Colourful characters at the Cape Argus Pick n Pay Cycle Tour

About 35 000 cyclists from around the world, including seven-time Tour de France winner, Lance Armstrong, took part in Sunday’s Cape Argus Pick n Pay Cycle Tour.

There was excellent spirit among the competitors, many of whom were more interested in the beautiful scenery and social side of the race, than their finishing time.

Below, we picture some of the more colourful characters who took part:
