  1. Haven’t seen a thread for the event, but this press release doesn’t bode well for an event struggling to recover from the effects of covid. The area is riddled with potholes, and some of the route is on provisional roads, so minimal chances of them being fixed by the cANCer-ridden Provincial Government.
  2. So with more and more of us moving to structured training plans either with power meters on the bike or on the IDT, or even just using HRM. I thought it might be good idea and of assistance to find out how many free training plans there are out there to use with Trainingpeaks (TP). I have have been using TP for the last year and find the integration of automatic upload/sync with the likes of garmin and as such the ease of following workouts and checking performance and PMC numbers etc to be pretty beneficial in my training and fitness. Yes there are many plans you can buy via the trainingpeaks website, but if you look hard enough you can find free ones Especially as I see more and more hubbers saying I have X number of weeks before an event, what plan can I do to get fit... or a semblance of fitness for that event. Perhaps a structured training plan will help better. It is said that your are 2X more likely to succeed if you follow a structured training plan and as hubbers prefer to spend more on their bikes than on the fitness/training side... perhaps some free plans might be of assistance with the basic Athlete training account on TP. (which is also free) So to get the proverbial training going, here some links to free training plans: Cycling http://home.trainingpeaks.com/products/trainingplans/affiliates/british-cycling/british-cycling-training-plans https://www.trainingpeaks.com/training-plans/cycling/tp-74350/road-stages-power-primer-new-power-meter-user-7-12-hours-per-week https://www.trainingpeaks.com/training-plans/cycling/tp-74712/tt-tri-stages-power-pacing-new-power-meter-user-4-9-hours-per-week https://www.trainingpeaks.com/affiliates/quarq-training-plans/?utm_source=FB_Post&utm_medium=facebook&utm_campaign=FB_TrainingPeaks_Quarq_training_plan&utm_content=Quarq%20training%20plans%20in%20TrainingPeaks https://www.trainingpeaks.com/my-training-plans/rgtcycling Ebook needed for the stages plans https://support.stagescycling.com/en/support/solutions/articles/1000122756-ebook-trainingpeak-s-how-to-start-training-with-power- Triathlon http://home.trainingpeaks.com/products/trainingplans/affiliates/british-triathlon/british-triathlon-training-plans http://home.trainingpeaks.com/products/trainingplans/affiliates/usa-triathlon/usa-triathlon-training-plans https://home.trainingpeaks.com/products/trainingplans/plans/15-week-pool-sprint-triathlon-plan-for-1st-timers?DCI=22&DSC=42 Use Code to get for free https://home.trainingpeaks.com/purchase/TP-111567 Running https://www.trainingpeaks.com/training-plans/running/10km/tp-109701/beginner-10k-plan-with-structured-workouts Sufferfest (a whole host of various plans) https://thesufferfest.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/333757054935-The-Sufferfest-APEX-Training-Plans-Now-Available-on-TrainingPeaks https://www.trainingpeaks.com/the-sufferfest.HTML Swimming https://www.trainingpeaks.com/affiliates/2017-triathlon-week-swim-training-plans/ Anyone found any other free TP plans whether cycling, triathlon, running, crossfit etc?? 20% Discount code for TP, 20BritishTri2020 (Just change the year accordingly) https://thesufferfest.com/pages/training-plans

  4. Hi Hubbers If you commute too and from work in the Stellenbosch or Somerset West areas and are interested in testing a new cycling sensor, please drop me an email Benoit.Capostagno@garmin.com. We have a prototype that we are currently testing, which is integrated into our test bikes (we will provide you with a bike for the testing) The ideal use case would be commuters, but anyone who regularly rides in the areas (our offices are in Techno Park) and is interested in testing a new cycling sensor, please feel free to respond too. Thank you. Ben
  5. Satellite Classic, presented by Everything.Insure, defending champions David Maree and Joanna van de Winkel will have their eyes on another win when the road race takes place at Hoërskool Bekker, Magaliesburg, on October 1. This year marks the 18th edition of the event, which was first hosted in 2003. Due to Covid-19 regulations, the race last took place in 2020. The event also consists of an MTB Relay (October 2). Now in its third year, it provides four hours of cross-country off-road fun and takes place on the former SA Schools Final trail. Maree's track background came to good use when he sprinted to victory in the 2020 race, to get the better of Flavio Venceslau and Jaco van Dyk. The Team DMS rider said it was a great feeling to be back at one of the country’s iconic races. "Having my big disappointment in 2018 and winning in 2019 makes it special. Winning the last event, I'd like to successfully defend the title." He added that having won a few races and getting to the end of his career soon, he would use another win as an opportunity to teach the younger riders. The 33-year-old felt that it was "quite a hard race" with a few climbs, but it always turned out to be one for the riders who put in the work. "Hekpoort will always be tough - it's the big one. "Once I make it over there in the front group, I know I have a chance with the tricky sprint finish." Maree, who lives in Fourways, felt that this event was great preparation for the end of the year. "It also has some great scenery, and the weather is always great." Van de Winkel captured her third straight Satellite Classic title at the last edition. The Sandton City Cycle Nation rider crossed the line half a minute ahead of Parys Edwards. Azulde Britz finished third. "I'm