The annual Coronation Double Century is the grand-daddy of endurance events in South Africa; a unique time trial that sees 250 teams of between six and 12 riders unite to ride the 202km route as fast as they can (or as happily as they can). Owned by the Pedal Power Association, the event is organised by The Cape Town Cycle Tour Trust and the 2019 edition takes place in November, once again hosted by Swellendam.
The Coronation Double Century is more than just a bike race; it is a test of team spirit, sense of humour and camaraderie. Friendships are made, strengthened and sometimes broken, but never for long, as teams push on to meet the 16h30 Swellendam deadline, and the staggered cut-offs along the route.
