Who are we?

The Nelson Mandela University Cycling Club is a group of friendly bicycle enthusiasts who organize social rides in and around Port Elizabeth. We are an affiliated club of (Eastern Province Cycling) EPC and are sponsored by BestMed. Currently our membership consists mostly consist of Nelson Mandela University staff and students. The club caters for cyclists from all walks of life, with interest in all disciplines of cycling. From beginners to active, enthusiastic cyclists of intermediate and advanced levels. This is accomplished in two ways: firstly, by scheduling and conducting a selection of rides which challenge riders to plan and develop their condition level and cycling ability, and, secondly, by aggressively working to return benefits to members such as promotions and discounts on purchases of cycling equipment and other services from local bike shops. We are focused on rides and promotions that enhance your cycling enjoyment.
