On Saturday morning, if you were awake early enough, you might have seen a gang of six scooters tearing through the streets of Cape Town. That gang was myself, Nash, Misha, Serg, Simon, Alain and Rudi. You might think scooter gangs can't be hard core. We'll then you haven't seen ours.
It was bright and early on a beautifully clear morning as we met at ScootDr. in Waterkant Street to rent our bikes. Helmets on and bellies empty we set out along the beach road through Seapoint towards Camps Bay. The ride took us about 25 minutes of no traffic, stunning views and playful taunts from the only Capetonians around at that hour on a Saturday: cyclists.
I don't often hang out in Camps Bay, but if you're looking for a spot for breakfast on a Saturday morning, it's definitely the place to go. And if you're going to Camps Bay for breakfast, you better go to Cafe Caprice. I had the eggs royale which was absolutely delicious. If you follow this blog you probably know that I judge a place heavily on their ability to produce a fantastic hollandiase sauce. Well, Cafe Caprice, you get a gold star.
While the rest of our gang split to go about the rest of their Saturday business, Nash and I continued along the coastal road to Hout Bay. We stopped off at the Bay Harbour Market for a bit of a look around and a drink and continued on through to Constantia to hang out with Nash's folks and relax around the pool.
It was such an awesome day. If you are looking for a good way to see Cape Town or just a fun activity on a weekend I highly recommend hiring yourself a scooter and taking to the open road. I must have traveled that coastal road a hundred times, but there's something different about seeing it from the back of a bike.
