Cycle for life

The seventh annual Cycling for Life endurance cyclathon is a bicycle ride like no other. Longer than the Argus, kinder than the Epic and more fun on a bike than the average cycle race, the event will be held on Saturday May 20, at the Sports Hall at Somerset House, Somerset West, from 6am to 6 pm. Bikes are placed on trainers with computerised speedometers, and sponsored teams of cyclists pedal their way through a gruelling day of stationary competitive kilometres. This event symbolises the endurance with which every cancer sufferer faces their condition, as well as the care they receive from Helderberg Hospice. Music, big screen TV, and food to power leg-pumping action, and spot prizes throughout the day keep the energy and enthusiasm levels up. Enter a team or provide financial sponsorship to support those who ride to sustain the dedicated care of Helderberg Hospice.
