About Us

Road races are run during the summer season and is based on a handicap system. The cyclist handicap is determined from previous races and the cyclists abilities. In this way each cyclist has an even opportunity to win a race. Points are awarded per race to all cyclists taking part depending on the order of finish. At the end of the season the cyclist best ten race points are taken to calculate the group and category winners. The club has 22 organised road races per season starting in September of each year and ending in April the following year. Races vary in distances and degree of difficulty. The majority of races are in the 45 kilometer to 60 kilometer category with one or two going over into the 80 kilometer distance. Two Age Group Championship races over 69 kilometers and 78 kilometers are held plus a club Time Trial Championship and club Hill Climb Championship to determine the Age Group Champions within the club.  Trophies and medals are awarded to cyclists at the club Prize Giving for various category winners and runners up.

Course Names

In the 1970s a circuit at Coega was used, before that area became populated, and it was called the BINNEMAN CIRCUIT in memory of the late Frans and Koos Binneman, two brothers who started North Road Cycling Club in 1948 when they moved to Port Elizabeth from Bellville. The club went defunct in the early 90's when the cycling population in Port Elizabeth started declining.

When Coega was no longer safe enough for racing, cycling moved closer to Port Elizabeth and specifically to the Greenbushes and Seaview area. It was decided by the Eastern Province Cycling Association (EPCA) to name the circuit starting at Rathmead going over Chelsea to Theescombe and then Cows Corner down to Seaview and back to Rathmead, after the BINNEMAN brothers. Rathnead is currently the farm school in Seaview Road.

Ray PRESSLY was associated with PE Cycling and Athletic Club from the 1960s and he was also Chairman of the Eastern Province Cycling Association for a time. The 22km circuit, which started at Fairview and now Altona School, was named after him in recognition of his services to cycling. The circuit then started west of the N2 overhead bridge and went up the Three Sisters, left into Altona and back to the start.

The circuit called PIKE CIRCUIT is in fact the POULTER CIRCUIT, named after Cyril Poulter, another stalwart of cycling. The circuit was named after him when he passed away, replacing the name of "Pike Circuit".

The name "Pike" was given to the circuit by a cyclist, Geoff Smith, a British immigrant who spent a few years in Port Elizabeth, first with Spartan Wheelers and then with Walmer Cycling Club. He maintained that the circuit made "pike" of the cyclists, after the fish that fed on or chased each other - the cyclists were able to stay in the slipstream of those in front, because the circuit is relatively flat and it is difficult to shake off someone on your back wheel.
