Cape Town - What a bummer! The Cape Town cycle tour has been cancelled due to extreme weather conditions of 100km/h along certain parts of the route  - after months of preparations cyclists and their supporters are clearly gutted - See Sport24's full statement from the organisers here.

But keep in mind you're still in one of the most amazing destinations in the world - and there are many ways to spend a Sunday in the Mother City. 

Traveller24 has a few suggestions for you to check out: 


SEE: Some of the best underwater views at the Two-Oceans aquarium - offering participants student rate access today

Also, Kahn Morbee from the Parlotones, Donovan Copley from Hot Water, BlackByrd, Farryl Purkiss perform at the Kirstenbosch Summer Sunset Concert – Cape Folk ‘n’ Acoustic Music Festival.

DO: Visit Market on the Wharf at the V&A Waterfront for good food, good vibes and good times. 

TASTE: Food and wine pairing at the Robertson Hands on Harvest is a nice way to enjoy your Sunday.

WATCH: All race participants can get free access to the Cricket at Newlands

We know you're an active bunch - if you happen to be spending one or two days in the city go check out one of the popular hikes when it's not affected by the wind!

Head out to the Winelands:

Haute Cabriere new chef duo delight

The Von Arnim family of the iconic Haute Cabrière estate has partnered with two of the most talented chefs in the winelands in a rebirth of one Haute Cabrière Cellar Restaurant.  Chefs Nic van Wyk and Westley Muller recently launched a new menu of modern, classically-inspired dishes from the Haute kitchen and each dish serves up an inkling of their honed skills and decades of experience. 

The new a la carte offering more than compliments some of SA's finest wines on offer - expect twists on super classics, an exceptional sensory yet stunningly simplistic dining experience and definitely inclined to breaking some of the rules - serving up the Haute Cabriere philosophy of Sun-Soil-Vine-Man on the plate.
