TEAM PURE SAVAGE

About Us

Pure Savage came together at 2011’s Coronation Double Century (CDC). The name was going to be Team Smiles, but when the person who proposed the name was dropping during a training ride because the team kept going out of Zone 2, the name Pure Savage was born.

Team Rides

We normally ride from the Shell garage in Green point every Tuesday and Thursday 5:45 and get back around 7:45 after coffee.

Feel free to pull along for a ride!!
