Winter or not, it’s still a great time to ride our bicycles, whether it’s on the road or venturing into the mountains. However, it’s important to know where you may and may not ride, and to keep a few safety tips in mind.

The Hout Bay Cycling club celebrates its second successful year based at James House, a community NGO serving the poor of Hout Bay which provides a base for the club. By way of a thank you to Christo Reid, Director of James House, the club organised a charity ride to raise funds for James House projects. The ride was the brain child of Josh Rubenstein, a grade 12 Waldorf student and one of the club’s volunteer coaches. Josh selected four of the top riders to take part in the epic 400 km three day ride, which started from Hout Bay and averaged 133 km per day. The route took in three major passes: Helshoogte, Franschhoek and Bains Kloof and took the riders to places they had never been to before.

We’ve had several ladies from our events asking for skills training sessions for Road cycling and Mountain Biking. So we are giving you just that ;-). PPA brings you 3 road and 2 MTB workshops for beginners and intermediates at discounted PPA prices. Book your spot now as spaces are limited.
