  1. Hi Guys, Since 2020 has all around made for a bit of a disaster, and I have currently got nothing but time on my hands for most of the rest of the year, I thought it might be a good idea to use that time to do something constructive, instead of wallow in the sorrows, moaning about what 2020 should have been, and while at it, why not try raise some funds for a charity that supports people who really know what suffering is, and who have also lost most of their sources of funding during this time. So, take a look here for all the details: https://adventurelogistics.co.za/echo/ and visit the
  2. Just as many of you do, I am also riding this years 94.7 "For a Purpose". However, the charity I am riding for needs some NON-FINANCIAL assistance from a fellow hubber. They are called Jessica's Friends (https://www.facebook...friends?fref=ts) and they raise funds to assist parents of children who have rare chromosome disorders. All they are looking for at the moment is for somebody to lend them a child bike trailer so that they can train with their daughter and then take her with them to experience the 94.7 as we all do - from a bike! Thanks
  3. Hi Hubbers, Im joining a friend of mine to raise funds to feed the hungry!

  4. Hey Guys, I have some stuff I want to get rid of, to further embrace minimalism. Stuff: Bar Ends, SPD Pedals (Need service), Helmet. I could post an ad for these things but it's a lot of admin to share contact details with someone and all that, so what I'm after is a LBS in Pretoria, or some sort of project where you can donate unwanted and unused bike gear. There must be some sort of place that helps get people pedalling? Any recommendations?
  5. Dear Valued Hubbers, We are honoured to be competing at the 2019 ABSA Cape Epic mountain bike race, in support of CANSA. (www.cansa.org.za) Our goal is to help raise awareness and funds for CANSA in support of their fight against cancer. We are very grateful to be offered this opportunity to help those who are affected by this disease, and we wish to contribute to this cause. We can do so with your support - together we can make a difference! We therefore kindly ask that you please support our cause and the fight against cancer, by making a donation, no matter how small - every cent he
  6. We all have those lonely single socks lying around with an unmatched partner. Now they can come to good use! Looking to pair single socks to donate to the homeless. Based in Rondebosch, Cape Town. Can do collections too. Please please donate. Every sock makes a difference!
  7. Hi Guys The NSPCA has formed a new (non-pro) National Cycling Team... They are looking for dedicated cyclists, sponsors, endorsees, donors and any other person/company who would like to get involved with #teamNSPCA. Cyclists riding for the National SPCA Cycling Team would ride in aid of the NSPCA in any cycling events they take part in throughout the year, and do so in an attempt to raise funds for this great charity. This National Team will consist of more permanent and committed riders than the (equally awesome) 'NSPCA Charity Team' taking part in events like the 947... ALL funds ra
  8. I need a whole lot of help please. At the beginning of November this year I am planning to ride (as fast as I can) across the width of South Africa in order to raise funds for Qhubeka. I would really appreciate any help regarding the route, weather or charity tips. This is the route i have planned so far: https://connect.garmin.com/modern/course/16299606
  9. I have always enjoyed the Hub, and the variety of interests and the various thread topics is something to be admired. HOWEVER, the way the guys/gals come together to work towards a outcome is worthy of praise!! Without trying to cut out the angelic work done from time to time, of which the newest thread is run by 2Bliss (https://community.bikehub.co.za/topic/169450-please-help-a-preemie/page-6?hl=pre&do=findComment&comment=3180134), here's a breakdown of the fund raisers riding the 94.7. *Disclaimer, by no means is this a closed list. But merely the ones I found on a quick search.
  10. Hi all For the last few years I have been riding the 947 Road and MTB races to raise funds for Husky Rescue SA through the Barking Army. The Barking Army raises funds for 4 animal rescue organisations and you can choose which you would like to support when signing up. These are Husky Rescue, Woodrock, PETS and Paws R Us. All funds raised go directly to your chosen organisation and all four organisations are in desperate need of funds to house, feed and take care of all the animals. I know that there is huge support for animal causes here on the Bikehub so I am hoping that some of you will c
  11. On Saturday 24 June, 2017, I'm riding 100 Miles on Zwift at Cycle Lab Fourways to raise awareness and funds for Qhubeka. More than half-a-million kids walk for more than a hour a day to get to school. A Qhubeka Buffalo Bike has been proven to improve attendance and focus and therefore results for kids who receive them. Kids earn their bikes through the Study to Learn programme. The details are here: http://qhubeka.org/2013/?page_id=962 Please support my project. I've committed to raising the funds for 4 bikes. They cost just R 2,850 each. It's really easy to donate. Just click on this link
  12. Good afternoon all. I'm posting on behalf of Bulldog Rescue Angels. These guys to very good work regarding the rescue of Bulldogs, however they are always keen to lend a hand to the other organisations to help with re-homing's etc. Little Hulk (check out the "Show us your pets" thread) was adopted with their help. Please help them out!! Ps. I will be riding, and if all goes well I'll be on my SS. ________________________________________________________________________________ Now from their FB page: https://www.facebook.com/BulldogRescueAngels/?hc_ref=SEARCH&fref=nf Calling all cyclist
  13. The Chaeli Campaign, one of the participating charities. Developed in conjunction with Cape Argus, Pick n Pay and Momentum, the Cape Town Cycle Tour Fundracer online charity portal allows registered cyclists to create their own custom profile and then to appeal to friends, family and the public to sponsor their ride. In 2016 a pilot project to test the platform raised R70 000 in less than three weeks. There are 22 charities to chose from, focused on different areas - community, environment and health. “All the charities were specifically chosen so that there is a variety and that, when you don

