94.7 Telkom Cycle Challenge 2016

Post by Alan on Sun Nov 20, 2016 1:18 am

The cycle challenge no longer starts near us but the cyclists still ride past the same area where they started, so it still caused traffic chaos. This year was a record entry of 30,000 cyclists, and the distance is actually 95kms.

I took a stroll down to Waterfall Corner where the finish used to be to watch and photograph some of the cyclists passing. The photos are not that great, not sure what has gone wrong with the focus on my Canon, but it is terrible. Will have to take it in at some stage for them to have a look at it.

Here are some of the photos that I took:
