During 2008 Braam le Roux and Carol Mostert expressed their desire to establish a cycling club. They initiated social rides and led a small group of cyclists on mostly tarred roads, enjoying the natural beauty of the Overstrand area between Rooi Els and Kleinmond. During 2018 the club saw a resurgence with a group of enthusiastic members who worked hard to establish off-road routes on private land. The club has since grown rapidly. Though sadly Braam passed away in 2013, his dream lives on and in 2021 the club has more than 100 members from Kleinmond, surrounding towns and as far afield as Cape Town and Johannesburg. Many visitors enjoy monthly memberships or daily permits and as the club continues to invest in the area, we foresee that the club will continue to grow.
What we do
Private land owners have kindly granted permission for the Club members to cycle on their pristine properties and enjoy the natural beauty. Our gratitude goes out to all the owners and we kindly ask that members adhere to the rules in this regard, as it is indeed a privilege granted to the Club. To ensure an enjoyable ride, the Club is consistently performing maintenance on the MTB routes.
Regular social rides are organised, for MTB rides as well as the road cyclists. The longer rides usually include a coffee stop and the perfect opportunity to meet other cyclists.
The Club is currently communicating with the local municipality for permission to construct a pump track to encourage younger cyclists to take up the sport. Donated bicycles will also make it possible to promote cycling in local schools and the broader community.
