Their ages range from eight to 20 years.
Announcing this yesterday, CapeNature director of marketing and ecotourism Sheraaz Ismail said: “It is heart-warming that through this race we can give children with disabilities the joy of adventure. Our giving does not only end with the cycle tour, but continues with several other facilities available on our nature reserves with wheelchair access.”
The children and cyclists towing them are dubbed the Warrior on Wheels Teams.
The youngsters comprise Damian James Gower, Ruan Belcher, Payton du Bois, Nura Mohamed, Jamie Litt, Tiaan Louw, Jacques Junior Booysens, Wiaan Botha and Luca Human.
