THE500, a 24Hr-Cycling-&-Spinning-Challenge, hosted by Distance For Difference (D4D), was successfully held for the first time in 2013 and has raised close to R3 Million for various children's charities.
In this sixth installment, cyclists will stretch themselves to the limit of their abilities, to cycle 500km over 24 hours with short breaks every two hours. More cyclists will have the opportunity to cycle one or multiple laps with the core group of cyclists. During the same 24 hours, there will be 24 spinning sessions of 45-minutes each, presented by energetic and encouraging spinning instructors.
All cyclists and spinners are encouraged to raise sponsorships to contribute to the fundraising target of the event.
Please watch the launch video of the 2023 event
