Munga 'There and Back'

Munga 'There and Back'

Personal message

On the 2nd of December, I will be once again traversing the Karoo Desert on my MTB from the centre of South Africa to Cape Town, in the Munga (http://themunga.com).    Described as the toughest race on earth, with temperatures often reaching 50 degrees, little or no sleep, 'washboard' sand roads and the inevitable SE headwind, this is a major challenge every year.    This year due to what we have all been through since March, I decided to extend the challenge and attempt to do a 'Double Munga' while raising money for a worthy cause.   Upon reaching the finish of the race, my aim is to shower, change (maybe a quick beer), turn my bike around and head back to Bloemfontein, aiming to repeat the reverse trip in the same amount of time allowed for the actual race.   This will mean 2,200km in around 10 days.    As I will be turning 56 on the 'return trip', my aim is to raise R56,000. Please support my cause at #pumpforpeace.


#pumpforpeace aim to give kids and youth cycling access through pump tracks in areas that would otherwise not be able to afford it. I have seen first hand how sport can change children's lives in areas of poverty, giving hope and an active alternative to crime and drugs.

A child having fun on a bike is the most natural, wonderful thing in the world and I aim to help give this gift to as many kids as possible in a Cape Town township.

Ultimately, we hope to have a Pump Track in Cape Town built by Velosolutions and provide a sustainable income for several small businesses around the track.

Donations will go towards raising money to build a Pump Track in a Cape Town township providing fun, exercise, hope and a positive outlet for children in disadvantaged communities wracked by poverty, crime and violence.

#pumpforpeace is a global nonprofit association initiated by Velosolutions. It gives kids and the youth local access to recreational cycling through pump tracks in locations where funding issues may otherwise prevent their development, thereby promoting healthy, happy, respectful and tolerant individuals. #pumpforpeace pump tracks are social hubs and a great platform for communities to develop a sense of togetherness through the sport of cycling, events, races and job opportunities around the pump track.
