Be apart of the first Human Rights Cycle Tour
A first of its kind concept, creating synergy between Human Rights and Cycling is the Cape Town Human Rights Cycle Tour, Sunday 29th March 2020. Set your heart racing, ride for Human Rights is what the event is all about, encouraging everyone (the sports particularly cyclists and ordinary citizens) to be a part of this event which has its founding values on one of the most critical aspects globally, Human Rights.
“The list is endless; we can fill up books if we could start listing incidents where human rights are violated daily across the world” Said the Chairman of the Human Rights Cycle Tour. The HRCT route is a ± 75km event and traverses’ major human rights memorials and landmarks, including the Cape Town Parade, the Castle of Good Hope to the site of the Trojan Horse massacre in Athlone where blood was shed in the quest for justice, equality and dignity for all. However, the HRCT, through the work of the Human Rights Centre, is an event that goes beyond the memorialisation of the heroic struggles of the past.
The organizers have gone a step further by extending the event with the Jellybean Junior Event on 21st March 2020 (a week ahead of the main event); this is a version of the race targeted at the young champions between the ages of 3 and 12 years old.
“We cannot talk about human rights and not mention children; they are the most vulnerable members of society whose rights are violated the most” said Mohammed Jaffer, Chairman of the Human Rights Cycle Tour. An event of this magnitude would not have been possible without the valuable support from our media partner brands Cape Times, Smile FM and iTV and the Sponsors RetroActive, Fairsure, Jive and Busy Corner Meat Hyper.
