A stunning video tour of the Cape Argus/ Pick 'n Pay Cycle Tour route has been made, as the date for the annual race creeps closer.

A collaborative project between Game On and Rockets Compression Sportswear, the video takes you through the 110km route in just nine minutes.

Video: Cape Argus Pick n Pay Cycle Tour Route 

Angela Brooks, who was involved in the project, says: "We drove the entire Argus Route and then edited the clip and sped the footage up 15 times."

The clip was made using a GoPro HD camera attached to a car in order "to give a riders point of view of the historic race."

Now in its 35th year, the race (which is on March 11) will start at Hertzog Boulevard and end at Western Boulevard in Green Point, and will see 35 000 riders take part.

The video does not start on Hertzog Boulevard because there were road works on the day of filming.
