Jozi Automotive Bling

Up in Joburg at the moment. CAR mag roadshow.... which means I'm shooting the breeze with folk who sell shit like this...
McLaren MP4-12C with full carbon McLaren Special Ops body kit. Better looking than a 650S...

Cyclocrossing across The Peninsula

Great ride on Sunday with my old mate Robert Vogel. Rob is the driving force behind Table Mountain Bikers, the club/social activist/beer-drinking-club that I have been part of since inception. We've been buddies for 20-odd years and used to form a fearsome doubles combination in the W. Cape tennis leagues. As I recall, we were unbeaten. These days, though, we ride bicycles.

And on this day we rode 130km with 3000m of climbing (says Strava). I have never ridden this far on the road. Stuck some slicks on the Cotic cyclocross bike and sucked Rob's wheel for most of it...
