Heard about this through my twitter feed (thanks @BarryMcCallum). This is a great initiative and the Daily Crank will be there to support on the day.
This is not a race, it is a group ride to show that mountain bikers support the initiatives of the Table Mountain Forum, San Parks, SAPS etc and everyone else committed to getting rid of the criminal element from the mountain.
The ride will take place on the 28th of August (it is a Sunday), 9:15am. Meet & Greet will be at the parking lots, top of Kloof Nek Road, left hand side where you turn up to the Cable Station.
“We want to try and outnumber the walkers,so that we can be recognised as a strong and unified mountain user group. San Parks still gives preference to walkers, but Table Mountain has been designated a cycling area, therefore we need to come out in numbers on the 28th of August and show that we don’t just want to ride there, but are also prepared to get involved in making the mountain safe.”
The route will take us up Tafelberg Road to the first hairpin turn, where we veer left on to the Jeep Track. From there we ride across the front of the mountain, through Deer Park and up to the Blockhouse. Cycle back to the starting point along Tafelberg Road. This event carries no Entry Fee, there are no marshals and riders take part at their own risk.
