The King Price Race to the Sea is a 164 km gravel bike race from Franschhoek to Benguela Cove in Hermanus. With 2330 m of elevation over 164 km, this is a gravel challenge worth conquering. Riders will roll out of the picturesque village of Franschhoek against a dramatic backdrop of majestic mountainscapes. After conquering the Franschhoek Pass, riders will encounter an endless sea of bright yellow canola fields all the way to the coast. Cycling South Africa (CSA) has also confirmed that the race will serve as the SA gravel bike championship for 2022. Riders over the age of 19 are eligible to compete in the inaugural Gravel bike championship, which will likely be a showdown between the top road and mountain bike racers in South Africa. Riders will be able to compete using a gravel bike or mountain bike. For more info and to enter, visit www.racetothesea.co.za.
