Online entries for the 2014 Cape Argus Pick n Pay Tricycle and Junior Tours are currently open. The event will take place on Saturday, March 8 at the Youngsfield Military Base in Wynberg and this year the organisers have added in an exciting Junior Training Wheels programme for the youngsters to help build their confidence and make them a little more road savvy on their bicycles.
The Junior Training Wheels programme mirrors the Training Wheels programme that was launched last October to prepare and coach adult novices to enter and complete their first Cape Argus Pick n Pay Cycle Tour in 2014.
The Junior Training Wheels programme is open to youngsters up until the age of 12 who own and can pedal a two-wheeled bicycle without assistance. Daily 90 minute sessions will take place from 4.30pm from Wednesday to Friday, March 5 to 7, at Canal Walk Shopping Centre and entry fees are R150 per child. Parents are encouraged to enter their tots online early as entries are limited to 30 riders per session. Wearing of helmets at each of the sessions is compulsory to ensure the safety of all riders.
Each participant who successfully completes the route on March 8 will receive a goodie bag, medal and certificate. There will also be lots of other activities on offer – face painting, jumping castles and prize giveaways – so the little ones will be well entertained for hours.
Registration will take place between February 28 and March 7 at the Main Stage area of the Canal Walk Shopping Centre. No entries will be processed on race day.
