More than 70 leading South African business executives will join cycling champion Robbie Hunter and extreme sportsman Martin Dreyer on the eighth Change a Life Cycle organised by Computershare to raise funds to combat crime.
According to the organisers‚ the 2015 Change a Life tour will cross South Africa’s border‚ taking the cyclists on a tough 540km three-day journey from the Zambian side of the Victoria Falls‚ over undulating hills to the Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe‚ and then to Lake Kariba.
There‚ the cyclists will travel by houseboat to their next stage which involves crossing Kariba’s dam wall and cycling along the Zambezi escarpment.
The Change a Life Cycle Tour was established in 2008 in memory of Mike Thomson‚ a Computershare executive who was murdered at his family home in 2007. It has developed a track record as one of South Africa’s leading fundraising tours
