The popular 2021 Cape Town Cycle Tour has officially been postponed, as the pandemic continues and the country deals with the ongoing second wave of COVID-19 infections.
The event, which was meant to be held on March 21, has been postponed although no new date has been given as of yet, organisers announced in a statement released on Monday, January 18.
“For several months we have been working hand in hand with the authorities and stakeholders around the possibility of hosting a significantly revised version of the Cape Town Cycle Tour in March 2021. Sadly, current circumstances make the hosting of a mass participation event in any format untenable for the immediate future,” read the statement.
“The Cape Town Cycle Tour Trust has thus taken the decision to postpone the hosting of the 2021 edition of the event to a later date in the year. We will continue to explore all available options and opportunities that remain open to us in terms of hosting a safe and memorable Cape Town Cycle Tour.”
