Crazy Nomad Crazy Fundraising Tour
Team LFCT is starting to get very excited, but not as excited as Crazy Nomad Jason Doyle and his good friend Tony Visser, who will be starting their epic first of its kind fundraising tour from Johannesburg to Cape Town this coming Friday, 15 December 2018.
They will be doing a Fundraising Ride from Johannesburg to Cape Town (approximately 1 400 kms) on motorised bicycles to raise funds for the Little Fighters Cancer Trust.
The trip will take our riders on the back roads, starting at Melrose Arch, Johannesburg on 15 December 2018 and everyone is invited to witness their send-off which promises to be quite spectacular. Hundreds of Motorcycles from various clubs around Gauteng will escort them out of Johannesburg.
If all goes according to plan, our intrepid riders should arrive in Cape Town on 30 December 2018.
Jason and Tony will be riding motorised bicycles with tiny 60cc engines, which means that they will be doing a LOT of pedaling…
They will be leaving from the Vintage Motorcycle Centre @ Melrose Arch at approximately 9am although they will be there from 7am to chat with well-wishers and do final checks etc.
IF YOU ARE IN THE AREA PLEASE GO AND SEE THEM OFF!!
Below is a map of their route and their approximate itinerary..
Roughly planned route for leaving on 15 December and arriving on 30 December. There are 3 days spare for any problems they might encounter so they will be slightly flexible.

Day 2: Vaal to Hennenman 189 km
Day 3: Hennenman to Bloemfontein 162-185 km
