The fourth Oudtshoorn Youth Cycling Festival, organised by the Southern Cape Cycling Association, took place from Monday 30 June to Thursday 3 July and included provincial teams from Western Province, Eden (SWD), Boland, Free State and the Northern Cape. The Pedal Power Association, who supports sports development and upliftment in a safe environment, donated R15 000 towards the event to boost youth participation in cycling.

Congratulations to the organisers of the following events that were recently crowned 'Best in category' following the completion of the PPA funride year from 1 July 2013 to 30 June 2014:

Parents can teach their children to be safe cyclists by going out with them and leading by example. South African roads are public spaces and cyclists have the right to ride their bicycles on them but riding a bike on public roads is a huge responsibility and it is vital that children are made aware of the rules of the road as well as how to handle a bicycle in a safe and responsible way.

In the next 10 months, the Pedal Power Association will invest almost a half a million rand in developing cycle initiatives that will specifically benefit over 550 PPA members from previously disadvantaged communities throughout the Western Cape. In 2014-2015, the PPA will assist twelve clubs with projects that will be run by the clubs in their various communities. These include some 80 bicycles and helmets which will be given to excited newcomers to the sport; while over R130 000 will be granted towards assisting clubs to keep their bicycles on the road.  

For the past three years, the Pedal Power Association, a Public Benefit Organisation (PBO 18/11/13/2410), has been actively campaigning to improve the conditions of cyclists on the roads, running various local and national initiatives to bring across the message that CYCLISTS STAY ALIVE AT 1.5m.  The Association is now looking for a highly organised ‘go-getter' and avid cyclist who is passionate about the safety of cyclists, to take the campaign to the next level, based on international best practises around safe cycling.

Applications to the Pedal Power Association for funding of cycling-related projects that meet one or more of the Association's objectives closed on 24 March at 12h00, with 50 project funding applications having been received. We thank all applicants for their submissions. The evaluation process has...
