South Africa Cycle Challenge

12 Days

Are you ready for the adventure of a lifetime? Our Cycle Challenge involves riding over 400 miles through South Africa to raise funds for the Kliptown Youth Program in Soweto! The trip takes place from 26th September to 6th October 2013. Once we have been fitted out with our bike equipment, we will cycle from Port Elizabeth to Cape Town, through the valleys, over the hills, past the sea and through the vineyards. During the journey, you will have the opportunity to visit an ostrich farm, taste some local wines, hopefully spot some whales, and visit Robben Island.

At the end of the cycle ride, we will fly to Johannesburg to visit the Kliptown Youth Program where we will meet the kids benefiting from the Cycle Challenge. Kliptown Youth Program is an outstanding program run by Thulani Madondo, a CNN hero from Soweto. The program offers education, sport and performance art programs to the Kliptown community. It is a program filled with positivity and spirit.

The purpose of the Cycle Challenge is to raise funds to support this incredible program. Each participant will raise $2,000 prior to the Cycle Challenge for Kliptown Youth Program. These funds will make a huge difference to the children of Kliptown and will make the trip much more meaningful.

All participants should arrive at Port Elizabeth Airport on September 26th. After a team meeting that evening, we will set off for Thornhill the following day for the start of the cycling. Over the next eight days we will cycle to Cape Town, with a rest day on the way to do some whale watching. On arrival in Cape Town, we will have the opportunity to visit Robben Island before flying to Johannesburg for our project day at Kliptown Youth Program. This trip is a unique opportunity to explore South Africa whilst raising funds for an important cause. We hope you will join us!
