Riding for Rex -  Storms River Traverse

Riding for Rex - Storms River Traverse

Personal message

Morne and I started riding bicycles together 45 years ago ..... and here we are, still mates, riding to raise funds for rhinos.

I actually got my first mountain bike, a Diamond Back, by working as a rhino anti-poaching unit officer in Umfolozi Game Reserve in the 1990's.  This is where I fell in love with off-road riding and the joy that mountain biking brings, both from a physical and emotional stand-point.  It only makes sense that it is pay-back time now and I have put in 1000's of km's of training for this event (Glacier Storms River Traverse).

My co-conspirator, Morne Jonker, has been roped in by default.  Not only is he one of my closest friends, but he has a deep understanding of and passion for conservation himself.  He, together with a group of family and childhood friends, recently gave me my bike as a milestone birthday gift ..... this I will be riding alongside him between the 9th and 11th August, 40 to 70km per day, in the magnificent setting of the Tsitsikamma mountains and coastline. 

Please help us to raise money to support those who work round the clock, through rain and shine, through sweat, blood and tears, to protect the wonderful creatures through the REX THE RHINO CONSERVATION FUND

The Rex the Rhino Conservation Fund had its beginnings in a friendship that was formed in the bush by two wilderness walking-trail Guides while working for the Natal Parks Board and following in the footsteps of the late great Dr Ian Player.
