The 99er Cycle Tour and MTB Challenge first took place in 1999. The race is organized and hosted by the El Shaddai Christian School in Durbanville and the event is the main fund raising activity for the school.
Since 2003, the 99er Cycle Race has been an Official Premier Seeding event for The Cape Town Cycle Tour (affectionately called "The Argus" by cyclists). There are only 4 road events in the Western Cape that have this prestigious status.
The 99er Cycle Tour takes place a month before The Cape Town Cycle Tour, and is an excellent preparation race for the world famous event. The 99er’s legendary climbs of Vissershok and Odendaal provide a great challenge and once a cyclist has conquered these hills anything is possible!
A total of R73 000, raised from donations and profits from the 2015 event was donated to the education based organizations supported by the race: Partners for Possibility, Inside Out, Olympians Social Development and Education and The El Shaddai School Scholarship Fund.
The focus to support education linked initiatives ties in with El Shaddai Christian School’s desire to impact the wider community.
The first ever 99er Kiddies Bike Ride held in 2015 was a huge success, with over 80 enthusiastic youngsters participating! Engel and Volkers are once again the sponsors of this fun event. In 2016 there will be 2 races:
