Road Cycling – Graham Ward (g.ward@mweb.co.za)

Important Notes

Bunch Safety

  • Obey traffic signals – reds 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 – our rides leave at 6.30am

Visitors are always welcome. Saturday rides are slower and easier so beginners are welcome. Sundays are not for the fainthearted or unfit!

Please note that from November we will be meeting at the BP to leave at 6.30am


Saturday 28 November 2015

Meet at 6.20am – Briefing

Please elect a Ride Captain as Graham will be joining up with the ride later in the morning – so don’t alter the route.
Depart from BP through Burgundy Estate and down Contermanskloof to the 4 way Stop, over the 4 way stop, up Malanshoogte and down to the end of the Dairy Road. We will regroup at the start of the gravel road and then tackle some hill intervals just for fun before proceeding back to the top of Malanshoogte to re-group again. Tackle Tiekie just to cap off the morning. To get back to Edgemead ride all the way down Giel Basson to loosen the legs and to add some milage.
