The Bateleurs and the Momentum 94.7 Cycle Challenge 2012 – Ride with a Purpose

Aug 15, 2012

We would like to remind you that in 2012, for the first time ever, The Bateleurs will participate as a “charity organisation” in the Momentum 94.7 Cycle Challenge, scheduled for Sunday 18th November 2012. Our participation is thanks to sponsorship from Absolute Aviation, Beechcraft, Airborne Insurance and Aircraft Finance Corporation, who have agreed to sponsor a Bateleurs Team. We are hoping to put together a group of at least 100 cyclists who will enter this event and help us raise funds for The Bateleurs. Each entry will require a minimum donation of R400.00 – but anything over and above this amount will, of course, be very gratefully accepted! All entries will be dealt with on a first-come-first-served basis.

Your donation will entitle you to an entry into the Momentum 94.7 Cycle Challenge, a Cycling Shirt, an early start time, and the knowledge that you will be riding for a purpose.

In recognition of this support, and for you to be able to learn more about our sponsors, we invite you to  follow the links to the above-mentioned sponsors on our website
