947 Ride Joburg is shutting down the streets on 21 November!
947 Ride Joburg, hosted by The City of Johannesburg, is just three days away! We can hardly believe that the time has come for us to once again own the streets of Joburg.
To all riders, there are a few things you need to remember to help your day run smoothly:
1. Check your start time and give yourself enough time to get to the venue. We recommend arriving one hour before your start time.
Make sure you have your mask, helmet and timing board on hand when you arrive. No mask, no helmet, no ride!
There will be mechanical and medical support teams on the route. If you or a fellow cyclist require urgent medical attention, call 082 911 and give your location.
Read through the Rider Information Brochure if you have any other questions:
