2020 CCPP Group Lions Karoo To Coast Mountain Bike Challenge Postponed To 2021

<KNYSNA>  The 22nd version of the CCPP Group Lions Karoo to Coast Mountain Bike Challenge will not take place on 20 September 2020, as scheduled. Amidst uncertain times as to when cross-provincial travel will once again be allowed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as out of concern for the health and safety of the riders and other stakeholders, the Lions of Uniondale and Knysna have taken the decision to postpone this year’s event.

The Lions of Uniondale and Knysna would like to thank their new title partner: CCPP Group who has committed to being on board in 2021. CCPP Group CEO – Clint Cawood – who is a keen cyclist – gave event organiser – Zandile Meneses, this positive news which means that the event has the backing to produce a top quality experience for riders in 2021.

At time of publication, entries for the event were nearing 50% full. The Lions Karoo to Coast will honour all paid entrants for this event in the most positive way possible. Three are three options available to those who have already entered:

  1. Fully paid entry can be transferred to the 2021 event at the 2020 rate.
  2. A cash refund of 100% of your entry fee.
  3. Riders may also opt to donate their entry fee to the charities that the Uniondale and Knysna Lions support through the event.

Riders can contact info@racetec.co.za before the end of July 2020 to confirm what option they would like to take so that this can be arranged.

Please see the website and social media pages for more info on how to proceed with regards to the policy above.

All proceeds from this event go to charities managed by the Lions of Uniondale and Knysna. The launch of the 2021 entries will take place on the 20th September 2020 and information on this will be at www.karootocoast.com as well as our social media pages.