excited to be back on the start line of this Classic. The last time I raced it, I had just come back from a stint of racing in Europe and the UK, so I was in good form. "They say 'pain is temporary and memories are forever' and it's true for this race, which I've won a couple of times." She added that this year there would be other riders returning from overseas racing, which would make it more of a challenge for those who have remained local during the winter. "It's exciting that a few of the young women have been racing internationally and will come back strong for the end of the SA season. "It will be challenging competing against a strong field of women. Cherise [Williet] and I will have to work together and communicate well during the race to maximise our strength as a team." She added that they always went out with the goal of winning. "Cherise and I work well together. The hill comes quite early in this race so I'll be maximising on that, but I know she always has my back if it doesn't work out - as a natural sprinter who has won almost every Classic in SA before." The 40-year-old said that she would be very happy if they could win this race again. "I'm at the point in my career that a personal win doesn't mean the world to me anymore, but if I can help our team win, help others achieve, or inspire others, then I'm just as happy." Due to Van de Winkel being an endurance climber, she feels that a long and gradual hill such as Hekpoort suits her. "The race is not only suited to a climber though. The hill comes early while everyone is still fresh and there's a long stretch afterwards to catch back. "A few groups re-joined after the climb in the last race, and we'll be looking to work as a team to manage the breaks and maximise on the technical finish, if this happens." The Hillcrest local said she loved riding out in Magaliesburg and up Hekpoort. "It's a fun day out with a real challenge, beautiful scenery and comradeship!" This year's Satellite Classic is a seeding event for the Virgin Active Ride Joburg cycle race. Entries close September 18. Visit www.facebook.com/satelliteclassic to win a road or MTB entry.

  8. Good Afternoon: Please note we are starting to experience an escalation in attacks on cyclists within the Langebaan area. 1) Monday 18 April 2022 at approx 10:15 a female cyclist was accosted by two males on a tarred cycle path off Oostewal Road (main entrance road) outside Seaview Park (commonly known as Hopland). The cyclist refused to hand over her bicycle and was assisted by another cyclist and a motorist. The perpatrators ran off and could not be located by local SAPS. 2) Male cyclist was accosted and assaulted on Langebaan entrance road near Engen One Stop, by a single assailant. The perpetrator made off with the bicycle, but was apprehended by SANPARKS rangers and a motorist who stopped to assist. The cyclist has been seriously injured. The perpetrator is in SAPS custody and a formal docket opened. The bicycle was recovered. We are currently experiencing an unsettling crime spike within Langebaan. I would like to caution all who visit our area to please keep your items safe, cycle within the West Coast National Park, the Langebaan Country Estate or make sure you are cycling in numbers. Many bicycles have been reported stolen, few have been recovered and the new attacks on cyclists is very concerning. We are trying to give it priority attention with our local law enforcement agencies and government as well as our Neighourhood Watch, Team Langebaan Neighourhood Watch. Kind Regards Jon Amira Cycleworx Langebaan
  9. Edit: taking a leaf out of Peter Sagan’s book of 100 riders each having their own story. 100 riders, 100 different stories. Here's my story of "lockdown", with some data leading into it. Having come off a club Tour to Durban, a few half marathons and the 947 Ride Joburg, I took a break that had some riding, but not much. I got back into it in mid January with the hope of planning for the Maluti D90 in April 2020. Some green spikey thing had other ideas plunging us into a lockdown never before seen in our lifetime. Rouvy and Zwift kept me busy when work (essential services) allowed me a break here or there. Then we had something called the 5Km radius and a curfew of 6-9), later extended to some hours I cant remember. Then the radius of "you shalt not go out of" was dropped and we returned to some normality, as a cyclist. In the meanwhile golfers were fuming that they couldn't play a round at their locale. Events popped up, and I did one for the entire 365 days of lockdown... the Winter Fast One. Really enjoyable, even though I was "spinning out" on some descents. Plans to return to racing came, and were gone (with the wind). By year end, I was about 600Km short of hitting what I thought was an impossible target when we went into lockdown. Thanks goodness for some Challenge called the Rapha 500, as it forced me to put in 3 big rides (140Km each) in 4 days (with Christmas day giving me a 30Km IDT ride). As I was travelling to the land of the Disa on the 28th, I had 60Km to do in 4 days, of which 2 would be spent driving from the highveld to the Overberg. 8pm on the night we slept over in Beaufort West, el Presidente told us all beaches were no-go areas... what did he think us Vaalies would react? Luckily I had the dikwiel, some awesome trails around Kleinmond and two weeks of sublime weather. 2021 carried on where 2020 left off, and was again disappointed when the 2021 Maluti D90 was also called off. Oh well, riding has been a joy over the last 365 days. My 2021 goal has been stepped up a touch... 220Km (minimum) every week, to the end of the year. So, what's your story... let's keep it going and have something to look back on in 1, 2, 5, 10 years from now.
