I just heard that in early February next year the council will start to repair the main road between Muizenburg and Fish Hoek and they will close this road for 16months. I am not sure if it sure.   That means that we must cycle up to Boyes Drive at by-pass. Tough Argus!!!!!

Actually I believe the work in question will only affect a short section of road at that stage, so the route will go right at Westlake, up Ou Kaaps, down through Sun Valley, then up over Black Hill to rejoin the original route.

 

Plans to reroute the finish to Newlands rugby stadium is still on hold pending the final Super 14 draw for 2008.

I dont think that they will close the road entirley, between Atlantic Road and the Kalk Bay end of Boyes drive there is simply no alternative route for residents. there will probably be partial closures and one way sections.

 

It would be cool to go over Boyes Drive, I have often wondered why the Argus didnt go that way anyway, it is way safer and more fun than the main road and would only be about 3 minutes slower.

I vote for the finish to be at the back entrance of the waterfront.

Don't think Newlands can handle 35000 cyclist + spectators, with it's huge amount of parking availible.Confused

I firmly back the plan to finish at Newlands.  For a start, it is right next to the brewerey, and that opens up endless hospitality options.

How is this for an Argus?

1 We cycle to Newlands, put our bikes in the bike park.

2 Have a tour of the brewery ? drink as much as we can.

3 Have someone drive us homeEvil%20Smile
