THE500, is a bi-annual Distance For Difference (D4D) event, that was successfully held for the first time in 2013. Along with the events of 2015, 2017 and 2019, more than R2.2 Million was raised for various children’s charities. In 2021, 10 beneficiaries will benefit from the funds raised with this event.

In this fifth installment, now at a brand new location, the Stellenbosch Flying Club, the aim will again be to have fun, to challenge cyclists and spinners and to raise at least R500,000! So, sign up as an individual cyclist or spinner or as a team (schools, organisations and businesses are welcome) for one of the categories, and make an impact with D4D.

Entry options:

  • Cycling | 24hr Full Rider | 10 x 50 km laps
  • Cycling | 50 km Lap Rider
  • Spinning | 24hr Solo Challenge
  • Spinning | 24hr Team Challenge
  • Spinning | 45 min Individual Sessions
