Cyclists who are familiar with the Cradle of Humankind will recognise sections of the route, but it notably excludes the Hillsnacks and Sterkfontein climbs. As a result, it brings down the total ascent quite significantly compared to other events on the West Rand.

From Montecasino, the 90km route goes out on Witkoppen Road, past Northgate and turns right onto Beyers Naude Drive. The next left turn is before the N14 into Muldersdrift. The route runs through Muldersdrift and turns right at the 4-way stop and right again at the T-junction towards Kloofzicht Lodge.

 At the circle, it turns left and left again at the Rhino and Lion Park circle. At the Kromdraai Cash store it continues straight towards Hendrik Potgieter and turns right. Then it’s a right turn at the Engen Garage T-junction and straight on to the next right turn which brings cyclists past the Sterkfontein Caves.

Back at the Kromdraai Cash Store T-junction the route turns left, and left again at the circle past the Rhino and Lion Park. At the traffic circle on the other side of the Cradle Restaurant, riders turn right and climb past Valverde before turning left onto the Elandsdrift Road.

 Then the route then accesses Montecasino via Cedar Road. Cedar Road presents a safe and controlled routing back to Montecasino and this final section is all on double laned roads, which creates a safe race flow for the event. . The finish is on the outdoor events arena, which rider’s access via Montecasino Boulevard.

 The50km route continues on Beyers Naude past the Muldersdrift left turn to meet the 90km at the Elandsdrift turn.
