Club100 News 26th November 2020




Club News 26th November 2020
Black Friday is here and November is done and dusted!

We were completely rained out last weekend.  However, some of our members still managed to compete in the Redhub Triathlon and the Joburg Cycle Classic.  Well Done to Tony Lamberti for coming 1st in his age group in the Joburg Classic on Saturday and to Sean Barclay for his 4th overall at the Redhub Tri on Sunday.  

Good Luck to those doing the Satellite Classic this weekend.

The Annual Club100 MTB Long Ride is taking place on Sunday.  Olly will be supporting the MTB ride this Sunday.

As published last week, we’re bumping up the Ride Times. For the roadies, the start from Broadacres will be at 06h15 and from Culinary Table at 06h30 – every Saturday until March 2021.   The A bunch (30 – 32km/h) leaves at 06h00.                                                                                                                             
The Sunday Club Rides from Moove remains unchanged at 06h30.
The Saturday MTB Club Rides starts at 06h00 as well as the Sunday MTB Rides. 
Get your ride in on Saturday as rain is predicted for most of Sunday till mid-day.

We would like to appeal to each and every one of our members to please have your emergency details on you in case of an emergency.  Get your ICE bracelet – and wear it when you’re cycling and running or just wear it all the time.  Alternatively, ICE your phone.
Crime is on the up and the criminals are targeting cyclists.  Belonging to a cycling club like Club100 is most definitely beneficial, as it’s SAFETY in numbers for both the mountain bikers and roadies.  Be vigilant out there and please never cycle on your own.


FatBoy – Sean Gallick gives a mean Spinning Class every Tuesday and Thursday from Moove Gym in Sunninghill @ 05h00.   Drop FatBoy a WhatsApp should you like to join these spinning classes.

Thank YOU, Olly
