  1. Just received the dreaded "postponed/cancelled" mailer - second year running it doesnt happen 😟 They raise a valid point, under current restrictions, outdoor events are limited to 100 people - is the Knysna Cycle tour next to be pushed out only a couple of weeks away?
  2. Hello Community, I decided after 3 months of advertising my park & ride venue in Lanseria attracting one club who have supported me. I need to grow it. As we know people are creatures of habit. I am located just off the R552 (200m) on the edge of Fourways entering Lanseria. Perfect location. Here is the million dollar question to the community, what is the best way to get traffic here to my venue?I've thought about offering riding lessons for youngsters, short courses like safety, how to clean your bike, easy maintenance, open day where there are stores specific to cyclists. Some help here please!! The plots perfectly placed for all the cyclists travelling from Broadacres shopping centre in Fourways. Just so much safer to park here. Many thanks Tracey
  3. Hi all I've been very graciously sponsored to ride the upcoming Sani2C, this coming December 2020. I'm looking forward to it but I'm also apprehensive haha . My main concerns are the altitude, heat and humidity, but generally I just don't know what to expect. Could anyone share some advice on the event? Like anything you think one should take with them that might not be obvious? - Would you recommend any specific bike spares? - How difficult are those floating bridges? - How easy is it to charge a phone? - What is cellular coverage like en-route and in the villages? - Do water points have low sugar stuff like baby potatoes? I've shored up my bike setup with a new saddle (which I've spent a few hours riding now - it RAWKS) and a general bike service. I'm also planning on carrying an USWE backpack for water (3L). I'm thinking of carrying a first aid kit in my backpack and a satellite tracker. Any advice really or just say hi so we can share in the excitement (or fear) EOF
  4. Cyclists from anywhere in the world can be part of this prestigious event by simply taking to any roads or trails in their area and completing a 35km, 50km, 65km and 80km road or mountain bike distance. The Amashova, which is South Africa’s oldest road classic, has opted for the virtual option this year and invites anyone from all over the world to participate on October 18. Photo: Supplied “We wanted to keep the Amashova spirit alive,” said event organiser Melissa Felt. “As we had to cancel the physical event due to Covid-19 restrictions, we still wanted to feel the virtual vibe around Amashova race day.” Felt said that she saw numerous positive elements to having the Amashova, which is such a well-known mass participation event, go virtual this year. “We’ve made it possible for cyclists to choose from four distances and have included a 5km or 10km charity run/walk for those who want to be part of the action on race day. “We’re also donating a portion of the run/walk entries to our beneficiary Flag Animal Farm. “Everyone will be emailed a race number that they can wear on race day and will receive a finisher’s certificate which timing company Racetec will email to them.” She added that all cyclists would also receive a virtual goodie bag brought to you by Cycle Lab, which would be emailed to them before race day. Companies who are giving entrants great deals include Cycle Lab, PowerBar, Thule, Futurelife and Be Bright. Felt said the downside to hosting a virtual event was that they would miss the hospitality and friendly vibe at the finish, as well as seeing the proud cyclists achieve their goals out on the road. “We love interacting with our riders - from assisting them at number collection, seeing them on the start line to welcoming them over the finish line and into the hospitality village.” One of the unique factors that will be presented to riders is that everyone who takes part in any of the four distances and who have their Strava linked to Racetec, will have another year added onto their green number log. The group of green number cyclists, which are those who have completed 10 Amashova events, is growing each year and they can be seen proudly lined up in their special batch on the start line. Felt said that anyone with a bicycle and helmet could enter, but those participating in the virtual event on the road needed to have an understanding of cycling safety. “Cyclists can ride on the road or their favourite mountain bike trail. They’re advised to please practise safe cycling and adhere to social distancing. “If the rider has an indoor trainer then they can also ride on that, as long as they link their Strava and give Racetec permission to receive their results.” She added that they had already started preparations for next year’s event, which is taking place on October 24, and would be incorporating a new and exciting feature. “We will have a ‘Friends of the Amashova’ batch for all cyclists who take part in the virtual event. “This batch will give them a preferential start time at the start of the 106km, 65km and 35km events next year.” Online entries close on Monday, October 12, and are available through the Cycle Events website.Be part of Amashova’s history by entering here.

  7. Is it just me or is there a lot less mountain biking events by PPA this year? I had a look at https://www.pedalpower.org.za/events/ and was shocked to see there were only 4 (at the time of writing) for this year. Why is that?

