RUSTENBURG CYCLISTS GEARING UP!
Rustenburg – The annual Dis-Chem Ride for Sight cycling race took place on the East Rand this past weekend, Saturday, 18 February 2017.
This was the last chance many riders used to prepare themselves for the upcoming Cape Town Cycle Race “Argus” taking place in March.
The Rustenburg Cycling Club was again well represented with many of its top cyclists shoning themselves in this tough ultra-marathon race of 116 km, with the start and finish at the Boksburg City Stadium. The race also provided a shorter distance of 62 km for the novices and juniors to race.
