The 2015 Cape Town Cycle Tour was shortened from 109km to a 47km circular route due to the fires raging on the South Peninsula.
Chapman’s Peak route was ruled out for the 2015 event.
The route started at the Civic Centre as per usual towards the M3 to the end and back the same way to a slightly altered finish in Green Point.
A smouldering landscape served as a source of inspiration and pride representing the heroism of the men and women who put their bodies in the line of the fire.
High fiving the firefighters lined along the Newlands forest was a heart warming moment, they looked alot more tired than we were!
