Wesgro celebrates Transport Month through an E-bike adventure in the Western Cape

October is Transport Month; a movement which is led by the Department of Transport. The month aims to raise awareness of the vital role transport plays towards the economy.

Attendees ride through the Blinkberg Pass, which to many, is the most beautiful stretch of the Cederberg Circuit. Riders can expect inclines and declines with winding roads, rock formations and starry night skies

It also intends to drive conversation with civic society and business in finding ways of providing a safer, more affordable, accessible and reliable transport system for the country.

The Uitkyk pass is part of the Cederberg Circuit and offers some of the best views of the valley

While transport month is quite a serious topic, there are many fun activities which revolve around transport, including cycling. To celebrate this, Wesgro along with Cape Cycle Routes  – a Western Cape Government initiative – and Vivid Bike Tours recently hosted a group of media for three-day e-biking ride along the Cederberg Circuit.

The Cederberg Circuit winds along the Olifant’s River. Riders can expect views of the citrus orchards which dominate this area and is a key driver towards the local economy

Cederberg is one of the official routes within the Cape Cycle Routes Network. The accessibility of these routes are essential; however, even for an advanced rider, a 247KM bike ride may not be a walk in the park. To encourage the general public to explore these routes, local tour operators have made an e-bike option available to anyone looking to ride this route regardless of their fitness level.

Please see images of the event attached. For your ease of reference I have included caption below.
