KRUGER TO CANYON BIKE RIDE 2019 ?
Yes Yes I know !

It's over 18 months ago ! It takes TONS of planning and this is the information from the ROTARY CLUB OF HOEDSSPRUIT's website.

It is a 100 km bike RIDE (not RACE) along the edge of the world famous KRUGER NATIONAL PARK and is the major fundraiser of this Rotary Club to raise awareness of the tragedy of the rhino poaching within Africa.

Hoedspruit Rotary Club, District 9400, Limpopo Province, South Africa

For many years now local Rotary clubs have initiated and assisted in running a number of major national sporting events �.. the Cape Argus Cycle Tour, the Ebenezer Mile swim, the Comrades Marathon, the Two Oceans, the Midmar Mile and many others. The Rotary Kruger to Canyons (K2C) Cycle Tour is Hoedspruit Rotary�s major fund raising event and takes place in July each year. The Rotary K2C Cycle Tour is a 100km one day event traversing the Kruger to Canyons Biosphere Region designated by UNESCO in Oct 2001. It is important to note that it is a �tour� not a race. Target participants are: Serious competitive cyclists who will treat the event as something with a real difference Cycling enthusiasts who will �tour� rather than �race�. Families and groups of friends or work colleagues who wish to participate in an exciting event together. In view of the terrain covered during the race we take the following safety precautions: The riders are divided into pelotons. They will need to ride and remain within these pelotons. Each peloton has two armed ranger riding with them as well as 2 support riders and a back up vehicle travels behind within support distance. Monies raised from the project will go towards local community upliftment programmes and organisations involved in anti-poaching activities. Disbursement is controlled by Rotary. The successful inaugural cycle tour was first run in August 2015, and it is now an annual, unique and prestigious event for riders, their support teams, families and friends. The route starts near the Orpen Gate of the Kruger National Park, traverses the world renowned private reserves of Timbavati with its famous white lions, Thornybush with its world renowned lodges, Kapama with its cheetah breeding centre, finaly into the Blue Canyon Conservancy. The finish is at the Swadini Resort in the equally famous Blyde Rver Canyon - the third largest canyon in th world as well as the greenest canyon in the world and also home to the rare Taita falcons
