Female cyclists who are looking to become more confident mountain bikers and looking for riding partners in the Tokai plantation, are invited to join Cyclelab on Tuesday mornings for MTB outrides. The rides cater for both novice and more advanced riders.

Jacobus Venter and Heletjie van Staden are the Elite WP road cycling champions for 2011, with Henry Fagan taking the Grand Masters title, Johan de Bod the Junior title, Zalene Tshoko the junior ladies title and Paul Mainking the Masters title. Other age group champions include William Saayman, Jennie Stenerhag, Aqeeb Abrahams, Triumph Baloyi, Qudissieyah Ceres, Gregory de Vink, Maroeshka Matthee and Christo Botha.

Johannesburg’s biggest cycle race ended in 10-man sprint finish to the line when Arran Brown won the small group sprint in front of his team mate Reinardt Janse van Rensburg. Arran finished 2nd last year and was the winner in 2009.

KILLARNEY CYCLE TRAINING Join us on 8 Nov for our last Tuesday training session of the year at Killarney. The track is unfortunately not available for the rest of November, and training sessions will resume in January 2012. SEEDED EVENT NUMBERS Please remember to bring and wear the blue road funride number to road events, and the brown funride number that says "MTB" on it, to MTB events. The numbers not only have different colours, but also a different numbering system. Because of the big difference in calculating road and MTB seeding, you will NOT be able to use your road number at a MTB event, or vice versa. Contact the PPA Office 2-3 days before an event  if you had not received a funride number to use at that event, or go to the PPA Mobile Office when you get to the event.

The last training session of the year will take place on Tuesday 8 November 2o11 (the track is not available for the remainder of November). Training will then resume on Tuesday 10 January 2012.
