Cooking up a better aQuellé Tour Durban MTB30/12/2022
It wouldn’t be a stretch to say that Daryl Harris eats and sleeps cycling. The chairman of East Coast Cycling Club is also the owner of Cadence Cycling Performance Centre in Durban North and is now also a new trustee of the Club Cappuccino Trust (a peloton of cyclists who regularly beat sun-up for their Durban North rides and most of whom confess a caffeine addiction).
He is also a passionate participant of the annual aQuellé Tour Durban and as a trustee of Club Cappuccino also part of the organising team. Not only is Daryl an aficionado of all things to do with the two-wheeled, human-powered machines, but his heart is set on encouraging both seeded riders and social pedallers to take to the saddle in less than five months’ time for the 2023 iteration of the city’s iconic cycling event.
“Our intention is that it will be a ‘Family Fun For Everyone’ event”, he said. ”Families, clubs, school riders, road-racers and mountain-bikers across the board are welcome and will find we’ve catered for them.”
Daryl went on to say that there is a greater purpose to the pedal-power activities of the weekend of May 13 and 14 next year than simply providing a slick event for cyclists to enjoy. Once again, the event will donate the proceeds raised to The Domino Foundation, the Durban-based NPO which every day impacts thousands of vulnerable lives in the city through their ‘Cradle to Career’ interventions.
“We want to see Durbanites turn out in full support of their fellow eThekwini citizens, and also to have fun while doing so.”
