Khaltsha All-Girls Cycling Club
Khaltsha Cycles is collaborating with pro cyclist and sports champion, Ashleigh Moolman-Pasio, in order empower teen girls in the Khayelitsha-area through the bicycle.
Khaltsha Cycles trains these female cyclists while also providing them with a place to study and network.
The team has completed one Cape Town Cycle tour circling the entire peninsula and looks forward to growing in the future.
According to Moolman-Pasio herself, "We are using bicycles to firstly, give the riders a new sense of belonging, and to help them grow in their confidence."
Khaltsha Social Cycling Club
Khaltsha Social Cycling Club is free and is open-to-all cyclists, both new and old. The aim is to build a cycling community by bringing together fellow cyclists from all walks of life and enable them to connect, network, and have fun while on a bike.
The social club hosts a series of rides which include training rides led by an experienced ride captain, coffee rides, sip and rides, and critical mass rides. Rides take place twice a month. Register below to be updated.
Bike4All students is an iniative by TSIBA Business School together with Khaltsha Cycles to provide students with bicycles to commute to campus. The project has provided up to 7 bicycles to students who need alternative transport.
The project is donor-driven. A donor contributes R1500 towards the bicycles, while TSIBA covers the rest with an agreement that the student will pay half of the fund in monthly installments. The commitment from students ensure that they will care for their new wheels.
Bike2Work Pilot Project
The #Bike2Work campaign encourages people to cycle to
work. A bike bus is a group of cyclists who ride together using
a set route. Participants can join the bike bus along the
route and exit the bus at their ‘bus stop’, or their place of
work. Khaltsha Cycles, together with 71 Point 4, are running a Bike2Work Pilot, starting with 20 commuters who are testing the Khayelitsha to Stellenbosch route .
Khaltsha Cycles, together with Avalanche Bicycles, Pedal Power Association and Bicycling Empowerment Network (Bike4All) are coming together to raise funds to provide 40 bicycles to essential workers doing extraordinary work.
Essential workers need safe, reliable and convenient transportation to get to our communities throughout the COVID-19 crisis.
