Johannesburg - Traffic will be interrupted in Johannesburg to allow for the 94.7 Cycling Challenge, the Johannesburg Metro Police Department said on Saturday.

"Motorists are required to look for cyclists who will be participating in the race... and officers will be on duty to direct the traffic," said JMPD chief superintendent Wayne Minnar.

The race will take place on Sunday.

The M1 highway would be blocked off at Buccleuch interchange as early as 03:00 ahead of the race which begins at 05:30. Minnaar said the race would begin on Woodmead Drive.

The cyclists would join the M1 South, pass through parts of the CBD and the race would end at Waterfall Country Estate next to Kyalami, he said.

Parking had been arranged at Polo fields, K60 parking area and Megawatt Park.
The race ends at 16:00.
