The good news is: After years of talking about it, we are finally able to split road and MTB seeding and from now on, our members will have a different road and MTB PPA seeded number. To set the ball rolling and to test the new system, we are now issuing new MTB ‘back numbers’ to all paid-up PPA members who participate in MTB events on the PPA calendar; the intention being to replace the MTB back numbers with permanent PPA seeded frame numbers from 2012.

The Pedal Power Association ‘gave back’ to the community when committee and staff members of the Association, together with local Traffic Officers, a PPA cycling marshal  and friends of the PPA, spent a few chilly hours on Thursday 14 July to hand bicycle helmets and lights to commuters from the Danoon informal settlement.

Earlier this morning, cycling commuters from the Masiphumelele informal settlements were quite apprehensive when they were pulled off the road near the Sun Valley four-way intersection, but their apprehension soon turned to delight when the Pedal Power Association handed them free cycling helmets, while at the same time fitting red reflecting lights to their bicycles.

The City of Cape Town has approved a revised Traffic Calming Policy that states that the safety of people (whether walking or cycling) in residential areas is paramount and takes precedence over vehicle mobility. Pedestrians and accidents have always been considered in the assessments but are now weighted more heavily. For example, the number of pedestrians and cyclists, as well as previous occurrences of vehicle accidents on a particular street, will now lend even greater weight to the consideration of traffic calming measures.

The Western Cape Minister of Safety, Dan Plato, has released the following statement regarding safety on Table Mountain: "Following my meeting during the week with law enforcement, SANParks and the chairperson of the Table Mountain Forum I am satisfied that all parties are committed to leaving no stone unturned to increase safety on Table Mountain. "With 25 new field rangers reporting for duty with Table Mountain National Park today, SANParks has stepped up patrols in areas identified as crime hotspots on the mountain chain.
