Cycling fanatics

If you live in Cape Town you’re sure to have spotted hundreds of cyclists on the road lately, the reason being is that this Sunday is the Argus Cycle Tour. 35 000 cyclists are due to ride this amazing scenic race around the Cape Peninsula.

I’ve put together some bicycle pics for you and as if the health benefits aren’t enough, don’t these fashionable cyclists make bike riding look fun? Obviously bike culture is way bigger in Europe than it is here and I still find it amazing that cyclists get on their bikes in rain and snow! I’m usually scared of a bit of wind! Just looking at these photos though is inspiration enough for me to get on my bike, it’s long overdue! How about you, are you a cycling fanatic or just a casual rider? I definitely fall into the second category, cycling for pleasure not as a sport.

So I have to work this Saturday but I’ll be out there watching the race on Sunday and shouting some support, nothing like some community spirit! What are your plans for the weekend? I hope you have fun, enjoy it!

    It really makes me smile whenever I see a sweet looking guy handsomely dressed in a suit riding his bike to work. In my part of town, I see nicely dressed people riding on their bikes very often! It's fun!

    Speaking of biking fanatics, that would be my husband. He is actually a cycling coach and trains a lot of folks who love to do triathlons and marathons. Then there is me – a leisurely Sunday ride is my speed. enjoy the race!
