HABIT 320 CHARITY RIDE FROM DRAKENSBURG TO DURBAN (320KM) in One Day

 

 

MONDAY 5th December 2011

This is the event that most serious cyclists aspire to ride. 12 hours of vasbyt and camaderie never experienced in any other event. A cycle longer than any stage of the TDF, where the jerseys are worn with pride and your head is held high because you made a difference!

 

In addition to the outstanding long ride, we will also be raising funds for a baby home in Durban.

 

Mark this date in your calendar and start training.

 

 

As far as cyclists go, the folk who want to do the long trip (320 km), pretty much obligatory for real CYCLISTS J should have either done the Jock or a 100 miler this year. We can also consider having cyclists to join us for legs of the ride. Team car(s) will support us for the journey from Harrismith and along the way etc...

 

 

We are driven by coach from Durban 10h00 to arrive at Little Switzerland on Sunday 4th December and enjoy accommodation there

 

 

The ride will take place on Monday.

 

 

Remember it is NOT a race.

 

 

December is AIDS awareness month.

 

 

Join other like minded cyclists for the extreme challenge and all for a great cause.

 

 

Raise funds through www.backabuddy.co.za
