If you are reading this, then you have been challenged!

Challenged to complete MAD2Cycle 2019 - and you are only one of 30 people to have been nominated to take part in this epic adventure across South Africa.

Are you MAD enough?

MAD2Cycle is an extreme mental and physical challenge, as the journey itself is a 1520km long cycle from Johannesburg to Cape Town, all within eight days. This is the second MAD2Cycle tour and will take place between the 12 – 19 April 2019. If this wasn't MAD enough - this is a journey unlike any other cycle tour in that each cyclist is required to bring both a road and mountain bike along, as with each day comes a new terrain; and in each day the peloton will ride between 140km and 250km.

To continue with the MAD2Cycle 2019 journey, you need to accept the following qualifying elements: 

1. You must have completed either a Cape Town Cycle Tour or 94.7 Cycle Challenge within a time of 3 hours and 30 minutes.

2. You must be able to maintain a 30km/h average riding pace and have experience riding in groups.

3. Please note that this event is a fundraising initiative, and your participation fee is R30 000. Hereafter it will be referred to as a fundraising fee, and the total amount must be paid in full by the 28 February 2019 (before the event start date). 


The reason we take to the road in such a MAD fashion, is because MAD2Cycle is a fundraising event, for which the sole beneficiary is MAD Leadership Foundation.

MAD Leadership Foundation, founded and Chaired by Francois Pienaar, is a comprehensive, full investment scholarship programme that identifies academically talented scholars with leadership potential who lack the financial and other resources to reach their full potential.

The philosophy of MAD Leadership Foundation is to change South Africa - one scholar at a time! Watch all about the difference MAD Leadership Foundation makes here.
