Cape Town Cycle Tour cancelled...
As alluded to in a previous post, things took an unexpected turn on race day on Sunday, 12th March. What would have been the 40th running of the Cape Town Cycle Tour was cancelled early in the morning of the race due to storm-force winds, gusting in excess of 100km/h, blowing around the Cape Peninsula.
It was probably a wise move, but there were still many disappointed cyclists. We had reached the centre of town, from where the Cycle Tour starts, when we got the SMS message that the Cycle Tour was cancelled. Candace and I, although a little disappointed, decided to roll with it and so we enjoyed a lovely extra, unplanned day with family. :) More on that in the next few posts!
I am a 32-year-old South African whose journey with Mercy Ships began in 2007 when I joined the M/V "Africa Mercy" in Liberia. I met my wife Candace in Sierra Leone in 2011 and together we served with Mercy Ships until December 2012. We worked with Mercy Vision in South Africa during 2013, and are now settling into a new life together in the USA.
If you would like to support Candace and I, please send us an e-mail to the address listed on my profile. Thanks!
We are now no longer serving with Mercy Ships, so please don't send any more mail to Candace and I on the ship. Thanks!
