KZN Summer Series - Queen Sibiya Classic


The second race, the Queen Sibiya Classic, is a 118-kilometre race again starting at Midmar Dam and will see the peloton climbing to Mooi River before racing back to the finish point at Midmar Dam, passing through Howick. Although a road race, close to 4.5-kilometres of it is on a hard gravel road – an African twist on the iconic Strade Bianche race in Italy. The race is named after the Queen Sibiya, who stood up to an abusive husband - one of the first historical steps leading to the empowerment of women in the country today.
