London to Cape Town is part of our new for 2021 cycling series. It is the shortest of the 5 events we have which range from 3470 to 10553 miles. So why not set your cycling goals for 2021 with a fabulous visual of just how far you have travelled with an amazing medal at the end.
So, get out on the trails with your MTB, hit the road with your road bike, or zwift/peloton your 8150 miles from London to Cape Town. With the Race the World App, which connects to strava and allows manually uploaded data it is easy to keep track of your miles and see them count down to zero.
Don't want to use the App ? Then keep your own record of your miles in whatever form you want and when you have finished, email the evidence to firstname.lastname@example.org.
How does it work ?

- Register a new account on the app, if it is the first time you have used it. Your password will need at least 1 Upper case, lower case, numerical and special characters in the password.
