When I first took Bruce's bike out for a ride several years ago, I simply rode from Park View down to the McCarthy traffic lights and back again. I kept this up and eventually managed to do it in less than 18 minutes, a personal goal I had set for myself. Then I decided to accompany Bruce to the Karkloof Classic and enter the 20 km race. To get fit I started to ride route 1 a couple of times a week. Then last year I decided to do the 2011 Shova and completed my training my doing two laps of route 2 a couple of times and end with a three lap ride.

When I entered the Argus Cycle Tour, I thought I best use some additional routes to improve my stamina and climbing capability. The remaining routes are the result of that.

Unfortunately I now have to many paths and it is all rather confusing. Aplogies for that. I will probably redo the route maps such that each contains the map only shows the relevant path, and of course profile.
