  4. Are there any early morning group road rides in an around the George area?
  5. Hi I am looking for riding partners to ride Newlands, Rhodes mem and maybe some of the greenbelt trails before work on a weekday mornings before work. Are there any groups that ride these trails in the morning or people riding I could join? On a separate note is it still possible to group together 4 people to make the SANParks activity permit cheaper?
  6. Hi all I've heard about this morning group ride, but don't really know when/where/regularity etc. Can someone please post info Is there a ride tomorrow (Thur 23rd Jan)? if so what time? Thanks
  7. I noticed that there is definitely a need for weekday rides from 16:00. Now that summer's almost in, that could potentially mean getting a 2 hour ride until sunset. There are posts for these kind of rides in the relevant areas but has it ever been explored to create multiple watsapp groups (per area) to cater for this requirement? For example, if there was one for Bryanston, a short message saying "meet at The Baron at 4pm" for a group ride could potentially create a group of a few cyclist exploring the quiet roads/walkways. I'm new to this group (and a beginner cyclist), so not quite sure what kind of logistics are involved with setting this up.
  8. Hi I'm going to Dullstroom for the weekend. I am looking for good mountain biking. I've done some searches and come up with references to some good rides, but no specific routes. Can anyone help out with this? I was thinking about Dullstroom - Tonteldoos and back. It's a bit short for what I was looking for, and was hoping there are some actual trails around too. Thanks!
  9. Hi there Recently moved house from Southern Suburbs Cape Town to Noordhoek. I am keen to join up with some like minded people for road cycling / training rides on weekends. Due to kid commitments probably mostly Sunday early morning rides on the road (but may be some Saturdays). Would also be keen for some MTBing from time to time. Are there any groups in Noordhoek / Fish Hoek / South Peninsula or even Tokai that someone could recommend and provide content details? Key is I am after a group that starts out this side... I train to keep fit, but often also enter road races and triathlons (so also interested if there are any triathlon run and swim groups starting from the South Peninsula on weekends). NOt a beginner but need to build up fitness a little as have been off cycling for a few months with house move / work etc. Thanks very much all Deon
  10. Hi After about 5 years i have taken up cycling again and looking for groups in my area to join on weekends. I live close to Graanendal shopping center and would like to join groups on early morning rides
  11. Hi, I'm from the Netherlands and moved to Johannesburg last year. I started to miss the cycling I used to do in the Netherlands and therefore decided recently to move my bike as well. Are their any groups I could join to get used to cycling in South Africa? I'm looking to do a ride in the weekend (2-3 hours) and one during the week (1-2 hours). Hope someone can help out
  12. So Stellenbosch has a Bike2Work/Bike2School week from 10-15 October (https://www.facebook.com/stellenboschfietsry/). Is there anything similar being done in Cape Town? PPA? From the Northern suburbs a couple of us will be riding to town together if anyone wants to join. If anyone got connections, why not try to get an hour with Brett Herron sometime in the week? See the council is abiout to release some draft transport plan to get 8% of Capetonians on their bikes by 2032! http://www.iol.co.za/motoring/industry-news/on-your-bike-cape-town-tells-commuters-2076803
  13. Hi, My girlfriend started riding last year and is really enjoying the riding but unfortunately we only get to ride on average twice a month. I am the culprit here as I am working and finishing up my MBA studies so I have limited time to ride with her. Does anyone perhaps know of beginner friendly rides or ladies groups in Pretoria East that she might be able to join on weekdays/weekends or whenever possible. Perhaps any leads on beginners skills development sessions or clinics would also be appreciated. She loves riding the green route at Big Red Barn as its nice and flat, we do around 20km at 15km/h average when we ride the barn. She has done several other routes in Pretoria and surrounds with me. Any help would be most appreciated. Kind Regards, Ewald
  14. Looking for morning or evening group rides in the week around the City Bow, Sea Point, Green Pointl or Observatory area. Medium pace. Maybe 1 to 1.5 hours - before or after work.
  15. I am looking for a MTB group to join in above mentioned area of Parys Free State either early mornings or late afternoons. People are welcome to come and join me also, we have a 1000hectare property with lost of roads and undulating hills.
