Glengarry Classic

Firstly, let me congratulate Bafana Bafana for their resounding victory over New Zealand yesterday. Well done boys! That’s the kind of soccer we wanna see from you all the time!

On Sunday, 28th June, Glengarry Park will host their 28th Glengarry Classic MTB race. The event features 3 races: The Classic (57km), Intermediate (35km) and Fun Ride (15km).

Recognised by Ride magazine for their scenic, hassle-free trails, this should prove to be more of a leisurely ride than a furious competition.

I remember one weekend when Fred and I went away to the Drakensberg, and decided to give Glengarry’s red, intermediate trail a bash. It proved to be so beautiful and serene that we weren’t even challenging each other like usual – instead we started walking, admiring the green, and making plans to buy a house in KZN!

It’s really a fun ride for the whole family and definitely recommended by me!

Elections: Go Vote!

It’s election time again and South Africans are going to the polls to vote tomorrow! You may think that elections and government have nothing to do with cycling, but there you are wrong.
pinky_and_the_brainDon’t be kept in the dark. Think about it…the situation of the country will directly impact on the amount of foreign sponsorship received and the injection of money into the local MTB scene. We don’t need greedy morons in government ploughing all the money into their back pocket and taking it away from the people.

In all seriousness, it is important to have the right leadership in place to help this beautiful country move forward and grow. Remember, use your voice, think of the future, be wise casting your vote, and keep your vote a secret.
Oh and if you want to get to the front of the queue quicker – rent a wheelchair. I’m not faking my injury though. It’s legit, I swear!
