Steve Attwell featured in the Cape Argus: The race – bike vs bus vs car!


This morning at 7am we set off from Tableview in a race between bikes vs busses vs cars, with the aim to see who is the quickest in rush hour traffic! Helen Zille was joined by the Mayoral Committee Member for Transport, the Roads and Stormwater; Councillor Brett Herron. Deputy Mayor Ian Neilson competed in the race by taking his car to town from the MyCitiBus stop, while ward councillor Joy McArthy travelled by bus.

Like every race, ever competitor got a  chance to lead the race, but unfortunately for the motorists the traffic was too congested and both the bus and the bikes finished by more than 10 minutes ahead. The bus, in turn, finished 9 minutes ahead of us. All Helens Argus training came into use today, as we screamed along the amazing cycle paths right into the Civic Centre in town. In the end the bus took 40 mins, we took 49 mins and the car took 57 mins.
