Remember that iconic movie cover where ET sits in the front basket of the bicycle as the cycle across the sky? Sending your bicycle shouldn’t be stressful — or out of the world. And the local bicycle transporters seem to be a rather close-knit bunch. Let’s meet them.
Friendly faces at races
There are 10 options below. No outbound links this time 😊
Nico from #bicyclecouriers
Nico — I’m rather happy to report that whether you google ‘Bicycle Couriers South Africa’ or ‘Bicycle Transport South Africa’, #bicyclecouriers is the #1 Top Result in Google’s organic listing. And we’ve never paid for a single ad. Just google stellar service and quality content. Long may it continue.
Joggie’s Bicycle Transport
Joggie — A pioneer in his field, Joggie paved the way for most others listed on this page to follow in his footsteps. And he surely spends the most time on the road. Operating from PTA, Joggie’s Bicycle Transport transports bicycles from Pretoria, Johannesburg, and Centurion to major races all over SA.
Fabian’s Bicycle Transport
Fabian — up and down and in and out, Fabian is now longer a subsidiary of Joggie, despite the similar looking domain names. The intro says Fabian’s Bicycle Transport offers a professional bicycle transport service from Gauteng to all major… and their Sports & recreation services are now also in the Cape.
Philip exits Move My Bicycle
Duplicate — MMB or Move My Bicycle is now Move My Bicycle powered by Fabian’s Bicycle Transport. That sounds rather much like CWC Chris Willemse cycles powered by CycleLab. Anyhow, MMB changed hands once since I sold it in 2018, before being acquired by Fabian for his stable. I do like the new logo.
Japie — the Bike Migration still features all the Ironman® logos on their booking page (sans the required disclaimers). This is something others have been wrapped over the knuckles with. Nevertheless, they are also migration bikes down to Table Mountain for the world’s largest timed bicycle race in March.
Barend — VIP Bicycle Transport and Logistics is new (to me at least). The sleek black trailer operates as a Cargo & Freight Company from Outeniqua street in Johannesburg, South Africa. Rebranded or brand new? Either way, they are coming down to the Cape Town in March for the Cycle Tour.
Andrew — Triptych Resources Pty Ltd operates from Montague Gardens, CPT, South Africa. It is a Business Supply Service that goes above and beyond bicycle transfers. They do Bicycle Transfers, imports, exports, and general logistics. And also, one of our friendly service providers.
Dianne — husband and wife team Andrew and Dianne registered the singular version of the bicyclecouriers.co.za domain name and I am flattered. Welcome to Norm-And-D Bicycle Couriers In partnership with Triptych Resources. Let the good times roll.
Wynand — BCycle Transport Logistix is also featured on John Swanepoel’s Swartberg events and have been doing so for some time. Prince Albert is 2 hrs drive from George Airport and Bike Transport can be provided by BCycle Transport from Gauteng and surrounding provinces.
Dean — All-in-events is now run by Dean, who continues under the banner that ‘it’s not our job – it’s our passion’. And it’s a similar story for Executive Bike Transport, as both domains now show D12 contact details. We live in a small and ever-changing world. Let the sun shine on all of us.
There you have it. Now, where can we send your bicycle today?
