Welcome to the InsideRRR preview of the Cape Town city centre to Kalk Bay course on Fulgaz by Adriaan Master and Bianca Le Roux. Please read on to see my thoughts on the route, course profile and images, and my own ride data.
The Cape Town city centre to Kalk Bay course by Adriaan Master and Bianca Le Roux on Fulgaz is a rolling point to point ride along the northern Cornish coast, starting at the Castle of Good Hope in Cape Town, and crossing the Cape of Good Hope to finish at Kalk Bay. The ride was the first stage of the Virtual Cape Town Cycle Tour on Fulgaz in 2021.
The ride is filmed at sunrise, leading to some orange skies in the early part if the ride. The scenery is dominated by views to the Mountains of the Table Mountain National Park, with a few fleeting but superb views out to sea in the latter part of the ride. The ride starts off with a series of 3 climbs at 5-6%, before returning back to sea level and riding largely flat in the second half.
The video is recorded in stabilised 4K resolution, recorded at a sensible speed to avoid comedic motions in shot, although I struggled to maintain decent speed in the climbs. All videos on Fulgaz are of an exceptionally high quality - but this one really stood out for me.
I hope that you enjoy the ride - let us know what you think in the comments box below.
