More and more cyclists, cyclist clubs and motor cyclists are using the cradle and general Muldersdrift area for riding.
After a few incidents in the area, CGC (Central Gauteng Cycling) has requested a meeting with residents and other parties to address issues. The meeting will take place at Teak Place on Wednesday , 18 November at 7pm.

Something to think about: If you hit a cyclist, you are in big trouble irrespective of whose fault it was, and the results can be long term. Apart from the legal issues, the cyclist community will make your life a nightmare – ask a local resident who had death threats, his web site hacked, his personal details published on the internet, malicious virus emails sent, and general bad mouthing. This has affected his business.
I can list a number of issues, but best you bring them up at the meeting.
If you cannot make the meeting, maybe send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org of your general point of view and if I can register you as a concerned resident.
The following parties have been invited:

- Cradle Business
