The tourism industry and small businesses in Pietermaritzburg have been dealt a huge blow as the Amashova race snubs the city for this year’s event.

The famous cycling event which usually attracts more than 400 cyclists annually, makes a return this year. However, it is scheduled to take place in Durban on Sunday, October 24.

Last year’s race did not happen due to Covid-19 restrictions.
