Baobabs & Bicycles

For all you cycling fans out there, if you’re in Louis Trichardt this weekend, do stop by and check out the Kremetart Cycle Tour – so named because the route goes past a significant number of Baobab Trees on the way.   It’s fun for the whole family (there are kiddies races, stage races and mountain bike cross country) and is promoted by the P&L Hardware Cycling Club in conjunction with Kremetart Cycling.  Best of all, EcoProducts will be hosting its very own Baobab Coffee shop (Kremetart Koffee Winkel) at the race venue offering our speciality baobab cheese cake, baobab jam on scones, baobab smoothies and Johan Geyser's unique baobab coffee!  For more details about the event, go to: http://www.kremetartcycling.co.za/
