On Sunday 20 November, thousands of cyclists will take part in the 947 Ride Joburg cycle race.

The annual cycling event will mean many of Johannesburg’s roads will be closed.

The race starts and finishes at FNB Stadium in Soweto, from 5:30am until around 5pm.

Watch the race route:

The 97-kilometre race will then move through the historic township before turning on the N17 towards Main Reef Road.

From Soweto to Kyalami

Cyclists will then get onto the M1 South and race towards Woodmead in northern Joburg.

The route continues in Kyalami, with a loop on the famous racetrack, before turning onto Main Road in Lonehill.

Competitors will then start heading back towards the finish line on Witkoppen Road and move through Fourways, Randburg, Saxonwold and Braamfontein, before racing towards Gold Reef City on the M1 South highway.

Cyclists will then get onto Nasrec road before finishing the race inside FNB Stadium.
