Ride for a Purpose

Use the Telkom 947 Cycle Challenge to Ride for a Purpose greater than your personal goals. Whether you’re raising awareness of funds for a cause, cycling in memory of a loved one or riding for a cause close to your heart, the spirit of the event encourages riders to open their hearts as they take to the roads.

For Individuals

If the idea of using your love for cycling to make the world a better place appeals to you, then join hundreds of people of pedalling to making a difference.

In 2017, 116 charities registered 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!

This year, the Cycle Challenge has once again reserved 4 charity start groups. It means not only can you ride with your friends or fellow activists but you could also be eligible for an earlier start time.
