WINDPOMP SJERRIE CHALLENGE

ON YOUR BIKE FROM HOOGWATER TO FONTEIN WATER

This event is a mountain biking experience scheduled for the 22nd of December 2018. We are proud to say that this healthy lifestyle event accommodates the whole family. The easy 25km to the hardcore 90 roads all lead to the fountain of Jongensdal.

This event is the initiative to applaud what the farmers do for us in the Southern Cape (We’ll they give us food everywhere in South Africa)

The Jobs 4 Carbon crew from Vanwyksdorp assist us in managing the 300 cyclists on route in 2017 and they will assist at the water points again this year.
