Well done to all cyclists who came from far and wide to participate in this awesome event. It was good to see so many familiar faces along the route and on stage during the last two weeks.

Hermanus is fast becoming popular for sporting events as it provides a scenic backdrop with good routes to explore. Wines2Whales will certainly add value to sport, tourism and our Overstrand’s economy.

It is with anticipation that we look forward to the Absa Cape Epic next year March when Hermanus will host three of the seven stages of this brutal single track event with an eighteen year history.
