To make sure you have an amazing experience ensure that all outstanding actions in your online profile are completed before you arrive in Cape Town.

Once riders have made all of their arrangements for the race they are free to focus on the training and lead up to this phenomenal experience. It is vital that the riders are prepared early to avoid disappointments and difficulties.

Properly preparing for your arrival will ensure that you make the most of your experience of not only the race but also of all that Cape Town and the Western Cape has to offer you.


What to pack

At registration in Cape Town riders will receive a rider bag with their personal race number on it. This bag is the only bag that we transport between stage locations and all of a rider’s personal belongings required during the race must fit into this bag (including sleeping bag and sheets).

We recommend that riders don't bring any valuables along to the Absa Cape Epic. We take no responsibility for valuables lost or damaged during the course of the event.
