Where does the idea for this project come from?

Last year I decided to take on a massive personal challenge, under the form of an Ultra endurance cycling event. I did not shy away, and I committed to race the toughest mountain biking event in the world. The Munga is not your ordinary bicycle event. It’s an insane single stage mountain bike race across some of the gnarliest terrain South Africa has to offer. A harsh and rugged 1000 kilometer from Bloemfontein to Wellington in the middle summer.

This race is my first ever Ultra Endurance event stretching over many days. I have a lot of experience racing short and intense mountain biking events, racing at national, continental, and international level for the past 6 years. However, over the past year or two I have been longing for more and want to dig my teeth into something big which is why I am tackling this challenge.

To be ready for such an event one’s preparation has got to be done correctly, to stand a chance of finishing the event…but I am going there to race it, bringing the preparation for the event to another level. After speaking to a couple friends and people I know in the Ultra world. I decided I needed to put in a big ride roughly 9-10 months before the event. Acting as a shorter simulation ride of the race, to see how my body would cope riding such long distances.


What is THE PROJECT about?

So…If I were to rack up a lot of miles on the bike on Mauritian roads and trails in preparation for this event I came up with a fun and demanding challenge to make this preparation ride a little more interesting all while doing some good for the community.

The project is simple, it consists in riding 1km for every 500 rupees raised, meaning that the more funds we raise the longer the ride will be! This challenge will be completed as a single stage ride just like The Munga, with a few occasional stops to nap and eat, but the aim is to complete the distance in one stretch.

500Rs = 1km

125 000Rs = 250kms

250 000Rs = 500kms

375 000Rs = 750kms

 

Let us see how hard you guys can make this ride!


Who will this project help and how?

This ride will raise funds for TIPA a Mauritian non-governmental and non-profit organization whose mission is to empower vulnerable children to become active citizens in the Mauritian society by favoring their development through the promotion of interactive pedagogy and education to Art and Culture.

80% of the proceeds will go towards TIPA whereas the remaining 20% will help fund my journey to the MUNGA.


Why did I choose TIPA for this project?

To put things simply, I believe that the future generations are about to go through a whole lot of hardship, including myself. So, I think that a little bit of joy and positivity in a child’s life, especially a child that comes from hard living circumstances is uplifting. This is what TIPA does and more: they provide vulnerable children with art workshops where children enjoy exploring art techniques and creating with various mediums. This is also where they are encouraged to express their emotions and opinions freely, where they learn life skills such as participation and respect and where they learn about their rights and responsibilities.


What are the limitations of this project?

To make this project attainable at the time where it will be completed please note that the ride will be limited to 750KM’s which is roughly 3 laps around Mauritius Island about 250km per lap!

If we manage to raise 375,000Rs I will be riding the whole 750km ride in one go aiming to complete the 3 laps in under 30 hours total time, averaging about 25km/h.


How can you follow the ride?

Anyone with a bicycle can join for as long or as little as they want! It would be great to see some familiar faces out on the road and get to meet some new people through this challenge.

All the logistics for the ride, including starting times and passing times at different areas of the island will be communicated closer to the event on crowdfund.mu as well as Instagram and Facebook.

Stay tuned on my Instagram and Facebook pages, to see what it takes to prepare for such a challenge allowing you to take a sneak peek behind the curtains.

Last year I decided to take on a massive personal challenge, under the form of an Ultra endurance cycling event. I did not shy away, and I committed to race the toughest mountain biking event in the world. The Munga is not your ordinary bicycle event. It’s an insane single stage mountain bike race across some of the gnarliest terrain South Africa has to offer. A harsh and rugged 1000 kilometer from Bloemfontein to Wellington in the middle summer.

500Rs = 1km

This ride will raise funds for TIPA a Mauritian non-governmental and non-profit organization whose mission is to empower vulnerable children to become active citizens in the Mauritian society by favoring their development through the promotion of interactive pedagogy and education to Art and Culture.
