Taking place on the last Friday morning of every month, cyclists converge on the southern suburbs before taking a leisurely roll towards Green Point. For some, the motivation to participate is socio-political: a means of raising awareness of the congestion and pollution caused by motor vehicles. Others are less idealistic: it’s simply an excuse to meet like-minded cyclists and get the weekend off to a good start.
Riders congregate at the Baxter Theatre at 06h45 before rolling through to the CTICC at 07h15. The ride finishes at Vida e Cafeé opposite the World Cup Stadium after which a small contingent make their way back to the southern suburbs.
