It has indeed been a quiet winter on the League front! However on the cycling front it has been rather busy. The paralympics was a highlight, the juniors had their inter club track trials last month and provincial trials this past weekend, and everyone is out and about on bikes again.
So, our next League Race is scheduled for this Saturday (22 Oct) at the Ride In in the Jonkershoek Valley. It will be the official Time Trial for qualification for 2017.
The route is the usual 10 km route and afterwards there is a good opportunity for those who find the ride too short to do Helshoogte or some other nearby Boland route.
Starting at the Ride In, situated at the beginning of the valley, the route is a 5 km out-and-back ride. The turn-around point will be at the entrance gate to the Jonkershoek Nature Reserve.
Registration at Ride In car park will be opening at 07:00. The race will start at the entrance gate at 07:30.
Obviously, it is VERY IMPORTANT that riders use safety aids like flashing red lights, flags on hand-bikes, etc. and that they should wear bright visible cycling jerseys.
If in doubt about the conditions on the day please phone Mike Burns (0825608119) or JC van der Walt (0823626535) early on Saturday morning.
