We have limited the number of riders to 60 maximum and as the name suggests, some of South Africa’s best-known South African sporting icons have thrown their weight behind this initiative. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to cycle alongside the likes Doug Rider, Mark Boucher, Kevin Peterson, Lucus Radebe, Penny Heyns… ( Final 2019 Icons list to be announced)
The African Icons Invitational is therefore also a leadership opportunity, as each of our icons will also be the after-dinner speaker at each of the towns that we sleep over in as we make our way through the route.