  17. Hi, Hubbers, I would like to fix someone's else's bicycle, but don't have all the parts that's needed for it and was wondering whether there might be some of you willing to donate-sort of like Build-a-Bike on a small scale. I need the following parts: New brake and shifter cables and housing, square taper crank, rear wheel with an 8speed cassette, a saddle, chain and new grips; it's an old Giant ATX870 if that helps. I'm in Groblershoop, but there are places in Vereeniging and Bloemfontein where parts can be dropped of. My number is 072 770 2167, and Email 3d.petri@gmail.com if anyone's inter
  18. HI, everyone, every year GF4GF centres ride the 947 with TEAMBeulah(http://beulahafrica.co.za/2016/08/12/call-to-action-help-break-the-cycle-of-poverty/) in order to raise funds to help support ex-students at university.(http://gf4gfcentres.co.za/) So, my idea:Make and sell repair stands made mostly of reclaimed material to raise funds for the bursary fund, and to help maintain the bicycles, etc that are used each year. So, I would like to know: Do you guys think it's a good idea? Is there a market for this? And how much should I ask for the stands; R300, R400, R500? I was thinking of solely
  19. Is anyone following the trip of Ivan Zimmerman riding on his Rocky Mountain from Beijing to Istanbul? I understand that this is for charity, and even with that in mind, it's still a remarkable feat of endurance.

  20. Why fly when you can ride? This year we are riding the Cape Town Cycle Tour again in support of the Sunflower Fund. ...but.... with a BIG difference. We are riding from Johannesburg to Cape Town. 1412km in just eight days on a tandem bicycle. And then we ride the Cycle Tour, another 110km. We will be doing this with 8 other cyclists on the Sunflower Fund Tour of Light. We leave Joburg on Friday 26 February and arrive in Cape Town on Friday 4 March.

  21. I run the NPO Build-a-Bike SA (thread here) I need a 6m shipping container which I'm placing at the PWC Cycle Park in Bryanston. This will be used as workshop, storage and parts drop-off point. A container costs ~R20k. I'm offering any sponsor that is willing to contribute towards this container, or a portion of the cost, the opportunity to brand the side of the container for up to 12 months. Please assist if you can! Thanks, Nick

  23. Hi guys. Proud to announce that I am new to the forum, and that I have committed myself to one crazy idea: I want to ride the Momentum 94.7 on a single speed bike. I decided this after I recently bought a SS project bike, weighing in at only a few kilo's. Rides like a dream, and even wheelies spontaneously. So I decided that the 94.7 is a challenge I set myself, and that I would like to do those tough km's for myself, and a charity. I need some advice on this topic though - if any of you guys have done it before, or know of people who will be riding fixed gear or single speeds in 2014
