotted.52 KMyy50% will be tar and 50 % will be jeep track.yyVery little sand.yyThis will be a flat route for the fit non-technical riders.yyLots of ostriches, tortoises, flamingos and eland spotted.The distances include a 5km neutral zone from the finish to the venue.YOUR ENTRY FEE INCLUDESyyExceptional Goodie Bags by Premier for all entrants.yyAccess to all race facilities.yy2 water points sponsored by Premier along the route in the West Coast National Park.yyFinisher Medals for all participants.yyGourmet Food Stalls, Local Craft Stalls, Kids Activities, Live Music at the Yzerfontein Recreational Club throughout the day.yyRider Discount on accommodation bookings in Yzerfontein for the weekend (see for participating venues)yyTo stand a chance to win fabulous prizes in our lucky draw stay until 14:30REGISTRATIONOnline entries will close at 15:00 on Thursday, 1 Nov 2018.
