The Pedal Power Association is the largest recreational cycling organisation in South Africa. It has some 16 000 paid-up members; the largest component being in the Western Cape where the Association has its headquarters.
The Association came into being as a result of the running of the first Cycle Tour that was to develop into the now-world famous annual Cape Town Cycle Tour (previously called the Cape Argus Pick n Pay Cycle Tour).
The main purpose and object of the Association is to promote cycling and the interests of cyclists, with the following ancillary objectives:
(a) to be a representative body for the furtherance of the interests of cyclists;
(b) to promote cycling as a recreational activity, a sport and as a means of transportation;
(c) to improve conditions for cyclists with particular regard to their safety;
(d) to arrange and organise cycle tours, fun rides and outings;
(e) to co-ordinate cycle tours, fun rides and outings organised by other bodies and to assist them in their efforts;
(f) to establish contact and liaise with and where appropriate affiliate with other organisations having similar or alike interests and objectives.
