AFTER the excitement of the Toti 69er, the Toti Roadies have been taking it relatively­ easy as there are no upcoming races yet. They have just been doing social cruises up and down the coast. This is good as there have been a few new Roadies joining in and they are learning the ins and outs of riding on the road.

The Toti Mambas enjoyed a lovely club ride at Virginia two Sundays ago where a few of the brave Roadies joined up with them to explore the more “dirty” side of cycling. Every Roadies got pretty dirty by trying to view Peteand#039;s land up close. A boerie braai was enjoyed thereafter. Thanks to the road captain for manning that one.

The long-awaited rain put a damper on most riding last weekend, although there are always the diehards who decide the wet weather is for them.

On 2 August, a huge field of orange participated in the Illovo Eston. This was earmarked for a club race to try and get as many mountain bikers as possible from our club together in one venue. I think that Toti was extremely well represented at this event with a few in every distance offered. Cindy Theunissen came in first lady in her age group putting a Mamba up on the podium once again.

Please will all mountain bikers remember there is the Scottburgh winter solstice race this Sunday. It is a good route and it would be nice to support a another local race. - Supplied
