Who we are

We are South Africa's first official LGBTIQ+ cycling club and offer cyclists a safe and open space to freely express themselves and their passion for cycling. Whether you're a beginner looking for a fun way to spend a Saturday morning or a serious pro, you'll feel at home.

We are a registered non-profit organization (219-764 NPO) and are proudly affiliated with Cycling South Africa and Central Gauteng Cycling. We are also in the process of registering as a public benefit organization (PBO) with SARS.

Free Memberships

Anyone is welcome to join our weekly club rides. It's completely free and you don't even need to be a registered member. Just pitch up and ride. We want to promote an open and inclusive club that is accessible to everyone.


We also have paid annual memberships. Depending on which option you select, you get a club jersey, regular updates about upcoming activities and access to special events which are only open to paid members. Your membership fees fund our marketing campaigns and pay our bills. By becoming a paid member, you enhance our ability to provide a quality LGBTIQ+ cycling experience.


Our road rides are split into several groups depending on fitness and ability. These range from 18 to 30+ km/h. We start at various places in and around Joburg every other Saturday.


We have MTB rides every other Saturday in and around Joburg, including Northern Farm, Big Red Barn and Central Park. The MTB ride groups range from 14 to 20+ km/h and are suitable for beginners to intermediate riders.

Beginner Rides

Most of our rides include beginner groups for those who mainly want to have fun and meet new people while riding a bike. If you have never been on a bike and are looking for somewhere to start, this club is for you.
