The first weekend of June was a bleak one for cycling, with four cyclists being knocked down in Cape Town alone, in two separate incidents. PPA says: Enough is enough! In order to raise awareness around the safety of cyclists, PPA is organising the RIDE FOR YOUR LIFE SOUTH AFRICA TOUR from 8 to 28 September – and you are invited to participate. Read more…
Pedal Power Association is calling for improvements to be made to the K53 Manual and Driving Licence Test to make bicycle awareness a core part of driver training and testing, with emphasis on how much space to give cyclists, how to safely interact with cyclists at intersections, and how to safely overtake cyclists.
Entries for the PPA “Tread Lightly” Women’s MTB on Saturday 18 May 2012 at Backsberg Estate Cellars have closed. With just under 800 ladies entered, this is the biggest all-female event in the country and set to be an amazing event! Specific event information and details has been emailed to all entrants.
Contrary to the report in Die Burger of 10 May, the Naked Bike ride is in no way associated with PPA or part of the annual Cape Argus Pick n Pay Cycle Tour.
Don’t miss out on this fabulous all-female MTB funride, now with a new longer route. Most of the riding takes place on farm roads around and through vineyards, orchards and some forested sections. Click here to see full event information or ENTER NOW!
Applications for project funding for 2013-2013 closed on 4 April 2013. New applications will be accepted again in January 2014.
