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.

To get more info of what has been happening and attitudes of cyclist in general, check out http://www.thehubsa.co.za/forum_posts.asp?TID=66796 (over 15,000 views).

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 garth@paperless.co.za of your general point of view and if I can register you as a concerned resident.

The following parties have been invited:

  • Central Gauteng CyclingCradle Residents
  • Cradle Business
  • Triathlon. Biathlon Association
  • Mogale City Metro ? Provincial Department of Transport
  • CGC Clubs
  • Cradle News
  • Community Police Forum
  • ThinkBike
