When I start to speak about cycling - I am not just referring to a sport that I do for fun, I am talking about my passion, the passion that later became a habit.
My name is Thabo Mshwamo and I am originally from Gauteng province in the Vaal triangle - from a vibrant township called Sebokeng. I started cycling in 2016 at TSiBA Eden Campus in Knysna, from there I started to enjoy cycling - later on joined the cycling team, that pushed me to be passionate and enthusiastic.
Looking back in my life I now realize that through cycling, I have grown as a person and most importantly I have got rid of some bad habits. I now can say that I am a person that achieves his goals and embraces challenges.
Taking part at the Knysna race will be more than just a race to me, it will be cycling at very place where learned to cycle. A place that gave a bicycle not just a bicycle but an opportunity to change my life. through this race I will be giving back to that very same place, knysna.
The funds raised will cover my travel from Cape Town to Knysna and for food and accommodation during my trip.
