Where can I find you?
The Wannabees Cycling Club (WCC) began in the Helderberg area in 2004 as a result of a small group of cycling friends who enjoyed regular group rides. Since its inception, the club has grown steadily to just over two thousand members strong in 2020. Members range across all levels, ages and abilities. Although the club when founded was primarily a road cycling club, the development of a spectacular network of mountain bike (MTB) trails has quickly attracted a strong following of MTB riders. The club's trail network has recently been expanded to offer a dedicated trail running route.
The WCC has developed and manages more than 130 kilometers of MTB trails traversing multiple farms along the base of the Helderberg mountain. The WCC also developed the Southey Vines/Geelsloot Community Bike Park trail on a Municipal Park in central Somerset West. The bike park is maintained by the club and has hosted the Spur Schools league since 2013.
The aim of the club is to support and nurture cycling in all it’s disciplines in the Helderberg Area. We support events that cover Road, MTB and Track Cycling.
The WCC is a volunteer based multi-discipline cycling club that facilitates & promotes cycling activities for its members within the local community. This includes education and development of the sport as well as the building and managing of off-road trails through agreements with local land owners. The club is affiliated to formal cycling structures within SA.
Make Your Year Last Forever
"Nothing compares to the simple pleasure of riding a bike” – John F Kennedy.
This simple pleasure is available all year round at the Wannabees Cycling Club. There is enough cycling going down to fill a year to the brim and more. Meet friends, ride your bike with friends, compete or just cruise, discover, experience and improve your health while smiling about it.
Wanna Experience it?
“Wannabees "social team" had a successful 2020 Double Century. Thanks to the club for part sponsor and team Captain Paul Houghton for all the arrangements. 10 started and 10 finished to receive the Charles Milner second medal.”
Due to the economic fallout of the global Covid-19 pandemic, the Wannabees Cycling Club has retained the same membership fee rates as last year (2020). This is another reason to smile about cycling with us.
