KEDAR LODGE (SUN CITY) RIDE

Diarize the Kedar Lodge ride (you'll remember it as Sun City) now 16 June! Booking will open beginning of May, keep a look out for the link, it will be sent via SMS and newsletter.

Time: 06H00 Briefing Depart 6:30 - a little later because of light.
Depart: 06H30 sharp
From: Cycle Lab Fourways.

Cycle Lab Active invites you to enjoy the CLA Kedar Heritage Lodge Ride on Sunday 16 June - yes it's Fathers day so bring the family, you might even consider staying the night.

All the benefits, none of the downsides.
189 km of great riding that still includes the thrilling ride to our traditional stop in Cosmos. Then, instead of taking the Majakaneng offramp, we continue west towards Rustenburg.
Our new venue, Kedar Heritage Lodge is just 21 km from Sun City - click here to access Kedar, but a world away in terms of our offering to you.
We will recover beside the pool in a shaded area where a tasty buffet lunch awaits. We will have access to a few rooms for a post-ride/swim shower before heading back on the coach.

We have a few options for you to choose from:
1. Just the ride (Ride Only) – marshalled and supported - and you make your own way home @ R 250.00
2. The ride and lunch (as is) – as above, but you stay and enjoy the facilities and food at the venue. You still need to make your own way home @ R400.00
3. With this option, you can add extra friends and family to join us for lunch @ R 200.00 per head
4. The ride, lunch and coach return (Full Package) – the whole deal @ R550.00 each. Due to demand this option will be open to Club members first and is limited to a maximum of 50 riders due to limitations of spaces in the coach and on the bike trailers.

Please note that drinks are not included in any of the packages.

As always, there will be two groups – a C1/2 pace and a STRICTLY C3/D1 group. Each group will have its own support vehicle and there will be two refueling stops on the road.

Regret, no tri bikes, no tri bars, no mtb's, no tandems.

SUPPORT YOUR CLUB!

We try to offer informative, interesting and fun events on a regular basis for the benefit of club members.  These events involve a considerable amount of time, effort and expense in planning, communicating, arranging for a facilitator, organising staff to keep the store open, security to keep you safe, refreshments to keep you refreshed - it all adds up.   We ask for replies in order to know how many to expect and cater for, and it is very disappointing and disheartening when people have indicated they will attend and fail to turn up.

We appreciate there can be unexpected changes to plans, but please, if you book for an event, consider it a commitment and make every effort to attend. 

Race 2 the Sun

Megan Thorpe has five seats available for R2S on the 25th May. Cost will be R500.00 for transport which includes collection at Cycle Lab on the morning, drop off at Harties for the start, collection at Sun City and returned to Cycle Lab. It also includes a box of drinks, beers, Savannah’s cokes and waters for the way home. Our driver will hopefully be at least one watering point along the route. If you are interested in joining the team please contact Megan Thorpe on 084 469 4640.

For the serious riders there will also be great prize money at the end of the 167km and pro athletes have already lined up to claim the title of this spectacular race. Embrace the year of #NoExcuses, take up the challenge and enter now for Race to the Sun 2019.

BELL OF HOPE CHARITY RIDE FOR MENTAL WELLNESS
FUNDRAISING EVENT FOR EBENEZER PSYCHIATRIC HOME 

Ebenezer is a licensed non-profit organization {088-960 NPO} running a home for adults suffering from Bipolar Disorder or Schizophrenia, dependent on donations and assistance from the public and corporate sectors to keep the home open and functional.

155541534521.jpg

Every year a cycle race, the Bell of Hope Charity Ride for Mental Wellness, is held in the Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site which will take place on Sunday, 19th May 2019. The proceeds of this cycle event will go towards sustaining Ebenezer Psychiatric Home in Witpoortjie, Roodepoort.

The event is open to all members of the public and is a charity cycling event, not a race. There is a 50 km ride and a 15 km ride for the not so fit with prizes for the first three cyclists’ home for men, women, juniors, and for disabled cyclists. It will cost R150 for on-line entries and R180 for late entries. The past six years have been very well supported by the public and it is now becoming a favourite on the cycle calendar.

