Ship To Cycle makes travels with a bike easy


The Absa Cape Epic has always attracted mountain biking’s cream of the crop, both locally and internationally. Over the past decade, the local to international rider split has neared the 50/50 mark.

With roughly 50% of the field being international, long distance travel is, naturally, required in order to race. Travelling with a bike, by plane or by car, for an hour or a day, is always stressful; especially when you consider that the average cost per bike at the 2019 Absa Cape Epic was roughly R100 000.

Ship To Cycle is the international door to door service that ensures your bike is safely and efficiently delivered to your destination. Their objective is simple: to offer a premium service that relieves you of the stress of transporting your bike to the airport and the inconveniences of the transfers to the race venue or hotel.

By trusting Ship To Cycle with their bikes, riders are free to organise their trips with more flexibility and peace of mind since Ship To Cycle works hand-in-hand with the best international couriers and offers insurance policies for the complete value of the bike, for the entirety of its journey.

Ship To Cycle is powered by SEL – Sport & Events Logistics who have, for more than twenty years, offered logistics and management services to sportspeople, teams and organisers.

Pier Carlo Bottero, CEO of Ship To Cycle, explained his excitement regarding the partnership with the Absa Cape Epic, "We are very proud and honoured to serve as the Official Bike Carrier for this pinnacle event. We aim to offer all Absa Cape Epic riders a reliable and premium service to ease the stress of transporting their bike to South Africa. We have fine-tuned a door to door service specifically for the event. Riders will have their bikes collected at their home address and delivered directly to the event. We are confident that this stress-free, first-class service will contribute to improving the riders' entire experience by allowing them to commit their hearts and minds to the task at hand - tackling The Race That Measures All."
