The race is owned by a non-profit organisation called the Club Cuppachino Trust, a group of cyclists whose major function is to take cycling to the less fortunate.

Chairman of the Trust, Mike Lewis, was pleased to be able to hand over the cheque.

“It brings us all great pleasure to be able to hand over R40 000 to the Domino Foundation, an organisation that does so much good for the people of Durban and its surrounds,” Lewis said.

“We hope that we can generate more funds in the future, and that the R40 000 this year will increase exponentially over the coming years.

“We’d also like to extend a huge thank you to all the people of Durban.

“Those who cycled and contributed directly through their race entry fees, as well as those who were inconvenienced by the extensive road closures during the event.

“Your patience and understanding is what allows this event to happen annually, and the end result is that we can stand here today and hand over R40 000 to an organisation who is doing so much good for our communities," Lewis mentioned.

The aQuelle Tour Durban has now raised over R130 000 in two years for the Domino Foundation.

The 2014 event will take place on the 27th April 2014 at Moses Mabhida Stadium.
