Zwift has just announced that there will be an Absa Cape Epic event again. This is a yearly event that is mainly on gravel, but there is some road. There will be 8 different parts of the series that take place from October 4th – October 17th. This event helps raise money to donate to help kids get to school, participate in sports, and have better job opportunities. For each of the 8 parts there will be a Zwift Power up podcast featuring cyclists such as Victor Campenaerts, Doug Ryder, Kevin Vermaak (Founder of the Absa Cape Epic), Ashleigh Moolman-Pasio, Nic Dlamini. Some of the events will be on mountain bikes. and others will be on Qhubeka Buffalo bikes. The unlock on this ride is the latest Absa Cape Epic kit, all you have to do is complete any of the events. Cape Epic, the people behind this event, have also put together a promo video. The stages are relatively short, around 5-12 miles without lead in, the max of 16 miles with lead in I believe. It is not a race, it is a ride at your own pace, it will likely be a pretty big event, so there will probably be groups spread out throughout the course.
