Fix'in Diaries takes Soweto Ladies Edition

Soweto, 5 March 2015Fix’inDiaries is hosting a Ladies’ #BrunchandRide from its workshopin Pimville, Soweto.

Saturday, 28 March 2015 will bring women from all over the city to learn how to cycle and enjoy a specially prepared meal, all before taking on the streets of Soweto for a short group ride.  

The idea for the ride stemmed from the rarity of women at the Fix’in Diaries  Sunday rides as well as off-the-cuff surveying of various women who want to cycle but didn’t know how to or couldn’t find a group they could cycle with.

Riders must bring their own bikes. Fix’in Diaries will have a limited number of bikes available for rental and reservations for bikes can only happen once tickets for the #BrunchandRide have been purchased.

Ladies who have never been on a bicycle before will have the chance to partake in lessons in the morning before they dig into a delicious and sustainable meal served by The Bowery JHB.

They’ll need to purchase the Lesson, Brunch and Ride ticket, and must arrive at the Fix’in Diaries workshop at 475 Bokhunku Street, Pimville Zone 7, Soweto between 10:00 and 10:30AM to check-in.

If after the lessons, the ladies feel comfortable enough to ride on the Soweto streets, they more than welcome to join the ride portion of events. The Fix’in Diaries motto is Leave No Homie Behind, so we start as a collective, we’ll ride as a collective.

Everyone else is to arrive by midday for the brunch with the ride beginning at 13:30.

Non-riders are also welcome to support, and may purchase a Brunch and Ride ticket to enjoy the brunch as well as be entertained by our resident DJs.

Fix’in Diaries has also partnered with DRUMbeat. The DRUMbeat concert will take place at the Soweto Theatre from 15:00 on Saturday, 28 March 2015. We will be offering discounted tickets to the concert along with tickets for the #BrunchandRide to create a full day Soweto experience.

You can purchase the #BrunchandRide tickets from Quicket, and for more information, visit
