We are asking all riders to Download mySOS. More information can be found here.

mySOS Follow My Rider

You will need to follow the instructions and the main one is to make sure each day you allow people to track you on the app.

GPS files

These will be sent in a separate email with Dropbox links to the files.

CSA licenses

The Old Mutual joBerg2c is a Cycling South Africa (CSA) sanctioned event which means we abide by their rules. This means that ALL South African riders require a CSA license. If you don’t have one, you will need to purchase a temporary license, so it is in your interest to go to their website here and just get one. SA riders only!! This is for event insurance purposes.

Among the many CSA rules the following ones need your attention:

  • No GoPro cameras mounted on your body / head
  • No head phones linked to music systems while riding.
