If you have decided to take the plunge and join our Cape Argus 2014 Training Programme, here is an overview of what you can expect on Day 3:
Wednesday – 5 March 2014 – Gordon’s Bay (80km) Road Bike
On day three of our Cape Argus 2014 Training Programme, we will be heading over to the eastern side of False Bay, and start our warm up just below the Steenbras Dam Reservoir in the seaside town of Gordon’s Bay.
This is arguably one of the most beautiful stretches of coastline in South Africa, and there is no better way to prepare for the Argus than training along this route.
The first obstacle of this ride will be Clarence Drive, which will give the legs a good test, but you will be well rewarded for your efforts as you descend along the pristine beaches of Kogelbay.
The next challenge will be the steep incline into the small town of Rooi Els, after which you will be faced with the windy plains towards Betty’s Bay. If you are not used to riding against coastal winds, this training tour will give you plenty of time to practice!
On the way back, if you are up for it, we can escort you up to the Steenbras Dam Reservoir where you will have a stunning view of False Bay- the perfect place to have the lunch we have prepared for you!
After lunch, we will return to Cape Town fully prepared for this part of the route on Cape Argus Day.
