Join us as we officially join forces with Cape Epic raising funds for World Bicycle Relief’s education program in South Africa through Qhubeka. The ABSA Cape Epic is regarded as one of the top ranked mountain bike stage races in the world. This eight-day race covers 800km of some of the most beautiful and challenging terrain in the Western Cape of South Africa.
As one of three official charities featured at this race, Qhubeka and World Bicycle Relief will have seven 2-person teams racing for the cause through their charity slots. The funds raised will help mobilize communities through the Power of Bicycles, increasing access to education, healthcare, and economic opportunity.
The cost per TEAM of two is $10,500 (or R106,800) which includes the entry fee, accommodation, food for the event, a Qhubeka team kit, a World Bicycle Relief team kit, full mechanical services, logistics support throughout the event, and the minimum charity contribution. These charity slots will be awarded on a first come, first serve basis.
