UPCOMING EVENTS:

Fourways are hosting the Lumpy's Ride 22 March

158340208461.jpg

This is one for the climbers. It’s the shortest of all our CLA rides at just(?) 145 km, but it climbs the most at nearly 1700 metres.

We will be running a KOM section on the ride. This Strava segment will be raced over the section known as Climb 1 from the parking area.
The hill is 2.31 km long rising 183 m at an average gradient of 8%! The climb is classified as a Category 3.
It comes at 65 km into the ride so your legs should be nicely warmed up.
To qualify, you’ll have to join our Strava group for the day where times will be recorded via the magic of the app. The entire group will come to a complete standstill at the bottom, before being set off by the ride captain in your group. 3-2-1-GO!!!
Prizes from Biogen for the fastest male and female climbers who will also be adorned in Polka Dot Hundreds and Thousands together with the bragging rights of owning the First Ever CLA KOM. 
And of course, the adoration and admiration of all and sundry… you may even get your photo into the Cycle Lab newsletter. The rewards are endless - 

The ride starts from the Virgin Active in Meyersdal at 6.00. It takes about 40 minutes to get there from Sandton.
We will ride in two groups – C1/2 and C3/D1. 
We ride to SBR in our normal disciplined Cycle Lab formation where we will stop to refill bottles before heading off to tackle the hills. SBR can be ridden at your own pace. However, to participate in the KOM, you need to be with your group at the start of the segment.
At the end of the loop, we will regather at the gate, stock up on drinks and head back to Meyersdal. Always into the prevailing headwind…

Back at Meyersdal, we’ll grab a quick drink or bite at the News Café before driving back home to enjoy our Heritage Day braai. You can even pop into the Virgin Active for a quick shower if you’re a member
Entry to the event costs just R 180. That includes a following support vehicle, marshalled groups and drinks and gels from our friends at Biogen.

If you'd like to join us for the SBR loop only, you’re most welcome too. You’ll meet us at the gate, ride the loop and get home early enough to have an extra beer or two with the braai. The cost is the same.
