“There is a school in Seshego that we are targeting to raise funds so that’s why we did the ride,” said spokesperson of the club Phillip Ralehlaka. 

RIDING FOR A PURPOSE 

“All our rides are for a purpose. We have three tours in a year, every ride that we do we feel that this is a school that we can make a difference. It might not be that much but the little that we gather will give it to them.”

“Some of the contributions from the members that were riding, the teams that joined us. There is a certain fee that they paid which went towards the running of the tour. Whatever that is left will form part of the basket that we are going to donate.” 

They were joined by multiple cycling clubs who almost came on to show support including the Seshego cycling club.
