29 Jun 2012 Women’s Road and MTB skills workshops
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.
PPA has teamed up with “Bike and Saddle” to bring you a basic road skills training session while enjoying a fabulous guided city cycle, especially designed for women. You will not only learn some cycling skills but will also learn about Cape Town City, its culture and its heritage.
Special launch price for PPA members and Tread Lightly entrants: R170 pp if you bring and use your own bicycle and helmet; R230 pp if the bicycle and helmet is supplied by Bike & Saddle. (This tour normally costs over R600).
After a 30 min educational slot, you’ll do a gentle 2-hour cycle, and finish off with some great light refreshments. Min 5, max 8 people per session/tour so book soonest! For more information, go to www.facebook.com/pedalpowerassociation
