2014 Cape Argus
Murray Tenhope, Damon Wiseman and Sebastian Dawber completed the Argus on 12 March 2014. There was lots of wind and the first 40-50 kms were very difficult, riding directly into the wind. However, they kept together as a team during this time, and managed to help and spur each other on to keep going at a decent pace. They also all rode Chapman’s Peak and Suikerbossie, passing many walking cyclists and sticking to their commitment not to get off their bikes! Check out their adventure here Thank you to an awesome team, for raising R25 200 for Hearts of Hope.
