Distance: 92km
Climbing: 1500m
Start Location: CPUT Wellington Campus
Finish Location: Meerendal Wine Estate

On Stage 1 riders encountered one of the Absa Cape Epic’s legendary climbs, Groenlandberg. On Stage 7 riders came face-to-face with a climb that  similarly entered Epic folklore – the Paardeberg. The stage started with 25km of fast riding on farm and district roads. After Water Point 1 the route went straight into the climb – and continued on it for nearly 6km. The descent was sharp as the climb and with loads of unstable surfaces and rutted sections.  At 82km the route swooped down through Meerendal’s legendary trails towards the estate’s historic Manor House and the finish line glory of the 2015 Absa Cape Epic Grand Finale.
