With just over five weeks to go until the Cape Argus Pick n Pay Cycle Tour 2014 (that’s 39 days, 12 hours, and 32 minutes for anyone who’s interested!), the pressure is on to train, train, and then train some more, in preparation for the world’s largest timed cycle race.
I’ve whinged and whined about how difficult it is for us European’s to train in the Northern Hemisphere during our winter months, but now the excitement is starting to kick in, and I can’t believe that in just four weeks time, we will be on our way to South Africa!
Cycling in snow is a challenge (especially on a road bike), so we’ve been making the most of the mountains with brisk winter walks, and while we probably won’t be tiptop condition for the Cape Argus on 9th March, we will be ready, willing, and hopefully able to complete the 109km route!
If you are still ‘umming and arring’ about the 2014 Cape Argus, the time has arrived to make your final decision. South African entrants can still enter by riding for a charity, and International cyclists have until 21st February to secure their place on this amazing event!
Sun, sea, sand and cycling awaits… so why not go for it, and book your place now. You won’t regret it!
