  1. Hi Guys The NSPCA has formed a new (non-pro) National Cycling Team... They are looking for dedicated cyclists, sponsors, endorsees, donors and any other person/company who would like to get involved with #teamNSPCA. Cyclists riding for the National SPCA Cycling Team would ride in aid of the NSPCA in any cycling events they take part in throughout the year, and do so in an attempt to raise funds for this great charity. This National Team will consist of more permanent and committed riders than the (equally awesome) 'NSPCA Charity Team' taking part in events like the 947... ALL funds raised, sponsorship received, donations donated, endorsements given and other support offered (being financial support, goods, services or other) will go directly to the NSPCA, as cyclists will ride for the team on a volunteer basis. Should you be interested in joining the team, or if you are a company looking at sponsoring the NSPCA, please contact the NSPCA directly on comms3@nspca.co.za - they will be able to give you more info. They do have some rules and criteria for members of the National Team, all available from the NSPCA... . You are also welcome to leave a comment here, or *DM me, and I will put you in contact with the right people (I joined the team recently and help them out with the admin etc...) So, if you have a love for animals and enjoy cycling, please consider joining this team dedicated in supporting the NSPCA. ALL funds raised, sponsorship, donations, endorsements and other support (being financial support, goods or services offered) will go directly to the NSPCA, and cyclists ride for the team on a volunteer basis.
  2. On Thursday morning, early, we start our tour to Durban which includes riding the Amashova (day 4). Our club has done many Durban tours in the past, but we haven't done one for the last few years. This thread will be a blog about our journey from Germiston to Durban, with photos and comments from as many of the tour group as possible - some of them are hubbers (but they like to keep a low profile) - pending internet connection at our overnight spots (and my willingness to sift through photos and type up a story). One of the reasons for the tour is to raise funds for the NSPCA (our chosen charity for the 947 Cycle Challenge this year). We have setup a Back-a-buddy campaign as well as an SMS number (947-67 to 38018, @ R25/sms) for any donations. Like most others, raising funds is hard as everyone has their own preferences of where to donate (if at all). If you have already donated, we say "thanks". If not - chose from one of the two methods above and help us help the animals. The route Comprising a group of 27 (24 riders and 3 providing permanent backup), we have a mix of abilities ranging from Vets to beginners, old and young, experience and inexperienced. Very few members have cycled more than 200Km in one go, so day 1 will be a big challenge (224km) for many members. Personally, the longest ride I've done is 191Km so nailing the DC will be something I've been looking forward to ever since we started planning this tour. So far, the forecast for Thursday is looking promising... a tail wind (forecast is at Standerton - at the dam), which is 170Km into our ride. Let's see what the post-ride feedback it like. The biggest concern, I would think is this heatwave we're currently experiencing, so I'm guessing a lot of fluids will be consumed by all. Day 2 appears to be a good recovery ride, if you can call 157Km a recovery, while day 3 will be a favourite among most as we make our way through the KZN midlands before we reach PMB on Saturay afternoon. Day 4 is on the Amashova, starting in TL (for 3 of our tandems) and BB (buddy batch) for the rest. We'll be riding in club kit on Sunday, so look out for the "minions" on the road on Sunday... Three sleeps and counting...
