The Outriders Cycle Club & TYGESS (Tygerberg Emergency & Support Services CC)

An evening presentation:

What To Do…..What NOT To Do when faced with an Emergency

Venue: Upstairs, Black Angus, Paddocks Shopping Centre

Date: Wed 12 th Oct 2016

Time: 19h00

The Outriders invite you to attend a 45 minute safety presentation in the interests of cyclists safety (it will also assist with other emergencies we hope you never have to deal with!).

If you are with a group of cyclists and somebody has an unfortunate accident – do you know what to do? Who to call? How to comfort them? What NOT to do?

A group of The Outriders were faced with a challenging situation a few months back on a normal club ride. A rider had fallen badly and needed medical assistance. The group of riders tried to comfort and support the fallen rider and a motorist also stopped to offer help. While these gestures were fantastic, the feeling afterwards was….we could have done better.

With the West Coast Express approaching faster than the elite riders 300 metres from the finish line, we want to ensure we do our very best in the interests of cyclists safety and care.

Our emergency services providers – Tygess, have kindly agreed to assist us and will be giving us a 45 minute presentation with some extremely useful information of things to do, who to call and what NOT to do if faced with such an emergency.

We encourage all associated WPCA club members to attend and join us to get a better idea of how to handle the situation and assist those needing assistance.

Your attendance could make a difference in the future of somebody’s life.

Dornier’s bridge

Comments off 26 Views0


Dornier’s “dangerous” bamboo bridge is temporary repaired for usage. Please use new route as marked … right at Green Dam and around dam wall and into the forest. The old route follows the water trough which cyclists have damaged and this does not belong to Dornier.

PLEASE … only cycle the routes as marked on all the trails.

  • Do not cycle alone. Phone a friend! We have a number of WhatsApp groups were you can make a call for a riding buddy
  • No helmet no ride!
  • If you had flu, please do not cycle the next week, even if you feel better. Make sure your heart is strong enough for the ride. The consequences could result in a greater heartsore…
  • Carry a space blanket and a gel gun with you.

Please be aware of the runners and if you can avoid these areas on your Sunday ride, please do so.
