I understand we have a natural disaster on our hands but has there been enough consideration taken into account for cyclists who have trained hard to beat their personal best?
The CTCT committee said they looked at all options....all options on the route affected by fire yes. Why was a route out of town heading to Blouberg and Eden on the bay not considered? That is an ideal stretch of road for cyclists and spectators.
That circular route could cover at 105km at least. Going out Blouberg way frees up the roads in Cape Town if fires flare up again, people need to be evacuated or if emergency vehicles need access to mountains.
So why congest the freeway when we could be cycling up the west coast? I really think that the CTCT committee were short-sighted with their planning....not impressed!!!

significantly shorten the race? What other options could they have
