Congratulations to everyone who participated in the 2011 Cape Argus Pick n Pay Cycle Tour. What an event! And how great was the weather! If you missed doing the Cycle Tour this year, now is a good time to start training for 2012 😉
Congratulations to the following five PPA members who were spotted riding the Cycle Tour in their PPA cycling shirts, and who have each won a year’s free PPA membership: Edward Birch, Nelis du Plessis, Russel Paulse, Vincent Raepsaet and Paul Reeves. You’ll receive further notification in this regard via email.
PPA WACKY WHEELS OVERNIGHT TOUR
There are still a few places left for the PPA Wacky Wheels Overnight Tour from Pringle Bay to Onrust on 2 – 3 April 2011. This is a social, laid-back camping trip where the emphasis is on having fun and enjoying your bicycle as a means of transport, with coffee stops, a wine tasting, great food, a quiz and a wacky lucky draw thrown in for good measure. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org and get your entry in soonest.
