The Cape Town Cycle Tour was shortened this year, following the devastating fires over the peninsula. While Sunday 8th was clear of fire, the terrain would have been unsafe, with ash and embers on the road, ready to be whipped op in any gust.
But thanks to the firefighters the race could proceed. Not as a true race – no records could be set on the shortened course – but in honour of those who had made it safe to race again.
And we were there, as usual, marshalling the cyclists at the end of the M3. Just, being Rotarians, and having fun!
