Big club ride planned for the holiday, 21 March 2013.

It will start at Atterbury Value Mart at the Columbia store. 07:00.
This will be an easy ride just to get to know some of the faces you have seen and wondered about.

Weather prediction at this stage looks like a warm sunny day peaking at 28 degrees with afternoon showers.

SEE YOU THERE!!

2013 Argus. What a jol Cape Town is!
We had the privilege to stay at Dreamhouse Guesthouse. WOW!! 3 x WOW. http://www.dreamguesthouse.co.za/
Good luck letters for the Argus. Special breakfast pack for the day. Fairwell drinks. The hostess’ attention to detail was impeccable!! We could not have had a better stay in Cape Town!! Definitely recommended. But they come at a price so be prepared. Brownie points in the bank is more worth that the $$$ in the bank!

So my Argus ride itself was pretty dull. Except for the nice medal I received at the finish for completing my 10Th race. Special to say the least!
I pedaled out from Houtbay for a nice 20km warm up to the start. The wind was a bit cruel but tame compared to some of the previous tours.

The race itself was interesting. The girls made it difficult to play tactics in the VA bunch and I got caught napping at the back of the bunch on the bottom of Chappies. That was the race over for me. We crused in leisurely in a time of 02:54. All my teeth and skin still on me and not on the tar. Success!

Argus for me a more about the vibe and the expo and the good food! Cape Town has so much to offer in this regard. Not to mention the spectacular views and scenery.
We’ll be back next year…….

We win at Rooiwal

World Funride Champs: Rooiwal. Playground of our club. In general we love the route. It is challenging and always hard. Good clean fun.

This weekend one of the young guns, Ian Pienaar, made his mark when he won the Rooiwal race. And not just the normal “Rooiwal” encounter. The prize money offered was HUGE!
Second placed rider was Petri Strydom…..one of the fastest sprinters I know and green jersey wearer in Tour de Maurice. Thus Ian did very well to outfox the field for a win.

HUGE CONGRATIULATIONS!!!!
You have made us proud!
