WHAT WE DO

We ride like never before!

MAD2Ride is an annual fundraising event – the journey is an 8-day, multi-terrain, peloton tour from Johannesburg to Cape Town (1620km). There are 20 MADsters gearing up to ride both their road and MTB to embrace this adventure. MAD2Ride21 will be our 5th consecutive event, and will be taking place from the 8th – 15th October 2021.

And if that wasn’t MAD enough, the team will then take on the 109km CT Cycle Tour route on the 17th October!! *This will be their shortest day of riding…

WHY WE DO IT

To put others first

The Make A Difference Leadership Foundation (MAD) is a holistic full investment scholarship programme. They aim to identify academically talented scholars with leadership potential, who do not have the necessary financial resources, and offer them support in the areas of education, leadership and lifeskills development. MAD’s philosophy is “focused on the development of a select cadre of high performance individuals who, in themselves, are role models who inspire others and who will support each other in the future by giving back to others.

MAD was founded by Francois Pienaar in 2003 and are currently supporting 311 scholars on their program, from all over SA. MAD is the sole beneficiary of the MAD2Adventures NPO.

"Because, as Mandela once said, “What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead. And I get to make a difference by riding in the most beautiful country, alongside my fellow South Africans. #winning."
