Pedal Power Association
The Pedal Power Association is the largest cycling organization in South Africa, with more than 16,000 members spread all over the country (although the largest component is in the Western Cape, where the Association has its headquarters). The PPA organises more than 50 cycle events per year, including mass participation fun-rides, MTB events, recreational tours as well as events for the more competitive cyclist. The PPA receives 50% of the proceeds generated by the events organised by the Cape Town Cycle Tour Trust (including the Cape Argus Pick n Pay Cycle Tour), which enables them to invest in various safe cycling initiatives and cycling development.
The Cape Town Cycle Tour Trust organises some of the largest and most popular cycling events, including the Cape Town Cycle Tour, the Cape Town Cycle Tour MTB Challenge, the Cape Town Cycle Tour Juniors, The Stellenbosch Cycle Tour and the Coronation Double Century. All proceeds generated by these events are equally divided between The Rotary Club of Claremont (to fund charitable initiatives) and the Pedal Power Association (towards cycling development and cycling initiatives).
Mediclinic Southern Africa places science at the heart of its excellent medical services at its 52 multidisciplinary hospitals in South Africa and Namibia. Similarly our Corporate Events division has used this philosophy to position itself as a leader in medical support at major events, including the Coronation Double Century.The Mediclinic Corporate Events team plans all medical services meticulously by gathering information on participants to assess their health risk from a range of medical conditions, including diabetes and hypertension, and saves this on a sophisticated electronic patient tracking system. This provides medical personnel with instant information on the day of the event. At the same time, any additional medical information is captured, and this data provides a valuable medical legacy for current and future planning and possible feedback to other health care professionals, should this be required.