  10. A number of hubbers have reported in the Covid threads that they, or their family members contracted the bug. I am sure many more cyclists have been exposed. Hopefully most did not suffer severe symptoms or get hospitalised and by now, many will have recovered. Getting fit and cycling again is the next step. This thread is document the experiences of hubbers, their families and friends when they resume cycling and training after recovering from Covid 19. Please keep other Covid discussions to other threads! I will discus my personal experiences in a following post.
  11. Price Drop for this coming september long weekend - Pay only R6500.00 for a group of 4. There is only one package available at this price - to book now, click here We arent really sure if this weekend escape from the city is for the foodie with a MTB problem, or the MTBer with an eating disorder. What we do know for sure though, is riding bikes makes you hungry, and food and wine go so well with MTBs, that it makes perfect sense to pair them. This awesome weekend of MTBing is a bargain at only R2600.00pp, and includes 2 nights accomodation, all meals, a full day of guided riding on saturday, crossing through private property normally off limits to the public, two cheese tastings, a number of wine tastings (if the goverment grows a brain), and a day pass to the Hemel and Aarde Trails on Sunday. all of this, and its not even 2 hours drive from the city, if you take it easy. for all the details, and to book your spot - click here Space is strictly limited to 8 riders for the weekend, and we already have two spots taken - so there are 6 spots still avaialble. Remember, if you pay by EFT, you get a free branded buff. ************We will have a selection of local botique wine for personal consumption available free of charge, at the accomodation, regardless of the regulations that may be in place at the time.... however, wine tasting at the vineyards may not be possible, as a result of the alcohol ban.

  13. Hi all, I need a little bit of help here. I am new to cycling and have gone out for a total of 2 rides since I got my bike last week. Now on these rides (both about 20km) I can't pedal consistently for more than a few minutes before I need to free wheel to 'catch my breath'. The pain in my quads burns like **** which forces me to stop pedaling. From a cardio perspective, I am unfit, however when I look at my HR data from Garmin my AVG is about 100bpm, so clearly I could continue, but its just that burn that stops me. I have been for a bike fit so I am confident that it is all setup fine. Is it just a case of me needing to ride more and more to 'get through it' and it will become less, or is there potentially a problem here? It's just the HR data throwing me off, which is why I thought to get a few opinions here. TIA

  18. Hi all. I'm new to the group. I'm currently cycle touring around South Africa and hoping that maybe someone has done a similar ride. I'm looking for a route from Johannesburg to Durban and plan to cycle it over a few days, I have found a few and have made some but not sure what they will be like and if the areas they go through are safe or not, it needs to be an alternative to the N3 as its very dangerous and I think its illegal to ride on highways here. I don't mind any distance, dirt roads, hills etc, if they include camping spots along the way then thats awesome to or I will find places to camp. I will be riding with a loaded bike and will have all my camping gear with me. Thanks for any advice, it will be highly appreciated.
  19. The Schitz beer vintage cycling jerseys caught my eye while looking for design ideas online. I created a brand new vector design of it. If I want one, I would need to order at least ten to keep costs down, obviously the more I order the more the costs will come down. Looking at +/- R1300 per shirt for Anatomic Performance Cut, 5mm zip and no Anatomic logo on outside. Would like one for myself and get the ball rolling in the new year if there is any interest, so pm me if you are keen and I will get back to you if I see there is interest in it.
