my first book & where everything started

May 2020

Our journey to Cape Town began on February 20th 2020.


On March 8th 2020, I participated in the Cape Town Cycle Tour for the first time. 109 km around the beautiful peninsula. 

On March 26th 2020, South Africa went for its very first 21 days of lockdown. 

As I counted down the days while walking up and down the stairwell of the building - we were allowed absolutely no time outside, not even to exercise - 

I was really looking forward to the end of the lockdown and being back on the road again. I could not wait to go on group rides with my South African friends.


The 21 days passed. The lockdown got extended. 

Initially for another 14 days. Overall, however, South Africa was in lockdown for the next 4 months.
