(29 August 2013, Cape Town) The Pedal Power Association today announced the launch of the PPA Toyota ‘Ride for your Life South Africa’ Tour scheduled to take place in September in support of their ongoing safety campaign, ‘Cyclists Stay Alive at 1.5m’ which urges motorists to pass cyclists with a safe berth of 1.5m. A group of cyclists will embark on a three-week, three-stage cycling tour starting in Johannesburg on 8 September.  They will pedal their way through a number of towns and cities to arrive in Cape Town on 28 September 2013.  

Entries for the 37th annual Cape Argus Pick n Pay Cycle Tour will open on Sunday 1 September 2013 at 1pm.  The Cycle Tour is recognised as the world's largest individually timed cycle race, annually attracting approximately 35000 cyclists from around the world to participate in this iconic event. “Thanks to our strong charity group entry focus, entry interest for 2014 is significantly higher than in previous years.  As a result, we’re anticipating individual entries selling out in record time this year,” said David Bellairs, Cape Town Cycle Tour Trust Director .

We have unexpectedly run into problems regarding the 2013 PPA Spring league, with two Spring road funrides informing us within the last week that they are either having to cancel the event or are unable to host a league event. This left only three league events for the Spring series. In addition, while we have received tacit approval from Western Cape Cycling that they will support PPA’s leagues, we expect final resolution between PPA and CSA to be reached only during September - after the date of the first road funride of the season.

Due to the problems experienced in the past with numbers getting lost in the post, we will not be posting road funride numbers this year. Your new number  will be available soon for collection from either the PPA office, the PPA AGM or the first...

The Cape Town Cycle Tour Trust has launched their innovative Training Wheels programme aimed at preparing novices to the sport of cycling to enter, train for, and participate in their first Cape Argus Pick n Pay Cycle Tour in 2014.  The fun, goal-oriented programme is aimed entirely at helping novices and first-time Cycle Tour entrants under the expert eye of career athlete and multi-qualified sport coach, Peter Huber. Applications are limited to 100 spots and are focused at Cape Town-based riders.

Too many cyclists have died on our roads, and we need YOU to help make a difference and raise awareness for safe passing distances and safer roads for all.  The Pedal Power Association and Toyota are proud to invite you to the launch of the PPA Ride for Your Life SA Tour in Johannesburg on Sunday 8 September 2013.

PPA ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING 2013 Notice is hereby given that the Annual General Meeting of the Pedal Power Association will be held on Monday 02 September 2013, at 18:00 for 18h30 at the Canal Walk Auditorium, Canal Walk Shopping Centre.

In February 2012, CSA wrote PPA out of its constitution despite PPA being granted entrenched rights in perpetuity in CSA’s founding constitution of 2004; PPA having been a primary motivator for unification prior to 2004.
