Riding for Rhino Conservation: uBhejane Xtreme MTB Challenge

More than 6,100 South African rhino have been lost to poaching in the last 9
years; a devastating loss the country’s tourism & conservation sectors and
the country as a whole.

The uBhejane Xtreme Mountain Bike Challenge (http://ubhejanex.org/)
is a (crazy) initiative in which activists cycle up to 340km in 16 hours to
raise money for urgent anti-rhino poaching needs via Project Rhino (http://www.projectrhinokzn.org).

Francois needs your help to meet and exceed his goal of R10,000. Please
support him as he cycles a punishing 240 km in the heat of summer on Saturday
09 December 2017.
