Race categories are for under-16 Boys, Junior Men, under-23 Men, Elite Men, 30+ Men, 40+ Men, Vets, Women and Open Vets (50+ Men).

There will also be a 2-day “Light Tour” which will be open to anyone who wishes to enter.
Cycling South Africa and H&A Toere extend a very big “Thank You” to Clover, the event’s title sponsor, and to co-sponsors Europcar South Africa and BestMed for their continued sponsorship support. Co-sponsor, Europcar South Africa, has been instrumental in their support once again in supplying vehicles for the road cycling tour. Their support of cycling does not end with vehicle support at events, as Europcar SA further invests in cycling with their Elite team, Team Europcar SA, as well as the Europcar Cycling Academy for under-16 and Junior cyclists.
Europcar South Africa will also sponsor the King-of-the-Mountain jersey for the Clover Lowveld Cycle Tour. Entries are open, and riders can enter by clicking here.Entries close on Tuesday 22 July at 23:00.
