It’s time to start getting ready for Eroica South Africa 2018! And we have some exciting news too - we’re introducing a Nova Eroica enduro-style race category! We’ll have our usual three great vintage bike routes on Saturday, along with our Eroica Festival, and on Sunday morning you can bring and race your modern gravel bike in the new 185 kilometre Nova Eroica category. As before, we still have Eroica South Africa on the weekend after that other well-loved and very famous event, the Cape Town Cycle Tour. This way we can give our international visitors a little more incentive to travel all the way to Africa to come and ride with us. So, clear the weekend of 17-18 March 2018, one week after the Cape Town Cycle Tour, and come celebrate vintage Italian road cycling culture with us - bring your classic racing bicycles, and ride with us through the beautiful Karoo around the dirt roads north of Montagu in the Western Cape. Of course there will be great food and wine, and lots of old bicycles to lust over, and now a bit of modern gravel bike racing too with Nova Eroica. With South Africa's rich cycling history, we’re proud to have this celebrated Italian event honoured on African soil. So, remember - 17-18 March 2018 in Montagu! We hope to see you there! Registration is open!
