Tell us your cycling story?
Mostly a roadie for the last 18 years, with 17 Argus’s, 14 94.7’s and numerous other. Also done 9 Ultra tours, >1,000km to Cape Town, Richards Bbay, Maputo and Lüderitz as destinations. Recently, 3 years ago also started to enjoy MTB with Karoo-to-Coast, Wines-to-Whales, Transbaviaans, York Enduro and numerous other races. I cycle because I enjoy the outdoors, the scenery and the friends I cycle with, with the advantage of becoming fit. It also helps to “clean-the-head”.
