    MORE than a thousand cyclists will take to the streets of Windhoek Sunday on Valentine’s Day in celebration of the 25th Anniversary of the Nedbank Cycle Challenge.
    The “Swabank Cycle Tour”, as it was known at the time, attracted a record 84 registered participants in 1986, which prompted the then-chairman of the organising committee, Mr Claus Theissen, to comment: “This overwhelming support has put cycling for sport and recreation firmly into the minds of all Windhoekers”.
    In its 25th year of existence, the Nedbank Cycle Challenge has attracted participants from all over the country and has become a showpiece event for the promotion of cycling and a healthy lifestyle.
    “Cycling has always been one of Nedbank Namibia’s strongest sporting affinities”, said Gernot de Klerk, Communications Manager.
    “Our support for the sport has been amplified by our N$200, 000 headline sponsorship of the African Continental Road Cycling Championships held in Windhoek in November last year, and more recently when we joined with the internationally-acclaimed Namibian cyclist, Dan Craven, to host the Nedbank/Cymot Training Camp for promising young cyclists in January this year”.
    The defending Nedbank Cycle Challenge champions, teenagers Till Drobisch and Vera Adrian, also attended the camp to ensure that they are in the best possible shape to successfully defend their titles as men’s and women’s champions respectively.

    Have any of your friends been hit, injured, or killed on a bike?
    Please don't malign something that is sacred to many people just because it isn't important to you. Ghost bikes are terrible things that embody a lot of powerful emotions for most urban cyclists, and it's fairly tasteless of Macy's not to take them down after being informed of the significance of a rattlecanned-white bike with flowers. I can totally forgive them the initial mistake—a white bicycle is not exactly a unique idea—but to say that we are wrong in our emotional associations and act as if we should simply not be offended is insensitive and arrogant.
