JCC endeavours to create an encouraging cycling environment for all, to build and strengthen closer
relationships between the club members at all levels and also families, by engaging members to participate
in regular planned social functions.
To nominate a dedicated committee with zeal, who endeavour to be professional when representing the
JAKARANDA CYCLING CLUB among other clubs in Gauteng North Province, and elsewhere.
To promote cycling Nationally in conjunction with CSA and impart skills for the progress of cycling.
To develop previously disadvantaged cyclists and create opportunities for young cyclists to develop into
future World champions.
To present a National Classic Cycling event once annually according to professional CSA standards.
HISTORY OF JAKARANDA CYCLING CLUB
The initiative of a Jakaranda Cycling Club started in Early 2010, when a name change of the then Telkom
Cycling Club was discussed by the management of the Club. Inauguration of Jakaranda Cycling Club took
place on 20 July 2010, and is officially registered with the Gauteng North Cycling Union.
The club is one of the Clubs in the Province with the largest membership, and still growing.
The Club presents three official races annually of which one is the Jakaranda Satellite Classic, offering two
seeding distances for the Cape Argus Pick n Pay Tour, as well as a 40 km route for juniors and fun riders,
and drawing more than 3000 entries.
The Jakaranda Pre-Argus event, presented on 3 March 2012, and the Jakaranda “Big 5 – Three Provinces”
Challenge, staged on 6 October 2012, are also on the calendar offering three distances on the race day.
These are benchmark events in the Gauteng North Province and are growing in participating numbers and
The Pre-Argus and Big 5-Three Provinces events also form part of the Province’s annual inter club league
The current standing committee was elected at the 2011 Annual General Meeting, held in October, and
although fairly new in some positions, is serving its members as one of the larger and most effective clubs
in the GN Province, in a professional manner.

One of our major aims for 2012 shall be to seriously seek for sponsorships, especially to assist in the
development of our young riders in Jakaranda Cycling Club.
To the committee, I thank the standing committee for their availability, dedication and commitment to
guide the Jakaranda Cycling Club to be one of the best clubs in Gauteng North Province, and the members
who believed in voting for these committee members. May the management team of JCC serve you as
members with pride and lead by example to take the club into the next dimension of success.
A club with a physical clubhouse where members can get together as a rendezvous point for club training
rides and social events is not the privilege of many. My sincere appreciation to Jakaranda Children’s Home
for making this facility available to our club. Also thank you to everyone who contributes so
enthusiastically to make it a homely clubhouse.
There are so many names that I would wish to mention, and I know you will understand, but I feel it would
be unjust to not thank Magriet Zeelie who offered to clean our clubhouse regularly, and doing it with such
diligence, saying that it is her contribution towards the club.
To you, all our members, showing your trust and confidence in joining Jakaranda Cycling Club, and
renewing your membership of the Club, as your preferred choice of cycling club, and to wear your kit with
pride, Thank you.
Herewith I wish every member of Jakaranda Cycling Club a safe, joyful and prosperous 2012!
