1965Ride – Cycling for Education – 2017

1965Ride

EVENT STARTS 12/04/2017

The Ride the 1965 Ride is an initiative of the Class of ’65 old boys from Queen’s College in Queenstown, Eastern Cape, South Africa.

The objective is to raise funds for bursaries for deserving learners to receive a quality education.

This is an annual cycle tour from Heidelberg to Queenstown, spanning some 850km over 9 days.

All cyclists are encouraged to raise a minimum sponsorship amount of R30 000 and the money raised goes towards a bursary fund for deserving students who wish to board at Queen’s College. They raise this through corporate donations, and by asking family and friends to join them on their journey by sponsoring an amount per km cycled.

Watch in real-time as the support vehicle will be using a SPOT Gen3 – Satellite Tracking and Messenger Device which can be purchased from IndigoSat SA…just saying 🙂
