Ride for a Reason Challenge

From the 21st to the 24th of June, a new event had Knysna riding and walking for a reason. The reason – supporting KET! The event was initiated by Cheryl Carter, who wanted to encourage other cyclists to ride for a good cause. Throughout the week, 65 participants gathered in groups to either cycle or walk.

The main route, mapped by Cheryl, was called Five Peaks and included riding the main peaks surrounding Knysna – Brenton, Phantom Pass, Pezula, The Heads and Simola. Riding 68km, with an 1151M elevation, this was no easy challenge. For those who preferred a more casual ride, KET’s Bernike Maarsingh led them through the contours, starting at the top of Simola Hill.

Cyclists on the first day of the challenge

Not everyone cycles, but they still wanted to show support. So, Clare Bosman kindly mapped a 10km walking route in the forest. We are so grateful for each supporter who showed up despite the cold weather. Thank you!
