Congrats and Welldone to all who took part in the 99er, It was quite a tough route

Saturday will be our third recon ride of the Cape Town Cycletour route.
Each of our rides have been well attended by our members and visitors.
We”ll be leaving the BP at 06h00 please don’t be late.
We”ll split into two groups along the route.
The one group will cycle at club ride pace of 30km.
The second group will cycle at Fastgroup pace of 35km on the flats.
All our rides follow the same etiquette of regrouping at the top of the climbs and at the bottom of the descents.
There’s no need if you a faster climber or descender to go off by yourself.
Rather wait on your fellow club members,
You much safer in a group.
There’s plenty of places along our rides where you can stretch your legs if you feel the pace is to slow.
At the end of the day you part of a cycling club.
A cycling club who wants all our members to improve.
The Cycle tour is weeks away and there’s no more time for excuses.
You have to get on your bike weekends no matter the weather.
Luckily if you join our rides you don’t need to cycle by yourself.
Looking forward to see everyone in club kit on our weekend rides.
Looking forward to see our members at the AGM.
Especially those interested in what it takes to be a cycling club or what we usually discuss at our monthly Committee meeting.
We might entice you to become part of the Committee.
