Road Ride Report – Oswald Kydd:
After a prayer we discussed the routes and we headed out in an easterly direction along Lynnwood. As we crossed Solomon Mhlangu we had to stop as I felt a little too high on the saddle. We continued past the Boschkop turnoff and continued on Graham road to the T-Junction. We stopped a bit to regroup. He continued left at the T-Junction and headed back towards the Cullinan Main Road. We climbed Diamond Hill as a group and recovered on the other side. We then turned left back towards town at the four way stop where I set the pace up and over the climb. We then managed a good steady pace back to town and took slow and easy, stopping at red traffic lights. Apart from the chilly morning air we managed a good ride all the way round.

After a short delay we headed towards town, before turning left at the Gautrain line. It was quite fresh for most of the way. As we headed up Eeufees where we passed another cyclist and we kept the pace steady all the way to the top. We went through the Military base and out the other side to the top of Erasmia. We proceeded towards the Petrol stations at Diepsloot where the group split slightly just before reaching them and we regrouped. We made the U-Turn at the garages and headed back to town with a bit of a headwind.

WEEK 22 - 2019

CYCLE LAB SUPERCYCLING CLUB LYNNWOOD NEWS

Know your Group Leader: Theresa Klopper

155902596714.jpg 155902596731.jpg 155902596776.jpg 
I am a Test Analyst in the FNB iDigi Tech Mainframe Team, Club Administrator of the Cycle Lab Active Lynnwood club, wife to Koos Klopper and mother of two teenagers.
When Koos and I met, he was playing tennis and I went to gym three times a week. After we got married he wanted me to play tennis as well. He got the best coach in Pretoria to coach me. After a few lessons the poor guy called Koos up and explained to him that I had NO ball sense and that is something he can’t teach, you either have it or you don’t. Lol!
Koos gave up on that one and I became a tennis spectator.
A friend of mine told me that her boyfriend presents spinning classes at Waterglen Centre and that I should come and try it some time. Not long after that I attended my first spinning class. During that time spinning was big and you could find spinning studios all over Pretoria. The spinning studio I joined was presented by a crazy red head pro elite cyclist at the time named Rupert Rheeder. He was working at a cycling shop who owned the spinning studio.
The one day I convinced Koos to join me for a spinning class and told him that he will not survive a class. As you know, to tell a man something like that he must proof it wrong and so he started joining me in Rupert’s spinning classes. It wasn’t long after that when Rupert convinced us to buy our first road bikes and that is how it all started!
We started to enter road races and soon was hooked on the sport. I completed the Jock Cycle Tour in 2001 and found out the same day that I was pregnant with Christiaan. I cycled till 6 weeks before his birth, monitoring my heart rate. While I was on maternity leave I started attending spinning classes again and took Christiaan in his carry cot putting him next to the bike during classes.
In those days the Mountain Bike was not yet born and it was only years later that I got my first mountain bike. It was a 26” hard tail GT Zaskar. Since then I upgraded to a KTM hard tail, Silverback Storm 2 (my first 29” bike), my Momsen Vipa and now, the love of my life – my KTM Scarp Master.
In 2012 to 2013 I met up with a school friend of mine who (in our years of not seeing each other) fell in love with running. So, we did a few half-marathons together and we did a few mountain bike races together and so the interest started to enter duathlons. I loved the combination and got podium positions for some races and in 2013 qualified for the SA team to go to worlds in Canada. The catch was that we had to find our own sponsors. I tried my best contacting quite a few big companies, even my employer at the time but no one was interested. I was so upset and disappointed that I could not go but God knew what laid ahead and the week that we would have been in Canada for worlds Koos was in a serious accident which almost took his life and which changed our lives forever.
Since we started cycling I met the most amazing people and during that difficult time I would not have survived if it wasn’t for God’s Grace, the support and prayers from my mom (still my pillar of strength at 83), the cycling community, friends and family who carried us through it. God put people on my path during that time to comfort me, giving me messages and I was never in my life as aware of God’s presence as during that time. I can testify that we serve a living God.
It was during that time that I realised how a close knit group of people the cycling community is. Ida Eloff, a cycling friend of mine, without my knowledge organised a group of my friends to take turns to cook for us and each evening delivered food at our house or at the hospital, so that we have one less thing to worry about, thanks ladies. Jason Ward, visited Koos daily (as his brother and they believed him) just to see his friend. Wessel Ollewagen and Henry Munnik was either helping Koos’s dad out at the shop (Koos had his own bicycle shop at the time) or sitting in the ICU waiting room, just to be close to their friend, although they were not allowed to go in. Wessel and Henry would get me on my bike although I sometimes refused, they would drag me kicking and screaming to ride my bike. Those rides kept me sane, thanks guys.
I kept a book at the shop where cyclist came in the shop and wrote encouraging messages for him – this book is still next to my bed. Gary Blem phoned me at least every second day to hear how Koos is doing. Karen Birkenbach, Martie Venter and Chrystal Ward sat with me at the hospital in between visiting hours, sometimes I didn’t even say anything but there they were holding my hand, comforting me for hours. Cyclists visited Koos at home when I had to go back to work and my Mom looked after Koos who, during the first few months could barely sit up straight. Francois carried Koos out of his car to specialists’ rooms and back to his car.
That is why I love what I do for the club and why I love the sport and the people so much! People who cycle have soul.

