The 2021 PPA Double Century

Welcome to the digital home of the Double Century, South Africa’s premier endurance road cycling event.

The Pedal Power Association and the Cape Town Cycle Tour Trust can’t wait to welcome all cyclists and support drivers to the 2021 edition of the PPA Double Century taking place on 27 November 2021 in Swellendam.

It takes a certain type of person to tackle a race such as this, and we commend you on the hours and dedication you’ve put in to make it to the start line. To those who are doing the DC for the first time (and the regulars) please keep it safe, before and during the event. As in previous years, conditions can be hazardous if the weather turns, and there will be roadworks again. You will find out more as you navigate our website, which should hopefully answer any questions you have about the event. If we have missed something, don’t hesitate to ask through one of our social media or direct contact channels.

We can’t wait to share the road with you. See you in Swellendam.
