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.
