2015 Momentum 947 Cycle Challenge

Every year on the 3rd Sunday of November, Joburg’s biggest cycle event is held on the streets of Joburg, the Momentum 947 Cycle Challenge. Germiston Wheeler members usually support this event in many way, some choosing to race it, others to ride it and a few to do it twice (yes, a double lap).

This year we decided to raise funds (officially) for the SPCA, and joined the charity group TEAM NSPCA. Some of the guys also had the opportunity to ride their own race and then join the group for a second lap.

After meeting up with Team NSPCA at the 50Km mark, we rode together to the finish, including crossing the line together.

Well done to everyone that took part – on the bike, at hospitality or simply as a supporter. Treasured moments for treasured friends.

Congratulations to the guys that set a new PB for this route. It means you have some work to do to improve for 2016.
