"Tommorow at 12 pm, Christo Kloppers and I will start off on a crazy adventure. Both of us are still fuzzy about why we entered this event, but we cannot wait to get the wheels rolling and embark on this crazy adventure.
The Munga is not your average bicycle event. It's a crazy, single stage mountain bike race across some of the toughest terrain south of the equator. A 1076 kilometre rush from Bloemfontein to Wellington in the middle of the South African summer.
To ensure we get to the end we will be riding for a very good cause and raising funds for IEIT Cyberlogic Active #ride4achild in aid of Bright Start Education Support Programme to guarantee access to quality education. I have been involved with Ride for a Child for a couple of years now and totally love and support the initiative of sponsoring children in need of quality education.
Please take the time to go and view the campaign and also what Bright Start Education Support Programme is all about through the link below and consider making a donation towards our fundraising efforts.
If you’re interested in following our progress please keep an eye out for my posts, there is also a live tracking facility on https://mtb.themunga.com/
<... important thing is to get more support for this wonderful initiative! And of course for Christo and I to make it over the finish line sometime next weekend!"
