Anna Foundation is proud to be an official charity partner of the Absa Cape Epic 2021. The Foundation showed our support and solidarity by taking part in their virtual 4-day stage race which took place on Zwift between 7 and 14 March 2021. Foundation Director Anna Brom rode all four event stages, covering a total distance of 73.4km and 788m of climbing! This was no mean feat for Anna, who is a trail runner at heart and relatively new to cycling!
What’s more, we were delighted to offer the opportunity for several budding cyclists from our after-school projects at Kanonkop and Neethlingshof wine estates to jump into the saddle and test their skills and stamina over the course of Stage 2 and Stage 3 respectively.
This was an event of many 'firsts'. Not only was this virtual event the first mountain bike stage race to be hosted on Zwift. It was also the first chance for Anna Foundation learners to ride on a smart trainer (a tool used to mount a bicycle that offers resistance, but also has an added benefit of allowing cycling apps like Zwift to control the resistance). It additionally gave learners their first opportunity to take part in an international timed cycling event and ride alongside cyclists from all over the world.
