Louwshoek – League Race 3

Our third race of the season takes us to familiar surroundings but an unfamiliar route.  We are heading out to Rawsonville, but not the Slanghoek Valley.  Instead we are going to race around the Louwshoek Triangle on the outskirts of Rawsonville.




Due to numerous requests from our participants we have changed the start times and distances to facilitate riders getting home earlier to celebrate Mothers Day.
