A group of eleven cyclists have made their way from Johannesburg to Cape Town on four tandem and three single-rider bicycles, covering 1500km over eight days, before taking part in the shortened Cape Town Cycle Tour on Sunday 8 March 2015.
Funds raised through this event will assist The Sunflower Fund to educate, recruit and pay the test costs for potential bone marrow stem cell donors to join the South African Bone Marrow Registry.
Along the way, they visited hospitals and oncology wards to give encouragement to patients being treated for cancer.
One of those taking part is Tak Hiemstra, who received life-saving stem cells from an unrelated donor in 2013.
The tour was captained by Annelies Lievens, a former South African cyclist who traveled from Belgium to take part.
