#947CycleChallenge 35 000 cyclists ready to hit Joburg streets on Sunday

The Telkom 947 Cycle Challenge takes to the streets north of Johannesburg this Sunday.

The Cycle Challenge, now in its 20th year, is expecting 35 000 cyclists.

The race will start at Century Property’s Riversands Commercial Park.

947 manager, Ravi Naidoo, says this cycle goes beyond the physical challenge, as people ride for a purpose to make a difference to see new changes in the city.

A lot of people haven't been to the new Kyalami. We are taking it into the streets of Kyalami.

Ravi Naidoo, 947 manager
