A  MTB strictly for Woman only.

That moment you realise you’re enveloped by a piece of ancient indigenous forest – under the canopy of trees with names like mountain waxberry, white stinkwood, kamassi and the beautifully flowering Cape chestnut – is something special. The Garden Route’s Indigenous Forest: no matter what your religious conviction, this place is close to spiritual.

Stay quiet long enough and the trademark kok-kok kok-kok of a Knysna turaco (used to be Loeries) is bound to override the other ambient chirp-chirps… and give you a start. If that doesn’t, a critter ruffling in the underbrush close by is bound to. Baboon? Maybe a shy blue duiker, or a bushbuck? Caracal… leopard?

CarTrip

ct_trailrunning1

We have teamed up with CarTrip, a company that offers an internet-based platform that allows drivers and passengers to easily arrange lifts together.  We encourage you to visit their website www.cartrip.co.za and find out more about this exciting new service.  It provides a much-needed facility for our members to arrange lifts or offer lifts to various running events or even to and from our club.

Almost 70% of people that enter events drive to the venue on their own so it makes sense that our participants share their vehicles with other participants coming to the event.

The benefits of sharing rides to the event include:

  • You are able to meet fellow participants who share your passion for running.
  • If you are a driver you can recoup some or all of your petrol costs by offering a lift.
  • If you need a lift it will cost a fraction of the cost of travelling there with your own car.
  • Ladies can get lifts with lady drivers only if they prefer.
  • More parking and less congestion at the event as there will be fewer cars.
  • With fewer cars on the road, it helps our environment by reducing CO2 emissions.

So if you’re travelling alone to any of the running events or if you’re looking for a lift to an event then go to www.cartrip.co.za.  You will see a dropdown tab with all the events listed, just select your event and enter your ride details.  You can also email them with details of an event if it is not listed.  We do suggest that you read through their FAQ’s should you have any questions on how it works and we look forward to our members embracing this opportunity presented by CarTrip.
