Team Aurecon in Stellenbosch

On Saturday 23 July 2011 Team Aurecon, the semi-professional road riding team, and several colleagues from Aurecon came out to Stellenbosch to meet the children and take a few of the guys out on a road ride around Stellenbosch.

Until now the program has focused predominately on mountain biking and BMX but we have several younger men who are interested in road riding. This interest in road riding came up in discussions with Aurecon, who are an incredible supporter of the program and were looking to establish closer ties with

As part of getting this initiative off the ground, we had our first road ride with Team Aurecon last Saturday. It was a great success and we now have Sipho, Thando and Sivuyile very interested in riding.

Team Aurecon were so good to the guys, offering tips and insight into road riding. They have said they will let the guys know when they are next training in the area so they can join along. The guys were so impressed with the teams achievements including SA Age Category winners of track and road events.

Thank you so much to Karen and Simon for organinsing such a great morning. We look forward to the next ride will take place in August 2011 and preparing the guys for the PPA Spring League.
