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

A big thanks to all our members who took part in our club race at Atlantis and those who attended our annual general meeting. Some of our members will be participating in the Bouckaert-Soenen roadrace in Paarl on Sunday, good luck to all of them. We are five weeks away from the Cycle tour and its difficult to plan long rides with every weekend there being a PPA event. If you feel the club ride distance is a bit to short but still want to ride with the club just do 10km before the club ride and 10km afterwards Then you’ve added 20km to the distance you would have done if you only did the club ride.
