Cape Town Stuff!
MyCiTi commuters and road users should please take note of the MyCiTi route deviations and road closures to accommodate the annual Cape Town Cycle Tour that is taking place on Sunday 6 March 2016.
‘The City of Cape Town is proud to be hosting the world’s largest timed cycle race for the 39th year. On Sunday cyclists will face a challenging route of approximately 109 km around the Cape Peninsula and they will be supported by our residents along the way. As is the case with cities around the world, Cape Town is also becoming more populated and congested due to urbanisation. With the Cycle Tour taking place on our doorstep, I would like to make use of the opportunity to emphasise that cycling should be embraced not only for recreational purposes, but also as a legitimate form of transport,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member: Transport for Cape Town, Councillor Brett Herron.

The volunteer unit received just over R400 000 of the funds raised and used this donation to acquire the fire skid units. Continue reading

CAPE TOWN, SA: Abalimi Bezekhaya has partnered with Green Monday South Africa, a new initiative launched by Humane Society International (HSI) that aims to improve animal welfare, human health and environmental sustainability.

Harvest of Hope already provides this popular service to a variety of other suburbs in Cape Town.
