Cape Western MMA doing duty as repair marshals during the Cape Town Cycle Tour (CTCT), It’s all for charity so time and fuel given willingly.
Our duties – individual bikes leave at half our intervals and ride with cyclists offering assistance to supply and fit tubes, pump up tires, fix chains, tools and moral support. Most important, if a rider goes down in the road and is injured, park bike between approaching riders to act as a shield against the herd.
Knights of St Christopher charity ride
MMA have assisted Knights of St Christopher in marshalling their charity ride to Andrew Murray Children’s home since starting their drive some 6 years ago, helping this well deserving children’s shelter in Wellington.
Ride started at Bellville Velodrome 08hr30 where a marshal and rider briefing kicked off proceedings with about 250 bikes heading down the N1 toward Wellington, shepherded by the disciplined MMA marshals, looking snazzy in their hi-viz vests.
Arriving safely at the AMCH, bikes parked, we started queuing for a HUGE breakfast, prepared and served by KoSC, home staff and the kids and a grand job they did, other than a long ride there is nothing that make a biker happy than a good breakfast, with beans!
The feast was followed by KoSC thanking all support and sponsors, then much anticipated prize giving where the MMA cleaned up, most notable the prize for oldest biker, well done Julian.
A quick whip round between the MMA guys and girls yielded R1100 that was donated to the home by Frank our vice chairman, a great day was had by all.
After proceedings the MMA drifted off to support the Wellington, Komeshu shell hole’s bowls day (Just around the corner), where bar stocks were severely depleted.
