Brad Roets is a teacher and passionate about educating children. Knowing that many kids in South Africa struggle to get to school on time every day due to the long walking distances, Brad decided to ride the Durban Dash DOWN 2016, organised by Massive Adventures. He is using his ride to raise funds for 30 Qhubeka bicycles to help mobilise schoolchildren. He will attempt to do the 620km unsupported race route from Johannesburg to the Station Masters Arms in Hillcrest in under 30 hours, calling this his #30in30 project.
