Mountains Simonstown

Calm slowly returns to Green Point after a day of over 35 000 bicycles finishing up their race here. The Cape Argus Cycle tour hi-jacks our city one day every year. Thousands of riders in funny fluorescent outfits shut down our roads and cycle around the peninsula and back.

Even Lance Armstrong was here. They bring their families and friends and bicycles with them. A festive feeling pervades with flags and crowds, commentators, TV crews and loud music.

Tomorrow they start dismantling the gear and by the next day this visible mass of grandstands, marquees and banners and will all be gone.
