Previously called the Wilde Cycle Day. This is the original Cycle ride over Bothmaskloof Pass; an event with a 22 year history! Organized by the Wellington Lions Club, funds are raised for projects like Operation Brightsight and Diabetes treatment. This year we will solely focus on the road event; an ideal final pre-Cycle Tour ride.
Remember to wear your PPA road funride number.
