Visitors are always welcome. Please introduce yourself to the ride coordinator at the start and please make sure that you are carrying ICE information or pass that information on to the ride coordinator before the start.

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.

Notes 

 

The Cycletour is less than two months away so we all need to step up our training if we want a good result from the Cycletour. We have training rides Tuesdays and Thursdays at 05h00 from the BP +-90minutes long. Club membership subs are due for 2019 please visit our website and fill out our online application form for the 2019 season. The great part of a cycling club there’s always club members inspiring you to keep up or improve, much better than training or cycling by yourself so make 2019 the year you join CCC and cycle right through the year amongst cyclists who will keep you motivated through the cold winter rides.