155902596751.jpg 155902597620.jpg
For me it is not about winning or competing it is about the experience, the escape from the crazy world we live in and about spending time in nature breathing and smelling the air with people who are my people, enjoying the ride, the views and the company. It is also about supporting my husband, two kids and club members racing, sharing in their joy when they experience the improvement of hard work and dedication.
The last year I got hooked on Ultras and completed two Cullinan2Tonteldoos races and a Race2theSun and I plan to do the Trans Baviaans next year.
There is one stage race that I am dreaming of doing and that is the Sani2C, if all goes according to plan I will be there on the start line next year with my Cullinan2Tonteldoos partner.
Hope to share a trail with you soon.

Good luck too everyone racing this weekend – Mountain Bikers and Roadies! Those who are not racing consider joining the outride at the AWESOME Buffelsdrift bike park.

Know your Group Leader: Carike Schoeman

155842003947.jpg 155842003952.jpg 155842003924.jpg 155842003979.jpg
I am a systems librarian, working in an academic library and in the final stages of completing my degree in Information Science with UNISA. I have a keen interest in aviation photography and love travelling.
Being very accident prone, I have spent most of my school days participating in cultural activities and have never been good at any sports. As I entered the final stages of primary school, I was determined to play hockey in high school, which I think gave my parents some sleepless nights. My sister and I got new bicycles for Christmas in 1986 and with the high school much closer to home, meant that we would be cycling between school and home. I think that is where my love for cycling really started. My bicycle gave me freedom to move around and after an accident in PT class, which shattered my knee cap, I have finally given up hope to participate in any sport and returned to the choir benches.
After school, I kept on riding my bicycle three to four times a week and at some point, my father joined me. We ventured on some excursions and even entered a few races, but somehow I never thought that any distance beyond 35km will be doable. My dad and I dreamed about the Argus, but after being retrenched, I found myself searching for a permanent position and somehow could not find the time to cycle. Our weekday rides became weekend rides and eventually no rides at all.
My father passed away in 2009 and I finally landed a permanent position back in the Information industry in 2013, the same year that I overturned a car and found myself taking a serious look at myself. I slowly realised that I need to get fit again and made various attempts at the gym, park run and swimming, but somehow the excitement was very short lived. It was only in the beginning of 2017 that a photographer friend was looking for someone to start cycling with him. I dusted off my old mountain bike and after our second outing to Rosemary Hill, realised that mountain biking has changed a lot in 17 years and that it was perhaps time to get a new bicycle. After a visit to Lynnridge mall I saw the signage for Cycle Lab and made a quick stop to see what they have. One week later I was the proud owner of my current Axis and I immediately entered my first Nissan Trailseeker at Buffelsdrift.
On the day of the event my friend persuaded me to change my entry from the 10km to the 20km and at that point I only had my Axis for a week and did not own any cycling clothes. I would be lying if I said it was fun and managed to finish last with a time of 2:23:37. With so much money invested in the new bike, I knew that this was only the beginning and have not yet looked back. Later the same year I also purchased a Merida road cycle and have since become very comfortable with distances between 40km and 60km with the road bike. After missing the 42km cut-off with two minutes in the 947 of 2018, I realised that I need to cycle much more and decided to sell my entry for the 2019 Cape Town Cycle Tour (Argus).
Somehow during the past two years I have realised that I always loved cycling and that it is a sport that I can do without being last all the time. I have revisited the list of races that my dad and I dreamt about and have decided that nothing is impossible. Even though I never cycled beyond 35km with him, I felt really proud of myself when I completed my first 98km during the East Rand Classic recently and knows that distance is no longer an issue. Being interested in the world of information and data also sees me comparing efforts regularly and I have recently completed another Nissan Trailseeker 20km event in a mere 1:34:21, reminding me of how far I have come in two years. I would also like to thank the Cycle Lab family for always encouraging me for pushing a bit harder and making me believe that I can do it. Hopefully someday I will be able to enter one of the biggies with you.

