Press release – 27 February 2015

South Africa’s premier lifestyle venue, Shimmy Beach Club, is offering a delicious (and filling) Carbo Load lunch on 6 and 7 March from 12pm until 4pm, ahead of the Cape Town Cycle Tour. Cyclists who provide proof of registration for the Cycle Tour on arrival at Shimmy can tuck into the exclusive menu offering.

The chef has devised a selection of main meals for the serious cyclists, as well as those who are partaking for fun and want to enjoy a hearty lunch with family or friends before the race. Guests can look forward to a chicken or carbonara pasta, bacon and banana pizza, burgers and steak, as well as an invigorating coconut and banana smoothie, or a well-deserved pre-race beer, with menu prices ranging between R80 and R110.

That’s not all.. Shimmy’s maintenance team will be on hand to wash, brush-up and sparkle your bike at no extra cost, while you enjoy lunch.

Enjoy the idyllic Atlantic oceanview and sea breeze before the big race day, while you treat yourself to some of our favourite meals. Feel the sand between your toes and relax in good company enjoying Shimmy’s balance between a lively atmosphere and laid-back Cape Town.

To book, email or call 021 200 7778.

Friends and family members who would rather skip out on the Carbo Load menu can order from our sumptuous a la carte menu. Shimmy introduced its new Summer menu in October, adding healthier meals and simple yet sexy flavour and plating. Chef Adrian Cook, says, “We consider how food makes you feel. Eating a wonderful meal should make you happy, and enjoying it with special people at Shimmy Beach Club makes it an experience.”

Shimmy will be screening the Cape Town Cycle Tour on Sunday 8 March from 11am for fans who would like to watch the race progress.
