Training days

Deep breath in, exhale slowly.
Keep the legs spinning.
Keep the lungs open.
Head up, back straight.
Deep breath in, exhale slowly...

With training underway for the Cape Town Cycle Tour on 12 March, the above has been going through my head on a regular basis.

Every weekend sees the roads taken over by packs of cyclists, some heading around Cape Point, others over Chapman's Peak drive and up the dreaded Suikerbossie climb.

Below are a series of snaps taken around the Cape Peninsula while on my bike.
