The Wannabees Cycling Club (WCC) in the Helderberg area was started in 2004 by a small group of cycling friends who enjoyed regular group rides. The club has since grown to over a thousand members across all levels, ages and abilities. Although the club, when founded, was primarily a road cycling club, the development of MTB trails rapidly added a big group of enthusiastic Mountain Bikers.
The club has developed and manages more than 150km’s of MTB trails across more than 20 farms, as well as a community Bike park trail in a Municipal Park in Somerset West. The Southey Vines/Geelsloot Bike Park has hosted the Spur Schools league since 2013. The aim of the club is to support and nurture cycling in all its disciplines in the Helderberg Area. We support events that cover Road, MTB and Track Cycling
The WCC is a volunteer based multi-discipline cycling club that facilitates & promotes cycling activities for its members within the local community. This includes education and development of the sport as well as the building and managing of off-road trails through agreements with local land owners. The club is affiliated to formal cycling structures within SA.
