History of Argus Cycle Tour in Cape Town-->
Not many people know the origins behind the Argus Cycle tour. Back in 1977 , the Big Ride In was started as a protest to campaign for cycling paths in and around Cape Town. Every year in Cape Town 35,000 cyclists take to the roads. This year, organisers received 40000 entries. Yesterday was the 33rd Argus cycle tour and yet we still waiting for adequate cycle paths and lanes to make it safer for cyclists to use the roads. World Active Mobility Day is taking place on the 14th May 2011 to re-establish the roots of the 1977 Big Ride in campaign.
