With just 30 days to go until the Cape Town Cycle Tour 2015 gets underway, we simply cannot wait to make our way down to the Mother City for this spectacular one-day event!
To train for the cycle tour and acclimatize to the gorgeous Cape Town weather after months of sleet, rain and snow, we are flying down to South Africa a whole 10 days before the race, which means we are outta here in just 3 weeks!
Numerous famous people have taken part in the Cape Town Cycle Tour (previously the Cape Argus) over the years, such as Lance Armstrong, Richard Branson and Matt Damon, and this year will be no exception! The event organisers revealed last week that our very own Mark Cavendish and Australian racing cyclist Mark Renshaw will be participating this year, so if you are heading for a record time, you could end up sharing Suikerbossie with a pro!
Tour de France Champ Jan Ullrich cycled the Cape Argus last year, and while we didn’t get to see him during the cycle tour (way too fast for us!), we did get to meet him the following day on top of Lion’s Head Mountain – so remember to keep your eyes open when you are out and about in Cape Town – it’s a real hot spot for celebs, with the likes of Charlize Theron and Leonardo DiCaprio frequently spotted in the über cool Camps Bay!
With just 30 days to go between now and Sunday 8th March 2015, it’s time to step up the spinning bike regime, throw out those last remaining chocolates from Christmas, and get in shape for the world’s largest timed cycle race – Cape Town Cycle Tour, here we come!
