Route Description

 

The circular route the Old Mutual Wealth Double Century currently takes is the 11th version the event has used, and will be traversed for the 18th time in 2024. It offers the best balance between route toughness, accommodation options, overall beauty and quiet roads. It starts in Swellendam and visits Suurbraak and Tradouw Pass, Op de Tradouw, Montagu and Ashton, while side-swiping Barrydale, Robertson and Bonnievale before heading back to Swellendam. Riders will experience a mix of dairy farmland, canola fields, mountain passes, a hint of the Karoo, vineyards, river-crossings, historical towns and plenty of picture-postcard moments as they pedal their way round this special corner of the Western Cape.
