101% don't you live out in that area?  When we train out there we generally head towards Bapsfontein via Kempton Park (and always have to bring our passports.) bruce2006-09-21 01:29:40

road or mtb?

 

Finish Line Cycles (in Kempton) have regular rides (mtb & road) from the shop.

 

Pomona/Bredel/Bapsfontein area seems the most popular.

Yes I live in the EAST!!!!! so beware!!! You can easily spot me in my Ford XR6 wiff de blue lights unda de kar and de big boot spoiler pop rivitted on de back wiff fur on de dashboard!!Big%20smile

 

We actually got some good routes out this way. Theres a bedfordview group which rides every morning 5h30, from the BP next to News cafe. they usually do a 60k loop around Boksburg- kempton area, or if you want some hills you can always do some loops around Fishers hill or Sylvia's pass near Bruma Lake. The loop around the airport going down Atlas road which has a nice wide cycling friendly shoulder.Smile

tamaties, are you coming to visit GP?

 

101%, what's the avg speed of the 5:30 group?  And where is the BP and the News Cafe?  And, last question, what time do they finish?

The News Cafe is on Van Buuren Road, at the traffic light where Nicol meets Van Buuren in Bedfordview. The BP is on the corner of Kings and Van Buuren, about 200m past the News Cafe.

 

And yes riding with the BCC boys is generally fast. I ride on Saturdays and the averages speeds are usually around 35km/h! But what do you expect when Craig and Marco are setting the pace!

There are some good routes if you get onto Modderfontein, and then turn left towards Thembisa/Chloorkop and on to Midrand. I've done loops of anything between 45-80km out that direction.

tamaties, how many kms you want to do?  I'm not going out, but a very good friend of mine might take you out over Irene-Centurion, etc, depends on your distance.
