Tour of Ara 2017

  • Matjiesfontein

The Tour of Ara, named for the Southern Hemisphere constellation of Ara, is a prestige race that is ridden mostly on South African-built steel racing bicycles in the proud tradition of the early Italian multi-day stage races.

The Tour follows a gruelling new 800 km dirt-road route over six days through the beautiful but harsh semi-desert Karoo every year, and is as much a race as it is an exploration and celebration of this unique landscape and the people that live there.
