PPA Saturday Social Rides
The PPA social rides take place every Saturday morning:
SHORT RIDE (BEGINNER GROUP):
NB: PLEASE NOTE THERE WILL BE NO BEGINNER RIDES UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
INTERMEDIATE GROUP: PLEASE NOTE THERE WILL BE NO INTERMEDIATE GROUP RIDE ON 1st JULY 2022 DUE TO WEATHER CONDITIONS
Rides take place on Saturday mornings from various locations confirmed weekly on social media. Rides are ideal for intermediates who would like to build confidence on the road and hone in on-bike skills, all under the mentorship and guidance of fellow riders, and within the safety of a group. The pace of the ride is dictated by the slowest rider. The group stays together and no one is left behind. There is a ride captain. Rides are approximately 2-3 hours. The routes vary from week to week and will be confirmed on social media weekly. Join us every Saturday, it’s free.
TIME: Meet at 6:45 for a 7:00 start
WHEN: Every Saturday
WHERE: PPA Offices Mowbray, Liesbiek Parkway
ROUTE: Riders leave the PPA offices along Liesbiek Parkway towards Constantia, towards Firgrove Way, Steenberg Rd and along Westlake Drive. Riders will make the climb up Boyes Drive and descend onto Main Rd, return along Tokai Rd, right into Firgrove Way, Ladies Mile Extension and Parish Rd. The group will then complete one loop of the Alphen Climb before returning to the PPA offices through Wynberg and Newlands.
The support vehicle will be available to assist riders who experience any difficulties along the route.
Please ensure that your lights are charged and that your equipment is riding ready and safe. You are required to bring along tubes and spares.
