Did you know that the humble bicycle is celebrated all over the world each year on April 19th? This may not be such big news to the thousands of South African cyclists who buzz around the Cape each year at the annual Cycle Tour, or the hundreds more who take a trip through the Boland at the Cape Epic, or the sani2c riders who bomb down from the mountain to the ocean every year. However,…"Apr 2021: The psychedelic history of Bicycling Day"
The past weekend saw a slew of major events taking place all round the country with FinishTime returning to action alongside some of the country’s top sportsmen and women in a variety of sporting codes.

Good news in 2021? Surely not? Of course there would not be any good news without a few setbacks along the road as well. Hot on the heels of the recent easing of the Covid-19 lockdown restrictions and the relaxing of alcohol restrictions, a slew of sports bodies have indicated that South African sportsmen, sportswomen, administrators and service providers are also able to cautiously begin some celebrations as events are reintroduced. However, the news that…"Feb 2020: This toolkit is your passport to sport"

More importantly, for many, both in South Africans and overseas, the so-called second wave of the pandemic has turned personal with numbers and statistics becoming names and faces. However, it is not all gloom and doom.…"Jan 2020: Good riddance 2020 & welcome 2021?"
As we begin to enjoy the festive season, so we can also look forward to saying goodbye to 2020 – and for a lot of people there is probably a strong sense of “good riddance” mixed in with our cautious dose of festive cheer. Nobody needs to be reminded that the sports industry has been hit particularly hard hit by Covid-19 in 2020, and no matter what your personal feelings are on the pandemic and…"Dec 2020: Sport aims for a better 2021"

Just as the green shoots of spring have started emerging from the brown winter landscape, so sportsmen and women are emerging out of pandemic hibernation with triathletes, trail runners and mountain bikers finally able to look forward to some racing again. September saw some signs of sporting life with a couple of mountainbike events leading the way, while triathlon and trail run organisers are confident they will soon get all the necessary approvals to restart…"Oct 2020: Start your engines"
As we attempt to negotiate 2020, there is a ray or two of hope that sportsmen and women will be able to compete in some real races in the not too distant future. Although there are still strict restrictions in place, approvals are starting to dribble through for cycling events while triathlon organisers are tentatively opening up entries, and of course there is no shortage of virtual events to ensure runners, cyclists and triathletes can…"Sept 2020: Let’s spring back into action"
