    Karoo 2 Coast

    Good Day Bike Hubbers So I entered teh The Karoo 2 Coast. This year was my first year that I rode the CTCT and fortunately or unfortunately I started to enjoy the long distance races. But now I have a huge dilemma. I need a training plan for the Karoo 2 Coast because at this moment it feels like I am not doing anything right. Please if any of you have at least a week's training programme and what else I can do to prepare for the Karoo 2 Coast I will appreciate it greatly! Even if you could recommend what I can do extra for the preparation, like Crossfit or Pilates it will help. Lastly will it be good for me to do races like 'Around the Pot' and 'Cederberg Tip Trans' in preparation for the Karoo 2 Coast? Thanks alot
  4. Hi Just note the entries have opened for this race. http://www.karootocoast.com/ THE RACE DATE IS 24TH SEPTEMBER 2017 The Pennypinchers Lions Karoo to Coast Mountain Bike Challenge is a 100km off road race from UNIONDALE to KNYSNA via the Prince Alfred's Pass. The route is scenic, challenging and riders are encouraged to train sufficiently for this event in order to maximise the enjoyment of the experience.
  5. The 18th edition of the Pennypinchers Lions Karoo to Coast Mountain Bike Challenge took place on Sunday the 18 September 2016 with over 96 kilometres of cycling from Uniondale to Knysna. Entries for the 2016 event sold out in record time and over 4500 local and international, happy riders gathered under clear cool skies at the start line on Voortrekker Street in Uniondale on Sunday.

  6. Photo: Desmond Scholtz Photography “It is the ‘Argus’ of mountain biking,” commented many fun riders on the day. Riders seem to keep on coming back to improve their time each year. The hospitality in Uniondale, where over 1500 athletes sit together and enjoy a top quality meal prepared by the friends and family of the Uniondale Lions, adds a very special touch to the race. The route is breathtakingly beautiful with such a vast contrast of scenery and terrain. It sets a great challenge for any rider – it is not too technical, so people who want to accomplish a goal of riding 100km on a mountain bike, can do so. The Lions of Knysna managed the finish at the Knysna High School this year and over 10 000 people enjoyed the sunshine while watching the riders cross the line. The Lions of Uniondale and Knysna own the event and ALL proceeds from the event go to charity. Event organiser – Zandile Meneses – said that the water points were managed by teams from the Uniondale Lions, the Knysna Education Trust, the Rotary Club of Knysna and the Eden Lions. The newly established Bitou Lions Club managed the transport of food to the points and the Sea Cadets helped with the hand out of medals at the finish venue. Marshals included volunteers from the Syndicates Motorbike Club, Knysna Sports School, Knysna Round Table and Allsound Security. The event hopes to raise awareness of the constructive work of charities in our area. The event gives donations to volunteers who help on the day and who do fantastic work in the local communities.

Photo: Desmond Scholtz Photography “This year we were very grateful to have had minimal incidents, considering the size of the field and we have our marshals, safety officer, medics and Municipal services to thank for this. We have a team of experienced and dedicated people behind the scenes who help us to take care of the riders.”All proceeds from the event go to Sightfirst, the South African Guide Dog Association and other urgent needs in the community. The Knysna and Uniondale Lions handed over a cheque for R100 000.00 to the Guide Dog Association at prize giving on Sunday. The organisers want to emphasise that the event is focused on providing a positive experience for people who appreciate the JOY and fun of cycling in nature. The entries for the 2017 event will open on the 20th January 2017 and riders can take a look at their results at www.karootocoast.com and their photos can be purchased from Jetline Action Photo.

  7. Hi all, Need some advice please. I broke my clavicle on Sunday during Die Burger MTB. This is my first injury on this scale. I am going for an operation tomorrow, Fri 07-Aug. Those who have experienced broken clavicles before, how long is the average recovery? I have entered the K2C, which is 6 weeks after the operation. Will I still be able to participate under normal recovery conditions? Your inputs will be much appreciated. thks/brgds
  8. Hi Guys, a bunch of mates and I are doing the K2C for the first time this year. We have booked accommodation in Knysna and I'm trying to find out if there is somewhere safe for us to park our bike off for the Saturday night, prior to race day. The intention is to go up on Saturday (to Uniondale) and register, have dinner, get a feel for the event etc, and then head back down to Knysna. the following morning we'll head up to Uniondale in one vehicle (with a driver) and do the ride. Any suggestions/advice. Thanks!!
