The UCT Cycling Club has partnered with Private Client Holdings, Trek, Free-wheel Cycology and William Simpson to bring fun short course racing to the schools of Cape Town.
The racing consists of 2 categories, ‘A’ and ‘B’ and the schoolboys and girls seed themselves accordingly. The B race is 3 laps or +-15mins of lung busting riding up the steep climbs and tight berms that litter the track. The A race is much the same only this time the racing is more intense and lasts 4 laps or +-20 mins.
The goal for UCT is to develop mountain bikers and a love for cycling from a grass roots level and through this participation, mobilize communities through bicycles by supporting the Velokhaya foundation with which UCT Cycling is associated.
The track is open to the public with permits being sold at The Gear Change in Mowbray or on Tuesday evenings at the races.
