Organisers

GW-Logo-2015The Carnival City Macsteel National Classic Cycle Race is organised by Germiston Wheelers Cycling Club and the Rotary Club of Germistion. The event was originally organised by Germiston Wheelers in 1984, known then as The Star 100. It evolvedinto the Germiston Classic, and was held at the Germistion Licensing Department in Wadeville. The Germiston Rotary Club have been involved since 1999 when their involvement was limited to organising the race marshals. Thereafter these two clubs have worked together as equal partners in organising the event, with RotaryGermiston Wheelers providing technical know-how while the Rotary club provides the management and organisational skills. Excellent collaboration exists between the race organisers and the various local authorities through which the event is run.

The main purpose of the event is to raise money for local charities, particularly in support of Rotary Projects, The Rotary Foundation and the further development of amateur cycling in South Africa. Through this event the organisers have been able make significant donations to many very needy charities, particularly in Ekurhuleni.


Sponsors

The Carnival City Macsteel National Classic Cycle Race has been one of the most popular races on the cycling calendar, a fact that makes us, the organisers, most proud. Carnival City has been the principal sponsor of this Germiston Classic cycle race since 2001. Four years later, in 2005, Macsteel joined as co-sponsor and every year since then, the relationship between these two principal sponsors and the organisers has been mutually beneficial and most gratifying.
