Cycle Across Canada goes to South Africa – again!

It seems only the other day that we were in Cape Town for the  The Cape Argus Cycle Tour but February saw us once again back in Cape Town. It was very expensive to take a bicycle from Canada to Cape Town, so a friend of Dave’s purchased a used bike in Cape Town for CDN$300 and this was fine for the event! Still have the bike stored with a friend “in case” we go again!! Here are a few photos from the day:
