Celebs share Argus madness
Cape Town - Politicians, rugby players and TV presenters completed the Cape Argus Pick n Pay Cycle Tour on Sunday.
TV personality Liezel van der Westhuizen said it was an "incredible day", even though she had to walk for a bit after getting cramps going up Chapman's Peak.Charity
Van der Westhuizen, who rode a special bicycle equipped with an iPad, completed the cycle tour for charity.
It was the task of supporters to 'like' Pick n Pay's Facebook page in order for Van der Westhuizen to progress 10m on her 110km route.
For every 'like' she could move forward 10m and for every 10km (1 000 'likes') she donated a bicycle to Velokhaya Life Cycling Academy in Cape Town.
She wrote the following on Pick n Pay's Facebook page
on Monday: "To all the Pick'nPay Facebook Fans! Wow! You rock! Thank you for the great support you gave me on the #pnplikebike project. We raised 20bicycles for Velokhaya with all your support. THANK YOU (sic)"Rugby playersVictor Matfield
, former Springbok and Bulls player, participated in the Argus Cycle Tour for the first time. "It was really amazing," he said.
"One of the highlights was in Hout Bay where people played music, and you also knew - from here it's downhill."
Former WP rugby captains Corné Krige and Tiaan Strauss, completed the race together on mountain bikes.
According to Krige, he's participated in the cycle tour in strong winds so many times that the hot weather didn't bother him at all.Lipstick
