Car free day - 20 October


Recommended Posts

This was a post to the Adventure Race Community if you are interested:


Dear Fellow Cyclists

As you are aware, safety is an issue which is uppermost in the minds of all

cyclists. The Central Gauteng Cycling Committee has been working closely

with the Gauteng Department of Transport on various projects to improve the

safety for cyclists. One is the approval of road signage which will be

provided by the cycling community warning of the presence of cyclists on

various routes. The other is cycling specific lanes in certain areas. Whilst

there is much work to be done, we have the opportunity to once again raise

awareness of the issue by supporting the MEC of the Department of Transport

during Car Free Day (20 October 2006). The MEC has specifically agreed to

the involvement of cyclists as part of this project and will himself ride a

bicycle through the city centre together with as many cyclists as we can


Two groups will depart between 8.00 a.m and 9.00 a.m and cycle under Metro

escort to Park station, one from Southgate, the other from Fourways mall.

The combined group will then depart from Park station and ride, led by the

MEC to various points in the city. Thereafter the groups will once again

split up and return to their starting points under Metro escort.

We need your help to make this a success.

a.. As many club members as possible, all wearing club colours.

b.. Marshals

c.. Contact details for marshals

Please can you distribute this e mail urgently to your membership and try

and get us feedback on the possible participation of your members.
