We have just returned from our annual pilgrimage to Cape Town for the Cape Town Cycle Tour 2015, and while it didn’t quite go to plan this year due to huge bush fires ravaging the Cape Peninsula in the week before the race, the event organisers still did a fantastic job with the #Showyoucaresolidarityride!
Sadly, the fires wiped out the possibility of cycling the traditional 109km Cape Town Cycle Tour route along the stunning coastline of the Western Cape, but that didn’t stop some 30,000 cyclist heading out to show their support for the firefighters and those who had lost their homes in the shortened 47km Solidarity Ride.
A short sprint from the city centre to Muizenberg and back, this year’s Cape Town Cycle Tour will certainly be one to remember, and while it was somewhat disappointing for those who had travelled from the other side of the world to participate in the World’s largest timed cycle event – we now have the perfect excuse to return to Cape Town next year!
