2014 Tour d’Afrique Closing Ceremonies in Cape Town
Imagine cycling 12 000km from Sudan to South Africa. You spend 4 months in the saddle and average 120km per day. Pretty impressive, eh!?
A determined group of Tour d’Afrique cyclists from all over the world have done just that. Somewhat battered and bruised, they carry with them a wealth of memories which will last a lifetime. The men & women of TDA 2014 are ready to proudly ride into Cape Town. We invite you to join the riders and celebrate their tremendous achievement at the V&A Waterfront.
