November 2013

The new PPA Tread Lightly Twilight MTB ride on Friday 13 December 2013 is something different - and should definitely not be missed. Amongst others, the first 250 participants who enter by Friday 29 November will each receive a lovely gift; lucky draw prizes will go to the best fancy dress costumes at the event; the routes are devised to be non-technical but FUN, and Santa will definitely be at the event...

Sunday 8 December is a special day on the cycling calendar: It is a day when the focus falls solely on female cyclists, with husbands, boyfriends and partners looking after the kids while the women take to the roads. The PPA’s ‘Heels on Wheels’ funride aims to demystify cycling for the average female cyclist, creating a friendly and doable event where the emphasis is primarily on getting to the finish line – and having heaps of fun along the way. The funride will start at 06h30 at the Simonsvlei Wine Estate near Paarl. Choose from one of three routes: a tough 53 km which includes the climb over Helshoogte; an undulating 38 km or an easy and relatively flat 22 km. Great lucky draw prizes include cycling clothing, various hampers and shopping vouchers.

20 November 2013: “It was with mixed feelings that we received the new Extraordinary Provincial Gazette 7194 of the Western Cape Government, published on 20 November 2013,” said PPA Chairman Steve Hayward.  The Gazette refers to the Western Cape Province Road Traffic Administration Act 2012 (Act 6 of 2012): Safety of cyclists’ regulations 2013.

Tuesday this week is a busy one with a Killarney training session today. Looking forward to the weekend, Saturday's Coronation Double Century is one of PPA's oldest events and remains a firm favourite. For the fairer sex: Entries have opened for the PPA Heels on Wheels @ Simonsvlei all-female road funride on 8 December - pre-entries only, enter now! And lastly, read more about the wonderful new  fun late-afternoon twilight ride on Friday 13 December.

Members will recall that earlier this year we posted an affidavit as to why PPA lodged a High court application against CSA.  The latest update is that we are currently in settlement discussions with CSA and the court date has been reset to 5 December...
