Have you entered the Telkom 947 Cycle Challenge yet? If not, then this is a gentle reminder that the deadline for entries to take part in Joburg’s grandest cycling day is on 30 September.
And, lest you have forgotten, the route this year will be ridden in REVERSE on Sunday, 18 November. The challenge will be the same, the reward of finishing as satisfying as you tackle climbs that were once downhills and speed down roads that you once had to grind up to the top of. It will be a fitting celebration of the 22nd year of the Cycle Challenge, over closed roads through the city of Johannesburg, with a ride up the M1. The four hills that made the final 10km tough are now just after the start at Riversands Commercial Park, while the finish will make for a time to reflect on what you have achieved.
For those who want the ultimate challenge, the Dirty Doubles is the ultimate brag for those who complete both the Telkom 947 Cycle Challenge and the Telkom 947 Mountain Bike Challenge, with the latter on 10 and 11 November.