  20. Good day all, I am Ryan Lenferna a B-Tech Industrial Design student at CPUT busy working on an exciting project relating to cycling and commuting in CAPE TOWN! My project revolves around: How can product design help manage the exposure to air pollution while commuting by bicycle in Cape Town? I would greatly appreciate it if you could take 2 minutes to fill in my survey below, thank you. Also any additional input is always welcome, Cheers, Ryan https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/R6WLQLB
  21. The 17th edition of the ever popular Bloem 24 Hour Mountain Bike event will once again take place in 2019. The Bloem 24 Hour MTB event will in 2019 be powered by Diesel Electric together with KYB Shock absorbers & NGK sparkplugs. The event will once again take place at VCSV Retief Camp grounds just outside Bloemfontein, next to Maselspoort on 30 Nov 2019. As one of the most popular mountain bike events on the calendar, riders can look forward to a fun filled year end challenge. The Race village will be taking on a brand new look with support zone and braai area moving to a new spot. With the Start/Finish “stoep” still the main feature on the race village area. With a brand new side by side bridge system planned to get riders in and out of the 7km lap, it’s going to provide an even more spectator friendly environment. The 2019 event will see Solo and Team categories compete for the title of the top dog after 24 Hours of riding. With a lap of 7km and an average accent of 80m per lap it could turn into an interesting race.http://www.24hourmtb.co.za/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/24-1-300x200.jpg In 2018 we saw a new solo male and female record set at the event.

With Diesel Electric, KYB Shock absorbers & NGK sparkplugs coming on board as the main sponsors to the event, we can all expect some fantastic changes and improvements to the event.http://www.24hourmtb.co.za/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/24-2-300x224.jpg The teams will be competing in any of the following categories, Open Team / Mixed team (2 Female, 3 Male) / Schools Team (allowed 1 extra rider). 24 Hour Coffee, Food and all kinds of snacks will be available at the race village, and lucky draw prizes will be going out every hour of the event to those who are on course.

  24. Spice Route Destination and Fairview Estate is one of the most visited attractions in the Winelands area . located lease than 30 min from Durbanville and 40 min from Strand and the City Bowl , it is the ideal venue to take the family or mates for a awesome day out. Spice Route has no less than 5 restaurants , a host of different artisans that include craft beer , gin , chocolate , cheese and 2 new kids play areas that include pump tracks . Developing a Hero Adventure Trail park was a no brainer and together with the land owners we have spent the better part of 18 months developing a network of trails to suit everyone . The Western Cape is blessed with many trails and trail parks .The variety and quality is probably right up there with the best in the world . But when designing and planning the trails at Spice Route our key focus was developing trails for the families and weekend warriors . With Hero - Rhebokskloof , Paarl Adventure Trails and Wild boar trails , the area is packed with great trails for the intermediate -experienced cyclist/runner . We felt there was a gap for trails for the less experienced , juniors and fun trails for tourists . Spice Route and Fairview is a venue where people visit to enjoy the views , wine , food and just have a great time . We have taken that foundation of fun and tried to put it into the trails we have developed . We wanted to develop trails that are not difficult , packed with features and provide a place where newbies - intermediate cyclists/runners can enjoy lots of fun single-track . The majority of trails on offer have very little elevation ,giving weekend warriors ,families and tourists the opportunity to get in some proper distance and experience all the great features on the farm . We have however added in a number of pockets where the more adventrous and experienced get their moneys worth . The 1st few months were not much fun . having to deal with difficult terrain and finding a happy medium between having set trails on a working farm . but as we move into the coming season we are really excited at how the park is developing . TRAILS: * 2 kids areas with obstacles and pump tracks * 3km Yellow Trail : A fun short trail through the vineyards close to the main buildings * 5km Pink Trail : A fun but pretty challenging trail that traverses down to the lower part of the farm and back up. it includes a 2km flow trail and forest , so packed with fun * 10km Green Trail : This Trail in our opinion is perfect for weekend warriors just getting started , families and tourists looking for a fun easy adventure . lots of single-tack , vineyards , olives and and .. * 20km Blue Trail : The popular trail for mates, tourists and families that want some proper distance but not technical . the blue showcases many different parts of the farm and terrain , packed with features and a great experience *35km Red Trail : The Red Trail was built for a great day out for the intermediate cyclist/runner .With all the fun and adventure of the blue but topped off with a few challenges and technical sections to get the adrenalin going . The Red trail also includes sections of the new XCO Trail we developed for provincial xco champs at Diamant Estate next door * XCO Trail : We have a dedicated 5km xco trail on the property next Door ( Diamant Estate ) where you get to experience some proper xco love , also included on the red trail * Link trails : There are also 2 link trails that go up Paarl Mountain and to Hero Adventure - Rhebokskloof .
