What a great way to spend the morning in the school holidays… meeting up with friends on a glorious Ballito winters day and taking a ride across from Sugar Rush Park to our neighbors at Cappeny Estates to hand pick our own strawberries. The kids had the best time and learnt so much from Farmer Alex who really took the time to tell us all so much about growing Strawberries.
And of course we had to take the Sugar Rush Express along with us to make sure all the little ones got back and ALL the punnets of strawberries collected!!!
Cappeny Estates are hosting their Annual Strawberry Festival on the 11th of August so make sure you have got your tickets….
We started The Sugar Rats in 2011 when we saw the need for kiddies escorted rides on the awesome Holla Trails. Every week we would go out riding and the kids stayed and played in the gardens as they were all too little to join us.
So one day a couple of us took the kids out instead and of course it was a huge hit. The Sugar Rats Cycling Academy was born. A brand was created, a cool cycling shirt, weekly rides and monthly Spur Kiddies Fun Races all at Holla Trails.
The sport of MTBing was really taking off in South Africa and parent’s were only too happy to drop their kiddies off under our watchful care and know they were also learning all about MTBing too.
