Most of us racing across Europe on #TCRNo5 are privateers – funded from our own pockets. But not being sponsored does not mean that no funding can be raised. And for me, there are a couple of local causes which I’m passionate about and have chosen to raise funds and awareness for. Part 2 is about an awesome bunch of kids, and the equally awesome Herberg Kinderhuis (Children's home) in Robertson that cares for them (if cats are more your thing, checkout my Part 1 project).
Of all the connections I’ve made through cycling, this one has to be about the most random. Riding buddy Theunis and I roll into Robertson with 24 hours and 425km of riding behind us. We’re desperate for a couple of hours sleep, but it’s a holiday weekend and we strike out at every hotel and B&B we try. What happens next leaves us both humbled. So much so, I wrote the story down for my Sister (who’s a story teller). If you have a few minutes, it’s worth a read.
