Just 10 days after entries for the 2014 Cape Argus Pick n Pay MTB Challenge opened, two thirds have already been snapped up, leaving only 1 000 entries still available for the four mountain biking routes.
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 to co-ordinate the campaign and take it to the next level.