Group C Road Ride Report by Wesley Drake:
It was great to see so many roadies ready to put rubber to the road on Saturday morning. After a briefing by Koos and a prayer by Glynn, the groups rolled out the Cycle Lab Lynwood parking.
The C-Group followed in the B-Group’s shadow along Lynwood road, George Storrar and around fountains. The red lights were assisting us to do so, as they pulled a gap on us, only for us to catch them stopped at the next red light.
We kept the pace steady on the short climb last Voortrekker Monument, allowing the muscles to warm up to the beautiful day already taking shape. We headed through Valhalla and right onto Main Road. A steady pace took us to the turnaround point at the petrol station, just before Diesploot. We passed the B-Group again as they dealt with a puncture off to the left of the road.
As we took the turnaround, everyone was well warmed up and looking strong so I picked up the pace on the front of the group heading back and out of Erasmia. We turned right, heading past Zwartkops on the fun descent before a left onto Wierda. We bounced our way along the rough tarred road before taking a left on Botha. After heading around Fountains, we tackled the climb up the R21 and up Klapperkop. With a split in the group on the climb, we regrouped at the top of Klapperkop, sharing a laugh and enjoying the view.
From there, it was easy down and out of Waterkloof, through Brooklyn and an easy ride through the suburbs back to the Lab. It was a great morning out, successfully riding the 90km in an average of just over 27km/hr, with 900 meters ascent. As I say, if we don’t take ourselves out our comfort zone, we’ll never improve. Well done to the entire C-Group! Until next week... WD

Group B Road Ride Report by Oswald Kydd

155842005180.jpg
We left the shop after a brief route update and prayers to give thanks. As we headed out on Lynnwood towards the varsity we were continuously caught at the majority of robots especially after crossing the freeway. We rode the climbs up to the top of Eeufees steadily and passing through the Military base as we headed towards Erasmia. The road was thankfully very quiet at that time and we kept a good steady pace until we had a puncture just before the U-turn at Diepsloot, as we repaired the puncture the C-group passed us just as we started riding again. We headed back towards town with a slight head wind and eased on the pace in consideration of the nasty climb at the right hand turn onto the R55. We continued along the R5 and then turned left onto Wierda road where the traffic started to get a bit busier. We continued along Wierda until we made a turn towards Botha Avenue where we proceeded through the Fountains Circle and down towards Lynnwood before turning to go up and over Kings Highway before heading back to Cycle Lab Lynnwood via Lynnburn, Camelia and Jacobsen.

It was a fresh morning as we started out with a somewhat smaller group than usual due to mountain bike and road races.
We headed down Jacobsen towards Meiring Naude and then through Waltloo past Silverton towards Zambezi. We passed the Baviaanspoort prison and continued towards Cullinan.
We climbed a few small hills and some long drags before we saw the mine shaft outside Cullinan. We started on a small climb and ended up at an unexpected Road Closure.
As we took the “detour” the road narrowed quite drastically and then the climb pitched to around 11%. Although the climb hurt, some of the guys managed to ride up with the climb ahead of the group.
We regrouped at the top, turned right and headed back via Rayton towards the N4 and Simon Vermooten picking up the pace a little towards town.
We regrouped once more on Simon Vermooten before the last stretch to the shop.

I am a Certified Financial Planner who train and support independent financial planners choosing to insure their clients with my employer, Sanlam.
Early in 2016, my husband Hein took up a challenge to enter a mountain bike race, having been a lapsed cyclist (roadie) at that stage. He rode an ancient, not even basic mountain bike of our son’s, came home battered and bruised having crashed about nine times, and declared that we are taking up the sport.
I stalled, since I had another two years of my part-time studies to complete. Then one day I was urged to “just go take a look at this perfect Scott” at Cycle Lab. Over there Koos was waiting to pounce. The only question then was whether I was taking the Scott or the Trek.

155721424769.jpg
Having started off on cleats, my legs were black and blue for about six months straight. My show jumping background at least prepared me for this aspect of mountain biking. The only cycling (and endurance sports) I have ever done was cycling to school decades ago, but I joined club rides, entered races and completed all five Nissan Trailseeker half-marathons in 2017. I also started doing some 50km road races on my Mountain Bike, and also the 947.
I had bigger plans for last year, wanting to regularly cycle the 100km road races from around winter, but a knee injury and several bouts of the flu literally put a spoke in the wheel. I cycled a mere 1200km for the whole of the year. In December I however entered for the Cape Town Cycle Tour in March, and started training in Feb on our new Kickr trainer with Zwift. I had just gotten my road bike end of Jan, and ended up riding that in the Cape, in a time of 5:31. So far this year I am already on 1600km, and hope to become an almost decent cyclist soon ?.
Having a shortage of marshals for the slower groups, Theresa “asked” (read: pursued) me to consider becoming a marshal, and here I am! I alternate between, and enjoy both road and mountain bike, although I do feel that I suffer a little more comfortably on tar. In any event, I reckon I have found my Ever After Sport in cycling.
Book your calendars out for the following exciting events:

