This hits close to home, on my urban route as well. Just show, wherever you have these low-lifes in informal settlements, crime will be rife. I have been cycling past there for 4 years now. It looks like a dump anyway when you drive past there, okes boozing 7am in the morning, smoking who knows what and just overall a dirty place. Be safe, or take a weapon with. I feel we as members should ask our local MTB clubs (Tygerberg MTB Club) to approach the local ward councilor and put pressure on them to get police involved and make sure areas are patrolled.
