Zambezi Cycle Challenge 2018 News Letter 1
Registration is now closed and we have a full field for this years’ 2018 Zambezi Cycle Challenge.
This year, we have increased the field size, and have been able to register a broader representation of mountain bikers from pretty much all over the world. We look forward to hosting you all in Vic Falls and treating you to our famous Zimbabwean hospitality as well as a great ride!
With just below 2 months to go we trust that your preparations are going well and that if you are not going for a podium finish, that you are at least fit enough to enjoy the event.
I need to ask you all to ensure that you have received confirmation from our Registration Team that all payments for your entries, as well as any accommodation you may have booked are fully paid up by the end of this month as we have to prepay the hotels and various suppliers.
Anyone that requires transfers from the airport for themselves or bikes, need to advise Karen on firstname.lastname@example.org as these have to be pre booked.
Our Mechanical team will consist of Graham and Albert from Revelo Bikes in Harare this year. They will be there to repair any mechanicals that you may have and not to service bikes. They obviously will not be able to carry all the spares for every model of bike in the event, so I would suggest that you carry some of the critical parts like hangars for your bike.
Lastly I wish to remind you all that the proceeds from this event are all going to wildlife charities that operate in and around Victoria Falls. These non – profit organisations are: The Victoria Falls Wildlife Trust, Children in the Wilderness Foundation and Victoria Falls Anti Poaching Unit.
I urge you look at what these charities do through their websites and if you wish to know more, do not hesitate to contact us.
We will be in touch again soon with more info and reminders. I leave you with an image of the Victoria Falls spray taken at sunrise this morning for you to look forward to.
