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. This app allows confidential contact tracing.  It means we don’t have to keep records of who cycled together with the club while still being able to ensure we can notify contacts if needed.

Weekend Club Rides
 
Road Rides
 
We realize that everyone is not as fit as they’d like to be and to ease into riding again and because of the roadworks at the top of Timber Hill at the dogleg towards Lanseria, we’ve decided to have 2 starting venues.  This is not ideal as a Club, but the huge potholes on route and roadworks can be hazardous.
