The marshals will be in position from 05:30 to guide you to the parking area at the Fish Market as you enter Yzerfontein on the R315. We ask that you park respectfully so that we may maximise the allocated parking area. Participants can ride their bikes from the parking area to the registration hall until 06:45 (+/- 1,3km from parking area). There will be a free shuttle service available from the Fish Market to the start point for non-riders. From registration you will be crossing a street that is part of the start route, so once again, please obey marshals.

 

The start of the race will be from 07:00. As advertised the track is relatively flat and easygoing. There are one or two small sandy areas, and one rough area of gravel, other than that, even our novice riders should enjoy the unique experience.

 

Cut off time will be at 11:30, where after you will need to make use of the sweeper vehicle.

 

You will be riding through areas where there is game present, including Water Buffalo, Zebra, Eland, Kudu, Ostrich and Springbok. Enjoy the experience!

 

There are two water points en route for both distances.

 

JetLine Photo will take photographs on the course. Be sure to place your sticker on your race number if you want photographs.

 

We have Provincial, and municipal traffic on duty, we would however please ask cyclists to ride responsibly through the town, and in particular on the stretch of R315 before you hit the Blombosch turnoff.

 

PPA emergency number for the event is 083 414 1442. As opposed to YCE2017, the finish line will now be at the scenic beachfront parking area, the same as the start.

 

All riders completing the race will receive a medal and a Blue Ribbon goodie bag at the finish line.

 

There are a host of food and craft vendors at the YCE Race Hub that will be situated at the back of the Yzerfontein Sport and Recreation Club. The Club’s bar will be open, so come and join us for a drink and snack after the ride. Local Weskus band, Dans Frikkie Dans, will be performing during the day.

 

The Lucky Draw will take place at 12:30 at the Race hub.  You have to be in attendance to win a prize. Enter with your name and race nr at the I Love Yzer stand.
