Why the 947 Vitality Short Ride is for you, you and YOU!

Until recently there was a host of excuses one could use in getting out of riding Joburg's favourite cycle race. At around 95km, it was always a tall order for those who hadn't had a chance to properly train for the gruelling event.

Now, with the entry deadline looming, Jenni Green and Steve Saunders have recorded a podcast to assist those who are unsure of whether they are up for the new 94 Vitality Short Ride. At 40km in distance, this innovation is intended to increase the amount of people who could take part - despite the circumstances that may have affected their ability to train adequately for the Discovery 947 Ride Joburg event.

With 5 weeks to go to race day, Saunders - a professional PTS cycling coach - is quick to point out that there is enough time to prepare for the ride.
