bike it or not

so it’s that time of the year again for me…the time when I join thousands of like-minded (read: crazy) people and pedal around the coastline of Cape Town for hours on end, kilometre after kilometre, desperately hoping for the finish line to come into sight. The Cape Argus Cycle Tour is on Sunday and I wonder every year why on earth I’m putting myself through 109km of a numb bum. But then I finish and I’m very proud of myself for pedalling all that way. And actually, Cape Town is pretty darn gorgeous, so the scenery is always sensational. So although I will look nothing like these street chic bicyclists on Sunday, I’m going to try and stay inspired…

    Good luck and I admire people like you for all this effort and being so consistent. Sports! A big gap on my goal list for…uhm…the past five years? Enjoy the scenery, must be amazing!

      Thanks Gudy! It’s one of those incredible rides that is so weather dependent. The wind can really howl in Cape Town – which it did this year – and so it felt like a massively exhausting ride from beginning to end! But we did it and let’s hope next year is better…
