Want to ride for a purpose? We have 150 charities to choose from!

With just 4 months to Discovery 947 Ride Joburg, thousands of cycling enthusiasts are hard at work training for the big day!

It is a day to take back the streets of Jozi. It may also be a day to achieve lifelong goals. But for many, this is a day to make a difference by riding for a cause close to their hearts.

<span style="font-size:12.0pt;line-height:150%;font-family:"Helvetica",sans-serif;color:#202020">Last year, Ride for a Purpose raised over R11.8-million for 160 charity organisations and we are determined to raise the bar in support of good causes that move people.

Since the inception of Ride for a Purpose in 2011, over R83 million has been raised collectively for various charities... most of that by everyday cyclists wanting to get out on their bikes and make a difference!

From a NGO/ Charity perspective, Discovery 947 Ride Joburg offers great exposure for organisations. The event has been opened up to all levels of skill and fitness with a new shorter route, aimed at those wanting to move more. This is purpose driven by Discovery’s commitment to get 100-million people 20% more active by 2025, worldwide. Charities also have the opportunity to rally cyclists for the Discovery 947 Mountain Bike and Kiddies Rides that are held the weekend before Ride Joburg at the new event home – Steyn City.
