Last ride in Cape Town

Cycling Nirvana

Here I sit in what is an unseasonably sunny London. The bad news is that the weather is definitely not going to hold out. The good news is that, since the famous exploits of Messrs Wiggins and Hoy, cycling in England has never been more popular. This place is literally crawling with bikes. What it sorely lacks, however, is places to ride them. Places like Chapman's Peak. Sigh.

I am going to sorely miss this little stretch of heaven. Everyone who owns a bike in Cape Town (and beyond) should consider an acquaintance with this road an absolute priority.
