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…
