Johannesburg - Was it a Freedom Ride or a FreeDoom Ride? Were the riders free or were they doomed?
Riders at Sunday’s Freedom Ride, in honour of Nelson Mandela Day on Friday, were left amused, and some who took to Twitter a little less so, when they realised their free T-shirts, had a noticeable spelling error.
Cyclist Peter Berger arrived at the Mandela Bridge at 8am, eager to begin the ride to Soweto.
“I was sitting at the back of a tandem bike, My partner and I put the shirts on but it was only when we started peddling that I noticed the funny statement,” Berger said yesterday.
The back of the yellow T-shirt erroneously quotes Mandela saying: “The purpose of freedoom (sic) is to create it for others”.
