Are you ready to #RideJoburg this year? Join us for Discovery 947 Ride Joburg on Sunday 17 November at Riversands Commercial Park.

Discovery and 947 are thrilled to share the news that the event returns this year with an invigorated look and purpose.

Introducing Discovery 947 Ride Joburg – it’s the same adrenaline-pumping challenge, but with exciting changes in the mix. Still starting and finishing at Riversands Commercial Park and organised by the same trusted Organising Committee – you can expect the same world-class event that you have known for the past 22 years.

Back by popular demand, you’ll ride last year’s flipped route that spans approximately 94.7km of thrilling Joburg terrain that you get to own for a day!

Along with the City of Joburg, we’re shutting down some of the busiest roads on the continent to offer cyclists of all abilities a liberatingly safe space to realise their goals. This means that you get to cycle safely, while enjoying full road closures along the route.

Whatever it is that compels you to ride – improving your health, beating a previous time, overcoming personal challenges, raising awareness for your cause or keeping that body trim and soul inspired – embrace this once-a-year opportunity to achieve your goals, foster team spirit, and experience the buzz along this awe-inspiring city route.