A truly Inspiring lady on our team:

Know Your Group Leader:
Name: Lee-Zaan Hinrichsen
Age: 44

155660683257.png
I grew up in the little Eastern Cape village of Despatch, where I participated in various school sports. My only exposure to cycling in those days, was riding my bike to school and back. After I matriculated in Pietermaritzburg, I studied in Stellenbosch and started working at the Virgin Active as a Club Accountant. I married in 1999 and had both my beautiful children in the Western Cape.

I moved to Gauteng in 2005 and was privileged enough to be a stay-at-home mom. A friend introduced me to spinning in 2008 and I enjoyed it so much that I started giving spinning classes at the Virgin Active a year later. Before long I was presenting 12 x 45min classes a week! It was around the same time that I got my first entry level MTB and just did the odd long ride on farm roads (nothing technical).

In 2009 a spinning class member entered me for the 94.7 cycling race and lent me an old steel-frame road bike that was standing in his garage. They pulled a few strings on my behalf and I started in the D-bunch that year. It was my first ever road race and I managed to ride it in 2h53 – something I never expected!

After my first race, I was hooked. I got tested at the HPC and manage to find a good coach. I used 2010 to learn the ropes; licencing as a Veteran Lady, but also racing with the elite woman. My best achievement in that year was winning the Mountain-to-Mountain in my age category and taking 4th place at the MTN OFM Classic and a 5th in the Dome-2-Dome.

In 2011 I managed to get my SA Road and Time Trial colours with various other podium positions in local races. In 2012 I was I privileged to race as a Veteran in the UCI World Road and Time Trial Championship where I took 3rd place in the time trail. Unfortunately, a mechanical kept me out of contention in the World’s road race.

In 2013 I licenced as an Elite rider with my highlight being a 2nd place in the SA Elite Time Trail. Sadly 2014 was my injury year and a lower back problem resulted in me taking a step back. I never stopped cycling but took it much easier. It is only in this year (2019) that I really started racing and training hard again with a full-time coach. I truly love the sport and hope to inspire and help many people to achieve their goals!!!

Our Master Bike Fitter and Group Leader who is passionate about his craft:

Know Your Group Leader – David Nel:

My cycling career started in 2003. After a few disappointments with school rugby I wanted to participate in a sport where my performance or results is only a function of my own effort. I didn’t enjoy running that much so tried my hand at cycling. I started slow with 10km here and 15km there and did my first race in 2004 at the Koranna Two Mountains in Marquard, Free State. It was my first 50km ride. We were so excited for the race, my Dad even phoned the race organiser to inform him, he can write my name on the first prize, for I’m taking it home (no pressure). So with a 500ml bottle containing only water I took the Koranna Mountains on.
The race went well and I was in the leading group at the halfway point. But then my body just seized up and said no more… I NEVER cramped so much in my life. Imagine both quads, both hamstrings and both calves locking up at the same time. All while standing over your frame… Needless to say, I finished 30th and 4th in my age, but learned a lot in that one event. After that I built my fitness up to a point where I won my age category at SA champs in the half marathon series (back then it was still the Mazda Drifter series).
While racing, I suffered with severe lower back pain, which sometimes took me out for a week after a race… By then I worked at a bike shop and got exposed to bike setups. After spending the time and money to do a proper setup on my bicycle my lower back pain went away overnight. It blew my mind… So I started doing bicycle setups in 2008 to help my fellow cyclists to enjoy their riding more and have been doing that ever since. I love what I do and find it very rewarding to get people riding more with greater enjoyment.
My Dad always joke and say he was re-incarnated as a cyclist and since 2012 we focused on improving the local XCO (only Olympic discipline of MTB) scene. So currently we host, build and time the Gauteng provincial XCO series and the Gauteng leg of the SA cup. It is awesome to see how much the XCO scene grew in the past few years and I foresee a lot more riders like Alan Hatherley to race against the best in the world.
Personally, I haven’t raced since 2012 and mainly commute on my bicycle. But my brother inspired me to up my game again. So I for the past year I slowly built my fitness up and I plan to take the racing scene by the horns, not to prove anything, but to hopefully inspire someone else in the same way.
