The Argus Tour - Cape Town South Africa

An African Odyssey with great sightseeing tours included
Date:Sunday, March 11, 2018
Time:6AM until 1PM EST
Last Activity:Mar 3rd 2018

Thinking of doing this ride again next year Feel free to join me

Its the biggest timed cycling event in the world. Around 35 000 cyclists tackle this iconic beautiful course around the Cape Peninsula in the shadow of Table Mountain

Around 106kms (Depending on route changes) and 1600m elevation on closed roads

Cape Town is my home town and I have only cycled this event once before with Gervase and Debbie Barnes

 I would like to do this with my brother who has done every tour since its inception some 35 plus years ago

2 Brothers-inlaw will also be doing it. Sherwin, who some of you have met and Henry

Costs - Plane Fare- around $2700 in 2014 and now about $2000

Free Local knowledge

Accommodation - Maybe free with family or hotel stay if you wish

Food and Booze - Very cheap with NZ$ exchange rate

I'm thinking of flying out a week before and do a training ride around the course so time away about 2 weeks or longer if you want to sight see a bit more

Think about it and let me know who is keen to do this iconic event

P.S I will be flying the NZC colors
