Carnival City will be hosting the 32nd Macsteel National Classic Cycle race on February 21, ahead of the Argus Cycle Tour.
The 2016 Carnival City Macsteel National Cycle Classic will comprise a 121km route for the Elite Men and Licensed Vets (aged 30 to 49). The customary route for the 103km and 65km road races will remain.
To enter the race, participants can register on www.championchip.co.za before February 15. The entry fees are R280 for the 121km event, R270 for the 103km event, and R190 for the 65km event.
Once again, ChampionChip will be used to provide accurate timing and results for this event. All cyclists, including licensed cyclists, are required to make use of a ChampionChip. Those cyclists that do not have a chip can purchase one with their entry.
Race organisers receive no financial benefit from this event and all proceeds will go to Rotary Community Projects, the Rotary Foundation, Germiston Wheelers Charity Projects and the development of amateur cycling in South Africa.
The event starts and ends at Carnival City where there is plenty of secure parking, a welcome selection of restaurants and fast food outlets, and activities for children.
