SAS – Virtual Endure for a Cure 12 Hour Ride
Endure for a Cure is a 12-hour ‘real world’ ride organized by Children’s Cancer Institute. This year due to COVID-19 the ride was re-scheduled from Friday 1st May 2020 to 16th October 2020. TEAM SAS decided to have a ‘virtual’ Endure for a Cure ride on Zwift so all their members and friends worldwide can join in on the action!
To donate directly to SAS Childrens Cancer Institute page go to: www.endureforacure.org.au/my-fundraising/359/sas-cycle-club
The aim of this ride is to raise $50,000 with the challenge of as many laps of ’Tempus Fugit’ on Zwift in 12 hours. The ride is being led by multiple Ultra World Marathon Champion and SAS Ride Leader Chris ‘HOPPO’ Hopkinson. Chris told us, “I am leading and the silent assassin Dennis Menchov, ex-Giro and Vuelta Champion is riding for SAS.”
