Sol Plaatje University in association with the Northern Cape Cycling and Cycling SA will host its first Vice-Chancellor’s Cycle Challenge in Kimberley on Sunday, 17 October 2021. This initiative strives to build relationships with the people of Kimberley and surrounding areas. This event also promotes a healthy lifestyle through the promotion of cycling as an activity for all.

Through this event we hope to:

  • Bring people together and have them be part of the greater #MySPU community.
  • Hold a well-organized, professionally run cycle race that is a positive, safe experience for participants who are either cycling enthusiasts or leisure riders.
  • Reach a maximum audience in terms of both, participants and the public to strengthen the ties between the University and its surrounding communities.
  • Create an event and an experience for participants that reflects the values of Sol Plaatje University.
  • Promote awareness on healthy living.

The Vice-Chancellor’s Cycle Challenge will cover a distance of 103 kilometers. Details pertaining to the Cycle Challenge and how you can register will be announced on 2 August 2021.

Please keep an eye on our website and official social media platforms. We look forward to your participation.