  16. Hi, I am visiting Cape Town for the next few months from the other hemisphere and I am looking for riding partners and suggestion for where to rent a quality mountain bike long term. I have not yet secured a bike, so I know nothing yet of local trails. I am mostly interested in MTB, but will ride road too. As for my level, I used to race cross country (amateur sport class many years ago) so I can handle myself on a bike, but have been off for a year with injuries and preparations for this trip (with an extra 8-10Kg as well). I am happy to suffer (or go slow...??) in exchange for knowledgable partners who can show me around. I am not working, so I am flexible during weekdays...I can ride morning or evening, but most weekends will be spent exploring SA with my family.
  17. There is a Constantia Greenbelt Mass happening next week Wednesday at 6pm. All the info is in the Facebook group and will be updated on where it will start from and so on. Not sure if they have already let everyone here know, but thought i would! Pretty rad! https://www.facebook.com/groups/999434460079312/?pnref=story As you may or may not know, the City of Cape Town invites comments from interested and affected parties on the proposal to open certain green belts in the Constantia Valley to off-road cyclists. In terms of Section 17 of the Local Government Municipal Systems Act, Act 32 of 2000, Council must afford the public and interested parties or groups an opportunity to submit comments to the municipality for 30 days. The comment period takes place from 1 to 30 October 2015. Interested persons are welcome to attend the following public open day where the draft proposal will be available. Date: 14 October 2015 Time: 14:00 – 20:00 Venue: Alphen Centre Main Hall
  18. Hi, I'm looking for riders in the Kyalami / Beaulieu are to join on group rides. I am of medium fitness and coming out of winter Hibernation. Trevor
  19. Hiya New to the group...havent been able to find any group rides in SW. If anyone knows of any, im not a competitive rider. Just for fun and views. Please let me know
  20. Hey guys, I am fairly new to the MTB industry, as I have only been riding since last year December. I am keen to start riding more often (every weekend), and looking for some guys in the same boat. I want to obviously ride trails, but at the same time I'm not really keen on trails with no single tracks. I like to think I climb the hills for the single tracks down, if that makes any sense...? I also don't ride to race, or make good time. Its simply for the fun of it! Please let me know if there is anyone out there either doing the above or looking at doing the above... Maybe its a good idea to post where you are from, and where you often ride, so I'll start: Situated: Kommetjie Ride: Anything from Bloemendal to Paul Cluver etc. - No Tokai anymore
  21. I'm wanting to do weekday road and mtb rides before work at 05h00, relatively fast pace. Does anyone know of any riding groups in the honeydew area perhaps? I stay in Eagle canyon and would like to leave from there and be back at latest 07h00.
  22. This weekend I did a group ride around Marine drive in Port Elizabeth (this is a beautiful two line road alongside the ocean), at 5 am we started approximately 20 riders and other groups joined adding up to +/- 80 riders. When automobile drivers wanted to overtake the rear cyclists they did not realize the length of the group until they were already on the other line with no space to move into their left. We had a couple of close calls with cars going into the right side of the road to avoid incoming traffic. This was the worst ride I've ever had, I was so stress with cars overtaking the group because it was just too long. I've always heard that in group rides, numbers are safe, in this case, numbers were unsafe.
  23. Hi all, I will be coming down to DBN to ride the Tour of Durban on the 26th April, & will in DBN for the rest of that week, so would like to get some riding in while there. I will be staying at Garden Court South Beach, and would like to know if there are any group rides/routes that one can recommend. Other than the 20 odd kms that I can get done on the beachfront, looking for routes/rides that are a little longer on the road bike. Thanks, appreciate any advise.
  24. Hi all I am an average rider who would like to join local group rides between Thursday 2nd April and Wednesday 8th April in the Bellville, Plattekloof, Tygerberg area. Please advise if there are any around and the place and time to meet. Thank you.
  25. Im training for the SANI and need to increase my ride distances (pretty bored of doing laps at Thaba.) Does anyone have any outride maps or info for trails around JHB south?
