The aim of Qhubeka 5000 is to mobilise people around the world to ride their bicycles on a specific day to help us to raise funds to connect 5000 people in South Africa with a brand new Qhubeka bicycle through our work-to-earn programmes.
On 14 to 17 July 2017, people from all over South Africa and the rest of the world will participate in the Qhubeka 5000. By committing to ride a distance of their own, they will be contributing to our #BicyclesChangeLives campaign and supporting Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka in their effort to fund 5000 bicycles so that just as many people can gain access to schools, hospitals and better opportunities. The team will be taking on the Qhubeka 5000 challenge internationally, during stage 13 and 14 of the Tour de France.
