Club

“My goal for the ASG bike club is to grow it to be the biggest and best cycling club in the country. Currently our club is based in Paarl, although the main aim long term is to roll it out nationwide. Official club rides are on Saturdays but through our interactive Whatsapp group we create a strictly club related, yet informal platform for riders to invite fellow cyclists for rides on non-official days.

The club is run by its members and creates an informal family vibe where everyone’s input is valuable.”

Passion for ladies cycling

“I want cycling to empower women in every aspect of their lives and not just in sport. Within the ASG club we have a growing ladies ride which takes place on Tuesday and Friday mornings at 8am from the ASG Store in Paarl and is open to non-club members.

This ride is suitable for everyone from beginner to pro and is an easy 20km ride for beginners. This is where it starts; a happy,n healthy environment for ladies of all ages and backgrounds to get together, enjoy the outdoors and each other’s company.”
