Join Trek Bikes South Africa and legendary cyclist, Jens Voigt, for a fun filled sunset cycle, suitable for everyone on the 10th March 2017 at Boschendal Estate.

So who exactly is Jens Voigt?

“Who can say that they’ve done 20 kilometers in the Tour de France on a child’s bike?”
“Who can say they were flown off by helicopter [after a bad crash] and came back 12 weeks later for the next race?”
“Who has six children (yes, SIX)?”
“Who can say they broke the 1 hour record?”
“Who can say they have completed the Everest challenge?”

This is not a race! We’re challenging all cyclists. Both serious and hobbyist to help us raise funds for the non-profit, Qhubeka.

Registration is free and for each registration Trek will donate R10 with a goal to reach R15 000.00 for Qhubeka. We need at least 1500 riders to make this possible.

Will you be part of this legendary ride?
