Are you a hardcore cyclist, or more of a weekend pedal pusher? Do you push yourself to your limits, or every so often push your bike up a hill?
Either way – we get you, and this year, Discovery and 947 want to make moving on a bike fun, easy and feel-good for everyone! Whatever your move,there’s a race you can join to be a part of Joburg’s most iconic cycle event
Are you ready to #RideJoburg? 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 a revitalised look and purpose. It’s the same adrenaline-pumping challenge, but with exciting changes in the mix. You can expect the same world-class event that you have known for the past 22 years, starting and finishing at Riversands Commercial Park and organised by the same trusted Organising Committee.
Also, 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.
