Notes

Our next DC training ride is Bainskloof on the first of September 06h00. So far we’ve cycled to Gordon’s bay, Malmesbury, Simon’s town and Rooiels on our DC training rides and looking forward to Bainskloof, Franschoek and Langebaan. Every second week we have a DC training ride and the weeks in between we usually have a +-85km club ride, where the club members split into two groups. The social group goes along at +-25kph and the other faster group goes at 30+kph. Feel free to join either team as long as you can keep up.
