The one and only Rob Graham (director of LBTC!) recently visited South Africa over the festive period, which inspired this blog post. He was looking forward to shark cave diving when he arrived in Gansbaai, but alas, there were no sharks... I guess bikes will do though!
Rob took a 3-hour Fat Bike Tour in the wilderness of the sand dunes, a thrilling experience to really get the adrenalin pumping. Check out the picture attached!
Cycling is all the rage in South Africa, with more people incorporating cycling into their lifestyle than ever. Cape Town is leading the way with cycling infrastructure, with a record number of cycle lanes. It probably helps that South Africa is a great destination for cycling races - in March, 35,000 cyclists head to Cape Town to participate in the biggest individually timed race in the world, Cape Town Cycle Tour. The race is usually a whopping 109km long. They even host a kids tour, the Cape Town Cycle Tour Junior Tour, so all age ranges can get involved. And we can't forget them keen mountain bikers who participate in the ABSA Cape Epic Mountain Bike Race. Rob would definitely recommend South Africa for all the cycling enthusiasts out there. ;-)
