Our First Bike Run; 1 January 2022

New Year’s Day saw the jumpstart of  our Bikers With Purpose campaign – a monthly ride from Cape Town to a rural destination to support initiatives that address the root causes of violence, inequality, corruption, hunger and climate change. On 1 January, bikers from Cape Town, Switzerland and Swellendam drove along Route 62 to raise funds for Net Vir Pret, the only registered NPO in Barrydale. Net Vir Pret works to aid the development of 150 children who live in Smitsville.

Over 20 bikers came together at Lloyds on Route 62, who opened their beautiful restaurant for the event. The bikers opened their hearts and pockets to raise over R10,000 that will fund education programmes for children in Smitsville.

Children from the community danced and drummed their way into the hearts of the bikers, volunteers and guests, showcasing some of the important work that Net Vir Pret does in the area. After lunch, the bikers were treated to a tour of Smitsville by Conroy Williams, local policeman and active community member. Bikers visited the Net Vir Pret headquarters, where they discussed plans to plant trees and provide the community with resources for vegetable gardens. Net Vir Pret chief Peter Takeolo and manager Derek Joubert were recently awarded Gold Medals by UWC for their commitment to the youth of Barrydale and surrounding farming communities.

The 2nd ride of the year with monthly excursions planned from Cape Town to Barrydale. Our first event was on 1 January 2022 at Llyods on Route 62 where we raised over R10 000 for the support of education of rural children.
