Cycling for life

Helderberg Hospice will hold its 7th annual cycling for life endurance cyclathon on Saturday May 20 in the sports hall at Somerset House, Drama Street, Somerset West, from 6am to 6pm. Bikes are placed on trainers with computerised speedometers, and sponsored teams of cyclists pedal their way through a day of stationary competitive kilometres. This event symbolises the endurance with which every cancer sufferer faces their condition, as well as the sustaining care they receive from Helderberg Hospice. Music, big screen TV, delicious food to power the leg-pumping action, and spot prizes throughout the day keep the energy and enthusiasm levels up. Several experienced coaches and well-known athletes will be at the event to advise and motivate the cyclists. Enter a team or provide financial sponsorship to support those who ride in aid of Helderberg Hospice. For more information contact Cheryl or Celestine on 021 852 4608, email or, or visit
