In a media release sent out on Saturday, organisers said, "We have been advised that there is a high probability of severe winds on the Cape Peninsula within the next 24 hours. 

"We strongly urge Cape Town Cycle Tour participants who are either not comfortable or do not have experience riding in strong winds, to carefully consider their decision to participate tomorrow.
