About 11 years ago the Jacaranda Kinderhuis founded their cycling development project. The project has also offered a therapeutic input into the lives of the children involved.
Within the first year of the project’s inception, our participation in “fun rides” began and children that were not able to visit over the weekends were invited to join in the competitions. The cycling project does not have a permanent sponsor as yet but we occasionally receive financial backing from the community.
In the 11 years since our first cycling group was brought together, we have taught more than 780 children to cycle and competed in more than 325 competitive events. We focus on boys and girls between the ages of 8 and 18, helping them train with road bikes as well as mountain bikes.
