As the GM of the Chris Burger Petro Jackon Players' Fund, I have decided to ride for our 108 recipients who are former rugby players, most who can no longer cycle, run or even walk, as a result of an injury which damaged their spinal cords.

Besides the physical effort which will be considerable for me every day during the 5 days of cycling approximately 80 to 100kms per day, I have also set myself a goal of raising a minimum of R5000.00 for Rugby's Caring Hands. Realistically and with your help I would love to blow this target out of the water and raise so much more. 

I appeal to you as my friends, family and colleagues to not only be with me in thought each pedal stroke along the way, but also get behind this personal challenge  and pledge some money towards my target. Thank you!

I love mountainbiking, adventuring and just being able to take part in outdoor activities that involve exercise, seeing new places and socialising.
