This Sunday, 12th March, two veteran Cogs4Cancer riders will be tackling the iconic Cape Town Cycle Tour to help raise awareness for the leading superyacht charity.
This year marks the 40th birthday of the 109km South African event, so it's a special one for the riders to be a part of, proudly sporting their Cogs 4 Cancer cycling tops.
Lee Mutch has ridden every Cogs4Cancer event since the start, and is one of the founding members of Cogs4Cancer. This year he is giving up his place to allow new riders into the peloton, and he is taking on the Cape Town Cycle Tour to spread the word of C4C far and wide! Accompanying him on this epic ride is Steve Bridgeford, who completed the Ancona to Antibes C4C ride in 2015.
Back in South Africa, 35,000 riders taking part will begin their journey in view of Table Top Mountain, setting off on a magnificent loop of the peninsular, and will finishing the ride with the iconic landmark looking over them. The event was born in 1978 when just 525 cyclists participated, now it is the most iconic event in South Africa, and the world's largest timed cycling event!
Superyacht charity Cogs4Cancer has been going since 2013 and has raised over 700,00 Euros for both Cancer Research UK and local French cancer charities.
The 2017 ride will take them on a 1400km route from London to Antibes, and they will complete this in just 10 days. The riders will set off from London on 4th October 2017. Cogs4Cancer plan to hit their fundraising goal of 1 million Euros this year. To help them achieve this goal, donate online at www.justgiving.com/cogs4cancer
