NOTES

CCC host the Century City criterium annually and we want to show our support by making the club ride part of the criterium. Please wear you’re club kit on Sunday.

We one week away from the Cycle Tour and I’m sure everyone is looking forward to it so please be very alert on the roads this weekend and try to stay inside the yellow line at all times.

There’s certain members who still haven’t renewed their membership for 2019. As well as cyclists who ride with CCC for years without taking out CCC Membership or even bothering to buy club kit. CCC Committee is looking at how to address this problem going forward its seriously getting out of hand.

Club Membership fees are due for 2019 please visit our website and fill out our online application form for 2019 season http://www.citycyclingclub.co.za/membership-application/

BUNCH SAFETY

Obey traffic signals – red lights

Ride inside the yellow line

Single file on narrow roads

Point out objects in the road

Bunch Etiquette

Blow your nose at the back of the bunch

Don’t attack – training rides are just that – training rides

Don’t half bike

Be punctual

Saturdays – rides are slower and easier so beginners are welcome. We try and cater for a long and short group depending on the turn-outs. 

Sundays – rides are usually more challenging i.e. 30+ km/hr pace. We however try and cater for multiple groups with separate capabilities, depending on the turn-outs on the day.
