The Telkom 947 Cycle Challenge EXPO
An unmissable part of the Cycle Challenge experience is the Telkom 947 Cycle Challenge EXPO – the largest cycling and health-related exhibition in the country and in the southern hemisphere.
All entrants are required to collect their Race Packs from Number Collection, which runs concurrently with the EXPO at the Ticketpro Dome. The venue is easily-accessible and conveniently located in the North-West of Johannesburg.
The EXPO is designed so visitors are routed from the entrance via Number Collection, then through the EXPO before exiting – ensuring that no footfall is lost. With over 100 individual exhibitors, there's no charge to visit the EXPO, ensuring those not cycling have full access to the wide range of cycling related products and apparel our exhibitors have to offer them.
If you’re interested in exhibiting at the largest cycling and health-related exhibition in the southern hemisphere contact Lauren Frauenstein or Chevaughn Jacoby on 011 017 2700 or firstname.lastname@example.org now.
In addition, the Telkom 947 Twitter Ride will take place on Saturday 18 November from the Ticketpro Dome. Tipped as the official-unofficial warm up to Cycle Challenge Sunday, you’ll have the opportunity to mingle with, chat to and ride alongside some of the best cyclists South Africa has produced, as well as a strong international contingent of women who will be here to participate in the UCI 1.1 Women’s event on Sunday. Riders include: Ashleigh Moolman-Pasio, Daryl Impey, and some riders from Team BCX. Only riders who have entered the 21st edition of the Cycle Challenge (and are starting in groups A to G) OR riders who have entered the 55km Telkom 947 Mountain Bike Challenge (and are starting in start groups A to C) will be able to join us for this relaxed, fun and interactive ride. You’ll need to be able to ride 40km in 1h45m or less, otherwise you’ll be enjoying a ride to the finish in one of our sweep vehicles. Safety, as always, is the name of the game, and the intention is to keep the groups tight, to ensure everyone is looked after while you’re out there. Keep an eye out on Twitter or Facebook for more information. .
