The Segment

Red Hill In to Lookout is our featured segment for Episode 2 of Contego Segment Hunter. Watch Oliver Munnik and current KOM holder Charles Keey explain the finer points of this segment.

There are four riders currently tied at the top of the leaderboard. Interestingly, they were all set on the same day during a hill climb challenge event back in 2012. Ashleigh Moolman-Pasio holds the QOM with a time of 8 minutes and 10 seconds, which happens to be the same pace as the KOM holders, Carl Pasio (Ashleigh's husband), Charles Keey, and Jean de Villiers.

Charles Keey reckons this time will be comfortably beat by our episode 2 challenger. What do you think?

Riding the Red Hill In to Lookout segment

How do I ride this segment?

Go out there and ride the segment to get your name into the draw for R30,000 of Contego unit trusts (further details below).

The usually traffic light Red Hill is a good option if you want to add some climbing to your peninsula rides. It's also a popular spot for interval training.


The segment starts on the Simon's Town side of Red Hill. From this side, you come off Main Road (M4) just outside Simon's Town to start the Redhill Road climb. The Red Hill In to Lookout segment begins a couple hundred metres from the start of Redhill Road. Check out the segment for details about the start and end points.

Please ride safely and adhere to all the rules of the road. There is no prize for being the fastest on the segment, so no need to act recklessly.
