2016 Cape Town Cycle Tour Success!

On Sunday, the 6 March, 29 brave souls saddled up to take part in the 2016 Cape Town Cycle Tour on behalf of the Sisanda Fundaytion. It was a beautiful day out with perfect weather conditions and a lot of great energy and support along the route. 

Not only did our riders take to the streets to pedal their way to the finish but they also fundraised for our organisation, enabling us to enrich each of our programmes. Thank you to each and every rider for being a part of making a difference, one pedal at a time!
