Spring is in the air. Undoubtedly a precursor for a wonderful and festive summer, and unfortunately the time is ticking towards swimsuit season (for those of us who have neglected the gym in search of a cup or a slice of solace) as well. Another year, another page of resolutions for the dustbin, and another Great Brak Grabadoo before the year is out. As thousands of holiday makers frequent the beaches, support the trade and drink in the sun of the Southern Cape, the organisers of the 9th annual Great Brak Grabadoo will be checking and double-checking final details for the run, walk and ride being held on 31 December 2011. For nine years, locals and visitors alike have come to know the famous orange t-shirts of this loved family fun race. Not only is the race fun and a lot of sports with everyone relatively stress free and in holiday mode, but it is the biggest cycle race in the Southern Cape that time of the year with on average 1000 participants every year. This fact is especially important for all those cyclists tackling the Argus, wanting to get in some needed kilometres in a safe and controlled environment before March. Things are really hotting up in the Southern Cape and all around the whispers of a bumper holiday season is starting to combine into a great big festive season buzz. Excitement is in the air and it’s all systems go for another wonderfully fun family day at the Great Brak Grabadoo.
