Cape Town Argus Cycle race 2011.
This year we had the most wonderful day to ride the Argus. Very little wind and cool weather. Very nervous at the start of the race. My partner had a tummy bug the day before the race and decided to ride on the day. Only to realize she had no strength in her legs when we went up Hospital bend. From then on it was battle all the way to Noordhoek at the bottom of Chapmans Peak where she decided to call it a day. Now only able to go at 12km an hour on the level road. We stopped at the cutoff point half an hour before they closed it. At this stage she could hardly stand on her feet. End of 2011 Argus. Bus ride back to Cape Town. The kids made it all the way to the finish.
