Cycle Asylum 10km Fun Ride 

Who wants to enjoy a ten km cycle around the beautiful town of Port Alfred? Then the Cycle Asylum 10km Fun Ride is for you. 

Sponsored by Royal St Andrews Hotel and Edge Finance, along with the Port Alfred Round Table, this ride is bound to be loads of fun. 

The cycle starts at the Royal St Andrews Hotel at 10am on Saturday, 30 March, and finishes back at the Hotel. 

Port Alfred has some tough competitors, and ex-pro cyclist Brandon Smith might make an appearance. Then things will get real. 

The only rules are the age restriction – over 16s only, and safety headgear is a requirement, with no exceptions. There will be some road closures for about two hours during the event. The cycle has full permissions and will be a smooth and well-run event. 

Finally, engaging in cycling presents a multifaceted source of enjoyment. Firstly, it provides a dynamic avenue for exploration, allowing riders to discover new locales, relish the outdoors, and maintain physical activity.

Moreover, the sense of accomplishment derived from conquering challenging routes elevates the overall appeal of road cycling. As enthusiasts gather, a unique social dynamic emerges, contributing significantly to the widespread appeal of road cycling.

And then, of course, there’s the thrill of the race, as we have here at the Cycle Asylum event. It’s a fun ride, but the competitive aspect adds another layer of excitement to the world of cycling. The competitive element injects adrenaline, adding to the excitement of friendly competition. It’s a well-rounded activity.

Then, you have the option of competing in your own triathlon. Add the parkrun to the swim and cycle races, and you have all three. There is enough time between races to make your way to the next start, so finishing your first triathlon at the first Port Alfred Easter Festival could be quite an achievement.

To enter the Cycle Fun Ride will be R100pp, and there will be pre-entries and cash entries on the day. 

The after-race function will likely drift over to the Highlander Pub for some loosening up.
