67 Minutes of Mountain Biking for Charity

67 Minutes of Mountain Biking for Charity

MTB Mandela Day

Do your bit for charity this Mandela Day and join the Full Sus and Tokai MTB Club team at Trail & Tar in Tokai for a mountain bike ride in Tokai Forest. We’ll be riding for 67 minutes on Friday afternoon and all you need to do is knock off work early (who works on a Friday afternoon in Cape Town anyway), donate R67 to Qhubeka, bring your SANParks Activity Card or R30 for entry into Tokai and meet us at Trail & Tar at 14:00.

Qhubeka are looking to purchase 67 bicycles to change the lives of 67 school children this Mandela Day and Full Sus is offering you the chance to help and do something you love while you’re at it. Click here for the full story behind 67 bicycles and click here to donate R67 via Qhubeka’s Give and Gain project.

The 67 minute ride will be a social one from Trail & Tar to the Tokai parking area, after that it’s up to you. Trundle along and enjoy a chat or activate Strava for an outlaw enduro, it’s up to you.

If you can’t make it to Trail & Tar to join us for the ride on Friday the 18th of July but decide to do a 67 minute ride and donate R67 anyway you can still stay involved by tweeting a photo of yourself with the hashtag #67minutes67bicycles to @FullSussa and @Qhubeka.

Where: Trail & Tar Unit 3, Forest Glade House, Tokai Road, Tokai, 7945.

Tokai Arboretum – Experience The Outdoors

Tokai-ArboretumThe Tokai Arboretum is a park-like area on the slopes of Constantiaberg near Silvermine Nature Reserve. An Arboretum is a botanical garden filled with a collection of trees intended for scientific study.
Tokai-Arboretum-thumbEstablished in 1885, Joseph Storr Lister started Tokai Arboretum as a research project, with the rationale to test which trees from other parts of the world would grow well in that location.
Tokai Forest is the ideal hiking spot with a 6km trail leading to Elephant’s Eye Cave and back. There is a tea room available where you can buy refreshments or enjoy a light breakfast.
