CycleLink would like to thank Porsche for the opportunity to test ride these beautiful bikes.
CycleLink members Gavin Kilpatrick and Lida Alberts had the opportunity to test ride the bikes for a few days. As previously mentioned, the Porsche brand is associated with style, class and true workmanship.
Initial impressions of the bike were as expected “WOW”. Lida, a first timer to mountain biking commented on how easy it was to adapt to the bike, comfort and body position as well as the handling capabilities through technical terrain.
The bikes were then set to work at the 2014 Freedom Ride which took place on Sunday the 20 July. Nelson Mandel Bridge was the starting point, through the streets of Newtown to Bramfontein, Auckland Park and along the RiaVia bus route to Soweto where cyclists were treated to a warm welcome by local musicians and also had the opportunity to visit the home of Madiba in Vilakazi street.
The Porsche Bike RX created quite a vibe among all cyclists, comments ranged from “WOW it is Porsche, where did you get it?” to “Those bikes are amazing”. All in all a very positive response by everyone and it created many opportunities for the riders to chat among themselves about the amazing features.
Lida and Gavin would like to thank Porsche for the wonderful opportunity they provided and are VERY sad that they have to give the bikes back.
