The Discovery 947 Ride Joburg is more than just a cycle race – it’s a platform for people to accomplish something great.

Whether you want to achieve a personal goal, like the many novices who tackle the 94km route; fundraise for a charity under Ride for a Purpose or Vitality Active Rewards MoveToGive; or help those who need a boost during the race, this is an event that allows participants and supporters alike to reach out, support each other, and make themselves and the whole of Joburg proud.

It takes commitment to ride 94.7 km through Joburg, and even more so when you’re riding the distance for a cause that is greater than yourself (many charity riders even do a double lap). Last year, over R11.8 million was raised through riders who took on extraordinary journeys. The fund raised helped enable 160 organisations to continue the good work they do, touching lives across the nation.

Through the fundraising efforts of the 2019 Discovery 947 Ride Joburg, children will be fed; learners will be better educated; sick and suffering people will have better access to treatment and care and victims of abuse will receive support and love. These are just some of the many whose lives are improved thanks to the efforts of Ride Joburg riders.
