CTC supporter Ian Ducat tells us about his Cape Argus exploits in South Africa, one of the largest sporting events in the world.

After a 40+ year cycling ‘career’ and never having entered a competitive event I broke with tradition in 2008.  That’s why, before I left the UK in early February, I was training 4 or 5 times a week. Not exactly preparation for the Olympics but an hour a day was enough to lose a bit of weight and regain some fitness (modest reductions in wine consumption helped too!)
