International Cycle fever spreads goodwill at Table Bay, Capetown

A group of Gauteng, South Africa cyclists and 5 German tourists pumped for this yearâs Pick În Pay Cape Argus Cycle Tour made use of the opportunity and turned preparation for the big day into a charitable event raising some R150 000 for CANSA! This was the second consecutive year that the group, including five cyclists from Germany, rode the 1800 km between Sun City Resort in Gauteng and The Table Bay Hotel in Cape Town's V&A Waterfront in aid of the Cancer Association of South Africa.

The team, comprising four Sun International staffers and five members of the BMW Cycling Club in Munich, managed to raise R25 000 more than last year. Two qualified nursing sisters and a physiotherapist took care of unwanted strains, aches and pains along the route which required the cyclists to cover on average 150 km per day.

The team, with the exception of one member, cycle only for recreational and fitness purposes which makes this a tremendous triumph, especially as all participants went on to participate in the annual Pick În Pay Cape Argus Cycle Tour just two days after arriving in Cape Town.
