The official Burry Stander Memorial Ride will take place at the Burry Stander Bike Park in Umtentweni on Friday, 3 January at 4.45pm.
Cyclists are once again set to flock to the bike park to join the Standers in remembering the life and legacy of the South African mountain biking great, who passed away in an accident involving a taxi on January 3, 2013 at the age of 25.
Cyclists will set off on a roughly 60-minute ride on a route highlighted by the famous ‘Mushroom’ Hill, which the two-time Olympian particularly loved to scale.
All cyclists must wear a helmet and are urged to bring their own refreshments. For more information, contact Charles Stander on 082 892 4733.
