Four Passes:  Tomorrow (Saturday) morning at 06:00 we will be doing the Four Passes Ride as training for the Double Century.  All members are welcome, even if you are not doing DC.  It is a tough and long ride, starting from the Simonsrus Shopping centre on the Corner of Cluver Ave & Helshoogte Road.  We will head to Somerset West on the R44, then the back-roads half-way up Sir Lowreys.  Then a short section on the N2 before we turn off to Grabouw.  Over Grabouw Pass, then Franschoek Pass before heading back via Hellshoogte Pass.
Canal Swim:  Please note: From now on, there will be NO CANAL SWIM on Saturday afternoons.  The swim will be on Friday mornings at 06:00.
Tuesday Track:  From now on, through summer, we will offer TWO track sessions on a Tuesday.  One in the morning at 06:00 and the usual session in the evenings at 18:00.  Members are welcome to join either or both sessions.


Good luck to Jean De Villiers and Adrian Morris, who will be taking part in the Ironman World Championships in Kona, Hawaii tomorrow (Saturday)!  Paul Kaye, the local voice of Ironman, will be announcing at the prestigious Kona event this year.
Celebrating its 9th year, the Slanghoek MTB Classic is taking place on Saturday through the beautiful Slanghoek Valley, on similar routes to the MTB Triathlon taking place on later this month.  Riders stand a chance to win a KTM Area 29er, valued at R26 000.
On Sunday is the Gun Run and we are hoping to see loads of ATC’ers along the way.  Good luck to all the members doing their first half marathon or going for a PB.  The ATC gazebo will be set up in the club area.
