Since the start of the 2017 / 18 financial year, a massive shift in the focus of the cycling activities in KZN was undertaken with the focus being put on the development of the sport at all levels across all 11 x districts in the province as opposed to staging top end, international and large national cycling events.
This led to the advent of the KZN Cycling Development Programme with the primary focus being on introducing young riders in predominantly rural districts that have not had such opportunities in the past to the sport of cycling. The existing cycling academies and clubs in these regions were supported and new programmes also being created and included in the fold.
Funding for the programme is supplied by the KZN Department of Sport & Recreation and the funds supplied are utilised primarily in the rider development aspects of the programme as well as allocated to general capacity building programmes.
