This weekend around 35 000 cyclists will take part in the Cape Town Cycle Tour. Due to the fires raging in Cape Town, organisers have been forced to shorten and rework the route. We bring you all the road closures in effect this weekend.
The Cape Town Cycle Tour may have been cut to 47km, but there is nothing stopping you loading up on on some much-needed fuel before taking on the historic ride this year. Check out these 11 carb-friendly spots in the Mother City!
The Cape Town Cycle Tour announced on Wednesday that the route would be dramatically cut as a result of the fires raging across the Southern Peninsula. Cycle Tour Director David Bellair said that the decision had not been taken lightly and that it was done so with the safety of the race’s participants in mind.
Bloggers love South Africa – we know this from our #LoveCapeTown campaign. This campaign saw us bringing four international travel bloggers (@traveldudes @velvetescape @landlopers and @wildjunket) to Cape Town in July 2012 during a social media drive in which Capetonians interacted with the bloggers and their followers, telling the stories of Cape Town and her people.
