New Year, New [Cycle] Challenge

It's that time of the year again, a chance to finally tick Joburg's biggest race off your bucket list and Ride for a Purpose! Now in its 22nd year, Cycle Challenge will take place on Sunday 18 November at Riversands Commercial Park with Telkom as the proud sponsor.

We're so privileged to be a part of this special event. Cycling has fewer barriers to entry and everyone can do it on any type of bicycle.

Greg and Lucky opened up entries for this iconic race from Stepping Stones Hospice in Alberton, where they got to meet avid rider Jeff Hudson, who was responsible for raising R661 120.00 during last year's Cycle Challenge which was all donated to Stepping Stone Hospice so they could continue to do the great work that they do for terminally ill patients in their community.

Thanks to the Ride for a Purpose initiative, 116 charities registered in 2017 and raised R15.2 million for their causes. Furthermore, since its inception in 2011, the total raised to date is a staggering R82.1 million!

Enter for this year's Cycle Challenge and use your love for cycling to make the world a better place! Whether you’re raising awareness or funds for a cause, cycling in memory of a loved one or riding for a cause close to your heart join hundreds of people pedalling across the city to make a difference and Ride for a Purpose.
