Day 104/164: Rest Day in Cafayate

I had had plans of doing a tour of the vineyards but decided I had had more than enough red wine the night before. I had a quiet day with food from the bakery for lunch, catching up on the blog and emails, and dozing.

I went out for dinner at 8.15pm. The restaurant was really quiet but the first 40 minutes they were setting up numerous tables. By the time I left there were over 200 patrons. A number of large tour groups.

On the TDA website they have changed their name from “Tour d’ Afrique” to “TDA Global Cycling” and they have introduced a new tour, plus amended an existing one.

The Trans-Oceania that was Indonesia and Australia is now Australia and New Zealand. The New Zealand section is mid-November to mid December 2016. Hopefully those of you who cycle may consider doing this, go to the website and have a look. From Auckland to Queenstown.

There is another ride that will appeal I think only to the very wealthy – a chance to ride a bike 100 kilometres in Antarctica, at the small cost of $70,000! Plus a training camp in Canada for two weeks, with the costs of that and then also airfare on top! There is a link about this on the website as well.

Also on the website was a video made on this trip with a number of the riders, about why they do these tours. I am not in the video but worth watching to see some of the other riders.

We have another full tour rider leaving us unexpectedly in Cafayate! Eric who is returning home.
