Two years ago I joined a bunch of crazy cyclists to raise money for a charity The Chaeli Campaign.
This year I'm doing the ride again.
We're starting in Hermanus on 12 March and cycling through to Stellenbosch, the next day (Saturday) we cycle to Cape Town. On Sunday we join the Argus Cycle tour for the last 109Km. In total we'll cover over 300km over the three days.
The Argus tour is the largest cycling event in the South African cycling calendar. There's starting group that is entirely dedicated to Charity. In this group there are a combination of celebrities and people like me who have the intent of raising money for a good cause.
The celebrities in this group include (and have included) people like Lance Armstrong (the intrepid 7 times winner of the Tour de France), Lucas Redebe (South African born soccer star), Francious Pinaar (Captain of the 1995 World Cup winning rugby team), Springbok Rugby player Bob Skinstad and the beautiful tennis player Gabriella Sabatini.

There are two ways you can support the charity, One by donating directly or Secondly - Buy a painting. A portion (25%) of every painting sold is going to be donated to The Chaeli Campaign till the end of March (Argus month.)
