Next Endeavour: The Spring Ride2Rhodes
Over the last number of years participants in the events arranged by the Freedom Challenge have expressed an interest in giving back something to the people along the route. After much consideration we have decided that a good starting point would be to establish an educational fund to benefit the scholars living along the Mehloding section of the trail. This section falls within the area formerly known as the Transkei and has been identified in various social development studies as one of the poorest parts of the South Africa.
The Fund offers a 3 year scholarships for promising students to attend the private school located at the Mariazell Mission just below the Malekhalonyane Chalets which is one of our support stations used for the Race Across South Africa and Ride to Rhodes events. http://www.wix.com/allensharp1/fcsf
On Saturday morning, I will once again be cycling out of Pietermaritzburg on the Freedom Trail. This time it will be a shorter ride than last year. We will be stopping in Rhodes. Stay tuned for more detailed updates and photographs en route.
Find your line. Go beyond it.
