With 48 hours of glorious free time in the beautiful and exciting Cape Town, there is time to see and do so much, Mother City-lovers! If I had to narrow down my choices, though, I’d prefer to be out and about on the streets of my hometown, enjoying the sunshine, the culture, the people and the oh-so-delicious cuisine.

Join me at the following events and activities from Friday 8 to Sunday 10 March, 2013, and discover why the more you explore Cape Town, the more beautiful she becomes.

Cape Argus Pick n Pay Cycle Tour 2013

The largest individually timed cycling event in the world, the popular annual Cape Argus Pick n Pay Cycle Tour makes a welcome return to Africa’s sports capital this Sunday.

Spectators, if you’re not searching for places to avoid the south-easter wind that usually accompanies this beloved event, do keep an eye out for Virgin Atlantic’s enigmatic CEO, Richard Branson, and other local and international celebs participating in the race and enjoying the scenic views.
