Qhubeka 24 Tar Challenge
On 4-5 November 2017, the Heavy Metal Bikes team of Colin and Bianca Cooper will be attempting to ride for 24 hours on the new Qhubeka bicycles. Laps will be done starting at 11am on 4 November, on the tar road in Heron Banks Golf & River Estate, who were kind enough to allow two questionably dressed cyclists to attempt this feat in their secure estate. The aim is to beat our previous record of 302km, which was set on dirt roads to Botswana in May 2013. The goal is to raise funds and awareness for the charity Qhubeka, which aims to give people a hand up, not a hand out; rewarding children and adults with bicycles for hard work academically or in their communities. We will also be putting the latest Qhubeka bicycles through their paces (or pace) as these bicycles are built to endure tough African conditions and are fully rigid, single speed, steel frame beasts of burden. We challenge you to help us reach our goal with any donation amount, or make it fun by sponsoring us per kilometre or lap ridden! Help us help move South Africa forward.
