2018: A YEAR IN REVIEW | SOCIAL RESPONSIVENESS
Earlier this year they encouraged
cyclists and other sportspeople to
donate their unwanted medals for
distribution to children in hospital,
collecting 400 medals.
For Women’s Month, UCT
Cycling hosted a series of events
and talks to celebrate women in
sport. In lieu of entrance fees, they
collected donations of feminine
hygiene products, which were later
distributed by SHAWCO Health.
The club also organised a Breast
Cancer Awareness Club Ride on
21 October.
With only four women racing
previously for UCT Cycling, the arrival
of three strong female cyclists in 2018
meant a women’s team could finally
become a reality. They soon made
their presence felt on the cycling
scene with Hayley Preen winning the
women’s division at the University
Sport South Africa (USSA) Cycling
Championships.
The women also competed in
Western Province league races where
Preen and teammate Courtney Webb
both notched up multiple wins.
