30 September 2019 – School holidays are meant to be fun, so we headed off to the Weltevreden Community Center in Mitchell’s Plain for some cycling fun! Together with Coot B Community Watch and our BEC, Vyvan Bean from Mr B’s Bikes, we conducted a safe cycling school holiday program with at least 100 children from the community. Such well behaved children who enjoyed every minute of the training and cycling. Special thanks to Dragon Sports for the donation of Avalanche cycling gloves and to Cape Town Cycle Tour for the water bottles. The children were beyond excited to receive your donations. Well done to Coot B Community Watch for helping keep the community safe. Thanks to everyone for a great event.
