Newsletter #4-16


Ek het gedink dit sal goed wees om vir n slag die nuusbrief in Afrikaans te begin. Winter is om die draai en dit gaan al hoe moeiliker begin raak om te oefen, maar dit sal alles die moeite werd wees wanneer julle teen die M.A.C uitklim in Augustus!

The All New Trans Tour.

With the launch of the second event in 2015, we had these guys, some would call them crazy, some would call them stupid and some would call them very brave, that took up the challenge of riding the first Trans Baviaans from Willowmore to Jeffreys Bay, then ride back to Willowmore through the Baviaanskloof during the following week and then soldier onto the start of the second Trans Baviaans 24hr MTB Marathon! Now that brings Trans Spirit to a whole new level!
We will now be offering a Trans Tour in the week between the two events from 15th August to 19th August 2016 for those crazy enough to take up the challenge (as the guys from last year), for those who want to take their better half through the kloof on a more relaxed journey, for those wanting to reminisce about the race (see some views in daylight) or for those who want to mentally prepare for what is about to come! There is only 10 spots available for this tour so book your spot. Click here for more info.

If you are a rookie (first timer) this evening will be very informative and if you are a 5 year shield holder or on your way to one please come and share your experiences with everybody and social with us!

The evening will be free of charge but we would like you to RSVP with Carmen at  a week before every date in order for us to confirm numbers. We will provide snacks, drinks and hopefully some good laughs.

Enjoy your preparations and we hope to see you at one of the Trans Talks.
