    Race was fine until we did the loop for the 103km route. No shoulder on the road, traffic riding close to verge just about knocking you off the bike, massive coal carriers in both directions leaving no room for the cyclist. One fatality too many, it would have been avoided if the had been better route planning and at least some signage to warn motorists of the race. All in all not a nice experience, I think I will stick to mountain biking. Far less traumatic.

    I too was very disappointed when I realised the roads were not closed for cars. I travelled from Rustenburg to do a save ride without coal carriers! I stopped after I went passed the accident as I was already upset about the road and driving off road at that point (luckily with my MTB)

    I like the race, but have to agree with my fellow riders, road closures are very important.
    We as riders support well organized events so please do your best with closing the roads for us.
    Mac Steel, Carnival City, Racetec, big names, lest see this year if the names match the organizing skills.

    Great novice race. The 65km route was a wonderful way to start the cycling year off. Plenty marshals easy access to venue and start with ample parking, always felt safe. Will definitely be cycling this event again.
