It would also seem Ramaphosa is practising what he preaches. He claims he wants South Africans to live a healthy lifestyle, and here he is, leading the way. I want to encourage all South Africans to lead a healthy lifestyle. Locals have never had such a good chance of popping out to the shop and being overtaken by the President.

The second — and most popular, especially with visitors to the city — is through the grounds of Belfast Castle , which also offers impressive views across the Lagan Valley and the city itself. The third approach is the shortest and least steep — a rise of odd metres in just over a mile — beginning on the far side of the summit in the car park of Cave Hill country park on the Upper Hightown Road.
This approach is also the most barren.

As the path continues towards the summit, the trees — sparse enough near the car park — give out completely. From here on it is gorse and brambles, which of course at this time of year means blackberries.
The path eventually narrows as it leads to a black metal gate such as might open on to a meadow, rather than what is essentially a cliff top. The fencing running off to the left and right of it looks about as substantial as telephone wire. On the far side of the gate, the path has been stepped for the final couple of dozen metres to the summit. A natural promontory, augmented by a ditch millennia past, makes for a formidable defensive position.
It also gives you a view that renders the divisions in the city directly below as inconsequential as they are, from this vantage point, invisible. Gaze up Belfast Lough and out into the North Channel in one direction the Isle of Man and Scotland are visible in clear weather and in the other all the way to the Mourne Mountains on the southern edge of County Down. No wonder the leaders of the United Irish movement chose this spot, in , to swear allegiance to independence in the name of Catholic, Protestant and Dissenter denominations. No wonder that, even today, climbing Cave Hill retains something of the character of a pilgrimage for many Belfast people.
