So, my brother-in-law, John just completed his 21st Cape Argus tour, which is believe it or not, the worlds largest timed road race. I have done it twice in my road riding past, and it’s got to be one of the most beautiful rides around.

Also impressively, my brother-in-law’s brother, Doug, came second in the grand masters category of the Cape Epic. For those not in the know, widely considered as the toughest MTB ride around, 435 off-road miles in the Cape heat. Doug has come in the top 5 for all categories over the years.
