Wattbike for Them 2017: HUGE success!

In 2016, amateur and pro cyclists rode on Wattbikes at Sports Performance Clinic Gym to raise funds for several children whom had been through traumatic events but could not afford therapeutic services.


This year cyclists rode over 1600km’s and rasied over R38000 for the Tshepong Thutuzela Centre for abused children.

A special thanks to:

Sports Performance Clinic for the venue and use of the Wattbikes.

Checkers for the refreshments.

Mr Felix Burri from Burri’s Events who kept the teams motivated throughout the day.

And of course, all of the teams that took part and made the day a huge success!
