How far can you ride in 12 hours? Join us on Sunday 30 April at the Killarney Race Track in Milnerton and come and test your endurance legs. You can participate as an individual (solo) rider, in a pair of 2 riders, or in a team of 4 riders.

Pairs and teams will ride in relays, with one rider being on the track at a time. While a minimum number of laps must be completed to get a bronze medal, there is no set number of laps that each team member must complete and pairs/teams can decide for themselves when to change over and/or when to take a rest. Similarly, as a solo rider you can decide for yourself when you want to ride and how many laps you want to do before taking a break.

While the event officially starts at 08h00, you are welcome to start your onslaught anytime between 08h00 and 11h00. The last lap must be completed just after 20h00.

Entries close at 09h00 on Friday 28 April. Since the names of riders participating in pairs and teams need to be loaded onto the database, late entries on the day of the event can be taken only for solo (individual) riders.

Please bring along your PPA funride number, Racetec timing chip (no chip, no time) and helmet.

Also bring along some food and snacks (no open fires will be allowed). The Killarney restaurant will be open from 08h00-20h00, serving light meals and coffee. Gazebo’s /club gazebo’s welcome. Water and Powerade will be offered at the change-over point.

Important: Please bring your bicycle lights along to use between 18h00-20h00 as there will be areas along the track where it will be very dark (there are no lights around the track, other than around the pits/start area). We recommend some spare batteries and even a head lamp too, as well as all the bicycle spares that you think you may need during the day, including enough inner tubes. As conditions will change during the day, do bring something warm to wear once the sun goes down, including arm warmers and a jacket, as well as something warm to wear after the event.
