  2. http://www.cansalostcity.co.za/ The Bestmed Cansa Lost City Classic is delighted to announce that the 2016 road race returns to the original route for this year’s 19th edition of the popular event. To facilitate the change, which will now offer distances of 103km and 70km, the road race moves away from its traditional Saturday slot and will take place on Sunday, 21 August. The MTB Classic now fills the Saturday slot (20 August) over the weekend cycling festival. The reason for the event discontinuing the popular old route three years ago was the increase in traffic volumes - in particular heavy mine trucks – on the R551 from Thabazimbi, which the race came across from 23km to 45km. Never did the Classic old route, just the new 116km for the last 3 years. Thoughts? Will give race a go, always enjoyed the 116km route, Fast & Flat. http://s30.postimg.org/6naeig1i9/103.png 103km Route Profile http://s28.postimg.org/9red4yyl9/image.png 70km Route Profile
  3. Hi there fellow Hubbers I will be participating in my 4th Cycle for CANSA road race this year and the whole family and a couple of friends are eager to join in the fun after the finish and hit the valley of the waves afterwards for a few hours before heading back to the east rand. I already have a couple of vouchers from my mates who are heading straight home after the finish and looking for 9 more vouchers .... So would really appreciate anyone who is willing to give theirs away so we can save on the entrance fee. We can make arrangements for the Sunday, 26th August for collection after the road race. Please reply to the post, PM or Whatsapp me 0731682831 for arrangements after the race. Thanks!
  4. Dear Valued Hubbers, We are honoured to be competing at the 2019 ABSA Cape Epic mountain bike race, in support of CANSA. (www.cansa.org.za) Our goal is to help raise awareness and funds for CANSA in support of their fight against cancer. We are very grateful to be offered this opportunity to help those who are affected by this disease, and we wish to contribute to this cause. We can do so with your support - together we can make a difference! We therefore kindly ask that you please support our cause and the fight against cancer, by making a donation, no matter how small - every cent helps, to CANSA at the following link: https://www.givengain.com/ap/cansaheroes/# (all proceeds will go directly into CANSA's bank account). We are also selling advertising space on our racing kit to companies who wish to donate to this cause. All proceeds will go directly to CANSA, who will in return issue tax certificates to donating companies. Please share with all your family and friends. Also follow us for upcoming fundraiser events! Many thanks for your kind support! Riaan van Wyk & Jacques Lotriet
  5. Members of the Bestmed-ASG women’s pro cycling and men’s veteran teams plus a few amateurs joined forces to spread the word about the importance of wearing sunscreen and raised over R16 000 for the Cancer Association of South Africa this week. These seven intrepid cyclists completed the 700km journey from Pretoria to Ballito in aid of the Cancer Association of South Africa this week. They were (from left) Malcolm Barske, Chris Luyt, Julien van der Pluym, Jeandre van Schalkwyk, Michelle Benson, Gert Nel and (front) Chris van Rooyen. Photo: Supplied Bestmed executive head of marketing and distribution, Chris Luyt, who also participated in the tour, said he was extremely proud of the riders for taking the initiative this festive season. “I’m very excited about our Bestmed pro riders being so forward thinking, enjoying the sport they love and putting it to good use for charity.” Luyt said the ride was the brainchild of men’s team manager Chris van Rooyen of Brandman and that funds would be managed through the newly established Brandman Foundation. He said the road tour served a two-fold purpose of raising funds and preparing the teams for the new season. “At this time of year our teams work on their base training by doing long rides but not at a high heart rate. So this was ideal.” Luyt said they would open the annual ride to interested cyclists in 2016 and invite them to put their muscle behind such a worthy cause. He said the ultimate vision for the tour was to create a pro-am scenario in which pro riders worked with novices to dispense advice and valuable training tips. “You learn a lot in the course of 700 kilometres,” said Luyt. Michelle Benson, who was the only elite woman in the group, said she would recommend it to fellow female riders looking for a long-distance challenge. “It’s excellent training, especially in building endurance, but it is very tough. And of course it’s for a great cause.” The party left the medical scheme’s head office in Pretoria at 6am on Saturday morning and finished the first stage more than 200km later in Standerton. On Sunday they battled soaring temperatures and a blinding dust storm as they made their way through the rural Free State to Vryheid in northern KwaZulu-Natal. The following day, they faced another weather-related challenge as they rode 150km in pouring rain towards the North Coast resort town of Zinkwazi Beach. On Tuesday, an easy 35km run into Ballito brought their epic journey to a close. “We tried to avoid the major high-traffic holiday routes and travelled mainly through the rural areas,” said Luyt. “People were quite intrigued with these cyclists riding all the way from Gauteng and we were very well received in Ballito, where we chatted to visitors and locals and shared knowledge with them.” Luyt said the initiative was the perfect extension of Bestmed’s long-standing partnership with Cansa and Incolabs, which aimed to drive awareness of skin cancer and effective sun protection. “All participants in our Bestmed National Cycling Series events have access to free sunscreen and we’ve also made special UV-protective cycling sleeves available for purchase this season.” Follow the team on Facebook and Twitter or visit www.teambestmedasg.co.za.

  7. Dear Cyclist I know I am being forward BUT… I have taken upon a project to do some fund raising for CANSA. We will be using our recreational cycling as the medium for advertising for CANSA aiming to be fully uniformed/kitted for the upcoming premier Cape road events. All event entries , accommodation and kit for the entered events are paid for by ourselves , so any funds raised goes directly to CANSA via our GivenGain activist link below. My appeal to you is that if you have any ‘spare’ funds that you are itching to give away, please consider my project. Furthermore, if you know of any friends that also have that itch to give some of their ‘spare’ funds away, feel free to pass on the info to them. http://www.givengain.com/activist/126417/projects/9012/ Thanks for taking the time to read this. Much love, Ashley
