Enter Cycle Challenge

Enjoy the perks of entering your Company Team!

The Company Teams category offers opportunities to use the Telkom 947 Cycle Challenge as a wellness day, a team building adventure, a powerful source of corporate exposure, and even a way to raise funds for a charity through the Ride for a Purpose platform.

Why not approach your HR department, your boss and your colleagues to experience a fun and fierce way to get more active in a team, and eventually enjoy a powerful sense of accomplishment on a bicycle?

While confident and fit colleagues rise to a challenge; they may encourage less active peers to get involved too. All will discover a way to strengthen not just their bodies but also their relationships with their colleagues, and come to shine as ambassadors of their company.

Company Teams enjoy special perks, including earlier start times and race pack pick-ups at the Telkom 947 Cycle Challenge EXPO before the masses of other participants arrive.

Hospitality packages offer custom-made chill zones for your team to enjoy post-ride, and this can be almost more memorable than all the hours spent on the bicycle.

A separate Company Teams category will also be added to our prize list. The team with the fastest aggregate time will receive R5 000.00 and an opportunity to choose a registered charity they would like to support with their winnings.
