EVENT: Joberg2C 2020
01 June 2019 - 01 September 2020

Do you remember reading as a child? The feeling of freedom and adventure in those pages? I recall my favourite children's books with warmth and excitement and I cannot imagine a childhood without this privilege. And yes for most children in remote parts for South Africa it is a privilege to have access to a few books. Would you join us to raise funds for the Nelson Mandela Library Project? 


In partnership with Participate For Good and the Nelson Mandela Day Project, nine libraries have already been established on the JoBerg2C route. 


When cycling the 2019 Joberg2C, we witnessed first-hand the communities touched by this incredible initiative. We loved the fact that the money we paid to participate in one of the most spectacular races was supporting this initiative. 


But we want to do more! We want to help reach more children in smaller villages, allowing them to read, discover and learn. We were enthused by the foundation's movement towards a digital format library, which means they will be able to help even more kids in the future. 


So, in closing, we will be riding the 2020 event and be aiming to raise R140 000 towards a library. We are starting early with this fund-raising effort as we would like the library to be ready and delivered during the event. Which means 2020 riders will be able to see where their money is going.  


Help us make this happen.

Let's get reading
