Coffee Ride and Helderberg Trails Intro

Hey Guys
Come and join us on Saturday 22 July for coffee and croissants at The Hanger Bike Co.
Road ride will start at Lord Charles at 7h30, ending at The Hanger Bike Co around 10h30.
The MTB guys have 2 options. You can do your own ride on the Wannabees trails, also aiming to finish at The Hanger Bike Co around 10h30, OR you can meet in the car park at The Hanger Bike Co at 8h00 for an 8h15 start for a free introductory ride at Helderberg Farm. This offer is open for Wannabees members only. For those of you who haven’t experienced the joys of riding the Helderberg Trails, Andrew Neethling is offering to host any Wannabees members for an introductory tour of some of the most awesome downhill trails in the area. Groups will be divided up and a guide will be allocated to each group for a fun filled morning. These groups will also arrive back around 10h30. MTB riders not wanting to join the tour are still invited to join everyone at The Hanger Bike Co for coffee and croissants around 10h30.

The Hanger Bike Co is situated at the intersection of the R44 and Klein Helderberg Road.

RSVP is essential for this event. Please send your response before 12h00 noon on Thursday for inclusion to this event.

Knysna Relief Effort

A call to action for all our members.

Photo: The Citizen –

The club has decided with the help of Henning Swanepoel to send a load of bottled water to Knysna. Henning will make one of his trucks available for the transport. The water will be sent to one of the local Knysna church centres that will do distribution. We would like to request all our members to assist in this. We need bottled water. 1 liter bottles wrapped in 6 packs and also 5 liter bottles.

You can drop this off at the Helderberg NG church centre on Monday from 8 am to 7 pm and Tuesday from 8 am to 11 am. Please send this out to as many of you contacts so that we can make a difference.
