Club News 17th September 2020 It's going to be a scorcher of a weekend, be sure to apply your sunscreen and maintain your hydration when outdoors on your bicycle. Wow, what a week it’s been at the Tour de France with some amazing breakaways. The last few days have shown some real grit with extremely difficult stages. It’s certainly been a climbers TDF. Enjoy the last few days of the Tour and hopefully it will inspire you to get back on your bike and join us on our club rides as we move into summer and Stage 1 of lockdown.We hope to see more of our members joining us from either Broadacres or The Culinary. The roadworks and potholes are still a huge problem and for the safety of our members, we have the 2nd venue. Olly will start with the Broadacres group at 06h45 and meet up with us in the Cradle. Looking forward to seeing you all out there.Please will all members riding with the club, Road, MTB, and Tri-athletes download the “COVID Alert South Africa” app from their app store.
