Event Report: Westville M13 Classic Road Race – A Road Race for All

On Sunday 3rd June 2018, the Westville Cycling Club, in conjunction with the KZN Cycling Development initiative, staged the Westville M13 Classic road race in Durban. This inaugural mass participation road race was devised as a development event to promote the sport in general and to encourage people who may ride a bike for leisure or exercise etc and that would not normally compete in an event, to take part in an organised activity that allows them to ride on a route with full road closure and with no racing pressure if desired.

The event was designed as a circuit race on a 17km route and we also managed to secure full road closure which allowed for better protection for the less experienced riders that competed. Entrants had the choice to do as many or as few laps as they chose on the day with a 17km, 51km and a maximum of 85km race distance and there were also formalised racing categories for those more competitive riders.
There was some fierce racing that took place at the pointy end of the groups, but the primary focus of the day was on allowing people to ride a distance of their choosing and to ride the route at their own pace so as to inculcate a love of the sport and competing in organised races going forward.
More than 350 riders arrived on the day to compete primarily made up of youth and family riders and a fantastic day’s riding took place.
