  3. Hi Guys, So we have the chance to do the CT Cycle Tour for the first time - we have done many 94.7's. We have friends of friends who can't ride and have given up their entries for us. They have gone through the withdrawal process and nominated us to take their place. We emailed Cycle Tour who told us they would create a 'substitution entry' for us, and gave us a link to click on. I go through the process but get to tab 3. Substitution where it wants the email and password of the guy I'm replacing. I've emailed them again but haven't got a reply in over a week now, and when I call, I get the message: 'all our agents are currently busy' - for hours at a time till the call times out. Has anyone else had issues with substitutions or have an alternate contact that can help us?

Lend a bicycle, donate a bicycle or contribute financially to the purchase of a bicycle, any other ideas welcome. #TEAMGVHS2019 is a group of 20 young development riders from Groenvlei High School on the Cape Flats. Their mission is threefold: - To spread awareness of cancer amongst Adolescents and Young Adults (AYAs) in support of Aris Cancer Foundation - To promote the sport of cycling - To promote peace in their communities The learners have spent the last 2 months training hard in the High School gym on spinning bikes and using 15 commuter bikes to train on the roads, generously donated by the Pedal Power Association, Bike for All and Qhubeka. They have covered distances of up to 74kms, mostly on the flat terrain, and with only 7 training weekends left it is time to take to the hills, Chappies and Suikerbossie in particular. To do that we need them to have bicycles capable of taking on the challenge. Watch our young riders in action on a training ride in December 2018.
