Urban Cycle Classic Hosted by Mall of Africa - Coming Soon!
The enthusiasm for Road cycling competitions began at the end of the XIX century and has not stopped growing since. Some big races attract around tens of million spectators and are watched by TV viewers all over the world.
The first race officially recorded dates back to 31 May 1868 at the ‘Parc de Saint-Cloud’, in Paris, and was won by the British rider, James Moore.
The first city to city race took place on 7 November 1869: Paris-Rouen. James Moore, once again the winner, rode 123 kilometers in 10h. 25 min. The organisers’ intention was to promote cycling and to demonstrate that the bicycle enabled considerable distances to be covered.
Road cycling has been part of the Olympic Games program since its first edition in 1896.
Bicycles (Road or Mountain Bikes) for adults or kids are globally in high demand due to the current existing popularity and lifestyle trend.
