Travelling with the race is a secondary working campsite known as the “Support Village”. These are located within close proximity of each race village and provide much needed support for riders and supporters throughout the duration of the event.

Typically service providers set up shop and provide essential services in addition to what is already on offer in the race village. Bike shops offering maintenance packages, masseuses, private team supporters as well as food and beverage vendors are typically what is on offer although anyone is able to rent a site in the village. The Support Village has excellent facilities including showers, toilets and electricity. which are included in the site fee. These sites can be booked for the duration of the event or per stage. Many supporters do choose to sleep onsite but it should be noted that the Support Village is a working site and with work often continuing throughout the night which may impact on a sound night’s sleep. Riders can expect to find qualified mechanics and physiotherapists to attend to their needs, as well as a bike wash area. 

Please note: The Support Village is not run nor managed by the Absa Cape Epic which is not responsible for services provided in the supporter villages.

A Support Village Manager is in charge of taking all bookings for the entire event and all sites must be booked through him. Please contact Flip or Celia for all enquiries about sites in the supporter villages:

Each village offers a 7m x 7m space that can be booked at each venue at a cost of R800 per night. Space is booked per Race Village.
