The red club shirt:



The committee wishes to enforce members to wear the Red SCC club jersey on weekend rides.  This will assist the back-up drivers to easily identify members and the group will be unified.  Please comply with their wishes, thank you.



Unless differently informed:

In summer the ride starts at 06h00;
it changes to 06h30 on 1st April
and to 07h00 on 1st June 
then back to 06h30 on 1st August
We revert back to 06h00 on the 1st of September to celebrate Spring Day.



Please note that the pace should be that of the majority riders:
If you want to have a hard ride join A or B.


Following vehicle: the club has a number of volunteer drivers who use their own vehicles, or the Kangoo, to provide backup.  Each vehicle will follow the group at a safe distance and offer help to anyone in the group who may need it. 

If a cyclist falls off the back of the main group, the following car should offer to take him/her back to the group.  If the cyclist refuses this offer, the back-up car has the right to pass the cyclist and continue following the main group.

The following vehicle provides safety for the majority of the group. The driver will not “pace” a cyclist back to the group – as this creates a safety hazard for the cyclist and the driver.



Safety tips:


Ride in a group.

Be vigilant at all times!

Each group would be allocated a leader - he/she will control pace and behaviour during the ride.

The designated group leader has the authority to address bad riding conduct.

Re-group at designated points during the ride - leader's responsibility.


Keep left of the road and in single file on busy or narrow sections please!

Maximum 2 abreast on broad/double lane roads

Check for traffic before changing lanes, and indicate clearly when doing so.

Stop at red traffic lights.
Obey all traffic rules.

Be courteous to other road users.

Aggression towards motorists will not be tolerated.


Check your cleats for wear (if you don’t know how – take it to your local bike shop).

Wear a helmet

Using ear phones in both ears is dangerous.

Point out any dangers ahead to those cyclists behind you, i.e. potholes, stones, glass, etc.


Be visible

Wear bright/reflective clothing.

Use a good quality front and rear light when riding in poor visibility.

Keep Identification and emergency contact & medical aid details on you.
If you have a medical condition – make sure your friends riding with you know about it.


Safe cycling!