  9. Why are there hardly any events listed under the Hub lately? Many events through other media not listed....for a favourite web joint for bikers this is disappointing.
  10. There's apparently a mountain bike race happening this weekend (17/18 November 2018) at Meerendal - but there doesn't seem to be any mention of it on Bikehub ? Maybe my search skills on the incredible edible internet suck ? Is anyone here taking part in it ? Why is it called "invitational" (especially seeing as people can sign up for it) ? It looks like it'll go through the Dorstberg gate (!!!) at the end of the second day.
  11. Hello, I want to find out if there is one website that lists all cycling events in South Africa in one place? Currently it looks like it's here and there and most websites only lists some events. Thanks!
  12. So this race/event/trail festival has become something of a bucket list event, and it's in a bucket list place. I have been agitating on the hub intermittently for years promoting the riding in South America, so I've decided to put my money where my mouth is. I'll be going through next year (maybe to participate in the actual race, but mostly to enjoy the riding, atmosphere, and do some ground research for a project proposal I'm working on). My plan is to rent a house for a couple of weeks (one before, the week of the race/festival, and the week after). Dates for the racing are April 23-29th 2018. Will have about five lodging spaces available in the house but I have a number of contacts in the area who run hotels and B & B's so numbers aren't too much of an issue and most budgets can be accommodated I have lived in Ollantaytambo and guided most of the trails in the area (some still on my bucket list and I'll be checking them off this time). So if any of you South African hubbers are keen to explore, ride insane trails and have some adventure (will be doing some hiking and trekking too, and of corse a run to Machu Picchu is obvious) check out the link (note there is also a hardtail category so its not just for gravity nuts) and respond.cool beans. http://incaavalanche.com
  13. Always used the Babba’s races as my go to race if there was nothing else on. There were 12 races a year held at Babba’s Lodge (northern Pretoria). At the December race it was mentioned that there will be changes. Looking at the website (www.francosport.co.za) it seems Babba’s is no more?

  18. Hi all, I was informed of this over the weekend, and was wondering if anyone has done one of these multi-sport events (running, kayak, cycling)? http://www.kineticgear.co.za/Events/Multisport-Challenge If so, please give some feedback about these events. Are these organised properly? Safety in general at these events? I see on the website that they advise that rain/lightning/thunder won't stop the event from going on. There is one coming up in October that I am interested in, but would like to hear some more from people who have done them. Thanks Kev

  23. Ive been working on cycling events for quite a while and have noticed a common letdown for participants, the quality of race/event packs - the gear and gadgets that they receive. Multistage race events offer a larger more expensive selection of gear and gifts in general but is it what cyclists really want or need. What would you put in and be realistic Look forward to some ideas and hopefully the guys can look at this and keep up to date what we all really want.

PENNYPINCHERS SILVERSTAR MTB CHALLENGE - ENTRY DEADLINE http://i3.cmail1.com/ei/j/B0/F40/CAA/csimport/2015Silverstarlogo.113542.jpg ENTRIES FOR SATURDAY'S PENNYPINCHERS SILVERSTAR MTB CHALLENGE CLOSE TONIGHT AT 23H59 (MONDAY, 31 AUGUST). RIDERS WHO WOULD STILL LIKE TO GET THEIR ENTRIES IN, SHOULD GO TO WWW.ASGEVENTS.CO.ZA Silverstar Casino, "the West Rand's favourite entertainment destination", is bracing itself for the onslaught of a huge field of mountain-bikers who are ready to take on the iconic ride on Saturday. The event follows a new route along the Krugersdorp Ridge and boasts a wonderful atmosphere at the revamped Silverstar Casino. Those riders who dine out at the venue in the week leading up to the event will be able to sit and watch the highlights of last year's event on the massive big screen in the Piazza area. The big screen will also broadcast the prize giving function live on the day, hosted by Johnny Koen, which will enable everyone who is having lunch after their ride to be a part of the action. The event starts in the new top-end open-air parking lot at Silverstar and finishes inside the big white Super Dome, adjacent to the Piazza area. A supervised bike park will be set up inside the Dome so that riders can leave their bikes in a secure area if they'd like to go and get a bite to eat, and, as per usual, the bike wash will also be set up. Riders who would still like to get on the start line, need to get their entries in at www.asgevents.co.za The Silverstar Challenge route has always been known as a challenging task and this year will be no different, although the 20km ride doesn't have major technical obstacles, with exception of the final drop down to Silverstar from the mountain. Route director, Darren Herbst, said riders could look forward to beautiful forested sections, open fields and rocky trails with some spectacular views over the West Rand. “On a clear day, you can see all the way to Pretoria.” From the top of Protea Ridge, participants plunge down through the Walter Sisulu National Botanical Garden en route to the finish. “The last three kilometres will hair-raising for a few but exhilarating for most,” laughed Herbst. He said the casino finishing area, with its surrounding restaurants and children’s zone, would keep the whole family entertained for the day. Enter at www.asgevents.co.za.
