Invitation for Novice DC team members

Dear Wannabee member, the Road committee decided this year to sponsor a novice Double Century team. To this end if you have never ridden the D.C. but would like the opportunity to do so under the guidance of a team captain who will train with the team and ensure that the team is ready for the big day, then please contact me on the details listed below and I will put your name in the list. Team allocation will be done in a first come first served basis.

Bike parking at Somerbosch

Thank you, Velo Life and Paarl Vallei Nursery, for the two tree stumps to use as a bike park at Somerbosch.  Errol has slotted them for us, and Marius from Somerbosch removed a rose bush for easy access.  Please use the opening that Marius has provided for us, and park your bike at the stand to free space between tables.

Coffee Ride and Helderberg Trails Intro

Hey Guys
Come and join us on Saturday 22 July for coffee and croissants at The Hanger Bike Co.
Road ride will start at Lord Charles at 7h30, ending at The Hanger Bike Co around 10h30.
The MTB guys have 2 options. You can do your own ride on the Wannabees trails, also aiming to finish at The Hanger Bike Co around 10h30, OR you can meet in the car park at The Hanger Bike Co at 8h00 for an 8h15 start for a free introductory ride at Helderberg Farm. This offer is open for Wannabees members only. For those of you who haven’t experienced the joys of riding the Helderberg Trails, Andrew Neethling is offering to host any Wannabees members for an introductory tour of some of the most awesome downhill trails in the area. Groups will be divided up and a guide will be allocated to each group for a fun filled morning. These groups will also arrive back around 10h30. MTB riders not wanting to join the tour are still invited to join everyone at The Hanger Bike Co for coffee and croissants around 10h30.

The Hanger Bike Co is situated at the intersection of the R44 and Klein Helderberg Road.

RSVP is essential for this event. Please send your response before 12h00 noon on Thursday for inclusion to this event.

Donate sporting clothes and equipment

In celebration of the life and times of our revered Nelson Mandela, the steering committee of the Macassar Bike Park would like to appeal to all cyclists in the area to donate all their old cycling clothing to their cause on Mandela Day. This is a fantastic initiative that brings the children of Macassar together to learn to love the sport as we do.

In addition, any other sporting clothes and equipment can be delivered and these will be given to the school at Raithby.

Clothing can be delivered to The Hanger Bike Co shop, corner of R44 and Klein Helderberg Road on Mandela Day, 18 July, between the times of 9h00 and 17h00

Ridgemore trails closed

Kindly note that we may no longer ride on Ridgemore Farm. Errol has already changed the route.  Please be on the lookout for the new route signs when riding the blue route on the western side.  You can still ride on the Faure farms, but the short Ridgemore section is now closed for cyclists.
