Africa Cycle Fair Illustrated

Ian-Cycle-Cap-WebThis weekend I donned my #CountryCyclist hat (literally) and visited the Africa Cycle Fair, out at the Cradle of Humankind. It was well worth the drive, with most of the top local cycling brands on display, some cool food and plenty of adventurous folk to chat to. 

Here’s a gallery of snaps from the day with some useful info and links:

The Africa Cycle Fair took place over 24-26 October 2014 at the Cradle of Humankind, one of the most popular cycling spots in the country.

Simple SAM of Pretoria had one of the most intriguing stands. Their attractive single-speed machines are popular with the alternative riders. http://simplesam.co.za/

MTN Qhubeka had its Buffalo on display, too. This is the bike they are distributing far and wide to help make people mobile and get to school and work more efficiently than ever before. http://www.teammtnqhubeka.com/

A2B electric bikes were available to try. I had a go and was most impressed. Charged on mains and powered by a battery and/or your own pedaling, this is a peep into the future of commuting (hopefully). http://www.wearea2b.com/af_za
