The world of cycling is a tight-knit community that’s both tough as nails and always ready to lend a helping hand. The latter has once again been proven as a series of Belgian universities have come together to help rebuild the Jagger building after the devasting UCT fire destroyed it.
According to News24, the Move4CPT project provides a unique link between fundraising and activity. The city of Leuven is part of the renowned Paris-Roubaix race route, and authorities have matched each kilometre with a Euro that registered riders pedal in its Move4CPT project.
The initiative has already generated R180 000 with 84 registered participants riding 38 286km. But the philanthropy doesn’t end there. Cyclists have the opportunity to help out by donning a truly South African kit through bicyclegear – a South African cycling manufacturer and distributor that has designed a new jersey with Belgian and South African themes.
Everything you expect from a premium cycling jersey is included, with fabric technologies and double-wicking material for those sweaty underarms all big features in the design.
The jersey is retailing at R999, with 10% of the proceeds going to Move4CPT. Cyclists can purchase this jersey online or through their network of national retailers.
