Cape Town Rocks - 2009/02/26

Cape Town boasts a rich and triumphant history, claiming a wealth in all fields cultural, academic and sporting. Imbued in this particularly proud history is the event that fills many of us with fear, some with hope and most with pride. The event, undoubtedly the flagship of Cape Town’s sporting presence on an international level, has once again sailed into Cape Town. Finally, the time for the Cape Argus/Pick ‘n Pay Cycle tour is here to once again inspire us with its mighty challenge. Once again people from all around the globe will be crowding the Cape Town Airport, bringing extra pressure to bear on the highly taxed airport staff with their bicycles. In fact the entire service industry will be highly taxed, with car rental companies within Cape Town scrambling to provide vehicles with adequate space, to Hotels preparing beds and storage. Luckily, most restaurants and bars will only be taxed after the event has been completed.

The cycle tour is currently in its 32nd year, and everything looks to be set for yet another spectacular race once again, kicking off on Sunday the 8th of March. The magic of the Argus is that it embraces not only the super-fit and serious of the world’s athletes. Children as young as 13 are allowed to participate and there is no age ceiling – last year’s oldest finisher was 83 at the time! Oftentimes celebrities are roped in to riding for a charity – many of the 5fm presenters are cycling this year – which also makes this event a salute to those who wish to help their fellow man. Unfortunately, Mother Nature is not always amenable to the wishes of man and there was very nearly a serious setback this year, officials had decided to close Chapman’s peak drive due to dangerous rock falls but human grit and determination has seen through to the end and everything looks to be on track for a fantastic race.

The Argus is yet another reason why Cape Town Rocks!
