27 April marks Freedom Day an iconic celebration and commemoration of the first post-apartheid elections held in 1994.
#Ride4Freedom is a fun social ride aimed to celebrate the freedom of being on two wheels while connecting people and communities by bridging the apartheid spatial divide. The event is further aimed to make ‘owning a bike’ relative and important in both affluent and marginalised communities.
#Ride4Freedom is hosted in partnership with Velokhaya, Khaltsha Cycles, Avalanche Bicycle Company, Bicycle Empowerment Network, Pedal Power Association and the Khayelitsha ArtHub Space.
The ride will start at the Velokhaya Life Cycling Academy the oldest cycling academy in South Africa with a 10km ride through historic areas of Khayelitsha and further include lunch at Cape Towns leading Tshiya Nyama ‘Rands Cape Town’.
Being a free social ride, we kindly request riders to cover their own refreshments at respective stops throughout the ride.
#Ride4Freedom is open to entry, semi-pro and pro cyclists both young and old. *Please bring your own bike*
