We’re happy to announce a NEW race!!!!  The Zevenwacht Circuit race will take place on 21 November.  Racing starts at the Zevenwacht Mall and heads towards Stellenbosch up Polkadraai Road before crossing over into Vlaeberg at the strawberry farm.  A few fast and furious loops around a 15km circuit before finishing at the top of Polkadraai before returning the Zevenwacht.  A stunning little route!
