We've decided to give all you dedicated cyclists a 10% discount off your Cape Town accommodation if you book your stay with us for the 2018 Cape Town Cycle Tour

The annual Cape Town Cycle Tour (formerly known as The Cape Argus Cycle Tour) is coming up again next year on 11 March 2018. As we explained in our previous blog, the reason we're talking about this event when it's only month's away, is because people start planning for the Cape Town Cycle Tour months in advance - not only the organisers of the event, but the participants.

We've got great news for next year's participants in The Cape Town Cycle Tour. We know that cyclists travel from near and far to take part in this event, and we also know that the costs involved for people traveling to Cape Town for the cycle tour can work out to be quite hefty! This is where we come in.

Riverlodge Backpackers offers the most affordable prices for all kinds of travellers. But what's even more exciting is that we have decided to give all you dedicated cyclists a 10% discount off your accommodation if you book your stay with us for the tour, provided that you can prove your registration.
