Feedback on the Cape Epic : Day 8, Stage 7 – the Finale

Day 8 and the fan caravan is starting to look and feel a little threadbare… We are all ready to go home now. Everything is dirty – even the poor car has never seen this much dirt: the mud is actually dropping off in places. Caught up with Mac and the Techies at the Cycle-Lab tent. They are finished. Many …

Feedback on the Cape Epic: Day 7, Stage 6 – we’re almost home

Woke up sometime around 4am and it really sounded as if it was raining… Or was it?

Mercifully today’s route offered a bit more variation – a little bit of track through the pine forests – bit along Baine’s kloof pass, bits of very dusty single track, …

Argus Cycle Tour Feedback

I volunteer at Christine Revell Children’s Home, spending two mornings a week assisting during crèche time with ‘Group B’ (kids between the ages of 18 months and 3yrs). The little faces of ‘my kids’ have been my inspiration to get to the top of the hills while training for my first Cape Argus Pick ’n Pay Cycle Tour with my …
