18km Fun Ride
The route will form part of stage two of the Team Xtra Lite stage race, using the first 5 km of tar road, and the final 12km of the stage, incorporating many sections of single and jeep tracks used by visiting tourists on a regular basis.
The Fun Ride will start 10 minutes after the Team Extra Lite Race, and riders will be back at the finish to watch the Stage Race winners cross the line.
There will be optional “chicken run” sections to avoid any technical sections which they may want to avoid.
The Fun Ride will be open to all riders 11 years and older, as at 31 December 2018.
Children between 11 and 13 years, not yet proficient with riding single tracks and over bridges, must be accompanied by an adult.
Registration for the Fun Ride will take place on Thursday and Friday from 14h00, and Saturday morning from 05h30 at the Floreat Riverside Lodge Conference Centre.
All riders (or parents of children under 18 years) must sign an indemnity, conforming to the rules, and wear a recognised hard shell helmet.
It is not a race and only the first 5 riders will be timed. The rest will be sequenced.
Entries will cost R70 per rider. No temporary racing licence fee is required. All proceeds from this event will go directly to a local charity for orphans, or homeless children.
