  1. Greetings everyone, As many now, I am involved in organising a race and lending some help with others. Each event has it's unique challenges and is almost impossible to please everyone all of the time. The idea is to please as many of the cyclists as often as one can. From the list (above), what is important to you as a cyclist - I've tried to split it between ROAD and MTB. Please don't compare to the BIG MTB events in the sticks that enjoy big, mountainous climbs - we don't have such luxuries in the urban centres. I'm trying to get an objective view of what people would like, compare it against what is possible, and then see how we can get other organisers to buy into the collective ideas to make as many races as possible satisfactory. You'll notice that the ROAD poll has an option called PERMANENT NUMBER. While I am still trying to get some officials and race organisers to buy in the PERMANENT NUMBER concept to ease the hassles related to number collection, this one is specific to the event I am associated with: Assume the permanent number concept doesn't take off, and the status quo remains as is, would you buy a permanent "cloth" number that can be used exclusively at our event for the years ahead (and maybe one or two others)?Feel free to add to the list and submit your comments, which I hope will help my efforts to bring about improvements in cycling (in our province and perhaps elsewhere too).

  3. Road closure infographic for the aQuellé Tour Durban presented by Sunday Tribune. The route is unchanged from last year and riders have endorsed the popular course that heads south from the start at Moses Mabhida Stadium before heading up the hill through Queensburgh to Pinetown, then down to the Umgeni Interchange before concluding with the popular coastal out-and-back leg on the M4 freeway. With the full backing of the Durban City Metro Police department the road closures will start from 5:30am and will be re-opened as soon as possible after the last cyclists have cleared each sector. The race organisers have stressed that they will strive to keep inconvenience to local residents to a minimum on the day, and will re-open the roads to normal traffic as promptly as possible after the sweep vehicles have confirmed that the last of the riders has left that section of the road. The route for the 105km race at the aQuellé Tour Durban presented by Sunday Tribune. The race has mushroomed in popularity in recent years largely because riders appreciate riding the major roads around Durban under the safety of a total road closure. The race committee has extended its appreciation to Durban residents for accommodating the road closures on the day of the race, and the positive spirit shown by many residents along the route who turn out to support the riders during the race. The event falls in line with the broader strategy of the City of Durban to position itself as a premier sporting events destination on the African continent.