REPORT BACK ON PARYS RIDE

155358427167.jpg

All rides are GOOD… Some are BETTER… Parys 2019 was BEST

Writing about a ride can be tough. We do the same thing week in and week out and it involves sweat and power readings, heart rates and cadences. These are subjects that often get my wife Karen, rolling her eyes and heading to the fridge to top up her wine glass…

But, Thursday’s ride to Parys was about so much more.
The sunflowers were abundant in the fields. Miles and miles of sunflowers make me want to smile.
The Cosmos was in full bloom. If you’re a Comrades runner, you know that it’s a sign that you should be doing your longest distance. If you’re a cyclist, they soften the landscape and remind you that summer is waning.
The wind was gentle, gradually turning from a headwind to a tailwind on the last few kilometres.
The weather was warm without being too hot.

And, the people were fantastic!!
I met (another) Karen who was doing her first CLA ride. She was uber-nervous at the start and when I introduced myself formally around Randfontein, she was still stressing. For the last 20-odd kilometres, she had a personal peloton of 3 yellow shirts and the ever-present William in the van behind her. Her smile, as we rolled into Stonehenge in Parys was radiant.
The two Debbie’s chatted their way up every hill and down the other side. They brought a lightheartedness to the ride that was so refreshing. They reminded me why we ride our bikes… to spend some quality time with great people in beautiful places.
Poor Tertius got volunteered to help marshal the front group. Despite hanging on by his fingernails for nearly 100 miles, he jumped in the van after finishing to drive back along the route to support the stragglers coming home.
Mills fixed a puncture or two… more like eight. In fact. I reckon that Mills drove the route on the previous evening to drop glass and nails at regular intervals, just to that he can show off his Formula 1 type wheel changing skills… He also fixed broken spokes and Di2 batteries, all while sweeping the back of the bunch to ensure that no-one got left behind. And then, he told some dad jokes…
Nic Z spent most of the ride on the front of the fast group, as a gentle warm-up for Sunday’s 400 km Audax. As one does…
Mike rode it on a gravel bike, and dropped me on my super-aero, high-tech, carbon fibre missile! Ken realized that there is no Champs Elysees in Parys. Andre and Colleen showed that you should get your partner to ride.

If you weren’t there, you missed a special day.
If you were there, thank you for adding to the bank of happy memories.
Remember that we really appreciate any feedback. Obviously, we love kudos and compliments. We also really want to know what we can do to make the Cycle Lab Adventures rides even better. Drop Alix a mail or reach out to us after a club ride if you’d like to help us to up our game.

Next up is the iconic June 16 Sun City Winter Ride – that’s the one that doesn’t go to Sun City… Watch for the comms as once again, we’re limited to just 60-odd cyclists.

WEEK 12

Awesome D4 Ride this past Saturday

155298339552.jpg

We started out with 13 riders. It was a stunningly cool ride, temperature wise. The group was pretty vocal and called out all obstacles to the back impressive!! One rider turned back at Val Verde, still recovering from a tough 6.5 hr Argus. We caught her at Steyn City. One of the group puctured and was going to meet us on the way back, but he beat us to CycleLab. We climbed the hill to the Telkom Tower and then turned left and on to the big Tree where we made our U turn to come back. Well done to Colleen for keeping the energy high and the comms effective. Also just a couple of pointers to improve physique and cycling efficiency. CycleLab Group Rides ROCK!!!

WEEK 11

WILRO LIONS CYCLE CHALLENGE CANCELLED

Gauteng Cycling has announced the following:

We are very sorry to announce that due to circumstances beyond our control, we have had to cancel the Wilro Lions Cycle Challenge this year.

We have been advised by the relevant authorities that the R24 between Tarlton International Raceway and the Orient Road has been closed after residents in the area ‘chopped’ a 2m trench across the road during protest action.

The authorities cannot guarantee that the road will be repaired by the date of our cycle race (7 April) and there is also no guarantee that it won’t be destroyed again after it has been repaired.

The cyclists’ safety is of paramount importance to us as organisers and taking all of the above into account, it was decided that the best option for everyone would be to cancel the event.

We wish to apologise to all cyclists for any convenience caused as a result of the cancellation of the race.

CONDOLENCES

Our deepest condolences to family and friends of Janine Olivier, one of our Road Rangers who support the club so selflessly.

In the words of our Head Girl Colleen, we are deeply sorry to hear of the passing of Janine. She was such a bright soul and so strong in her faith. I hope that faith supports all of you and her family at such a sad time. As her husband said – she was doing what she loved so much – offering protection and keeping cyclists safe. We are heartbroken for you all and as a cycling community we offer our condolences, with deepest gratitude for what Janine and all of you have done for us.
