Eight days, 800 kilometres and some seriously steep ravines – this is the Absa Cape Epic, one of the most extreme things a person can do with a bicycle. The hors catégorie event is the most televised mountain bike stage race in the world. Each year a new route is chosen, as difficult and as beautiful as the last.
Bids for the remaining 2014 Absa Cape Epic entries will fund Qhubeka, an African charity that rewards promising students with much-needed bicycles. Founded in 2005, the organisation distributes cycles to help build small businesses and get children to school on time.
Former Bok captain Corné Krige has thrown his weight behind the Fish River Canoe Marathon’s support for charities by pledging his commitment to the race to raise funds for underprivileged school children.
