Team name: Qhubeka
At Qhubeka we believe that when we give a bicycles to people who earned them, we are not just giving them a means of transportation but the gift of hope. This is one of reasons we chose the name Qhubeka, an Nguni (Zulu, Xhosa) word that means to carry on, to progress or to move forward.
As World Bicycle Relief's programme in South Africa, we believe in giving a hand-up not a hand-out. This is why we help people progress by giving bicycles in return for work done to improve communities, the environment or academic results.
Team name: Cape Town Giants
Cape Town Giants Cycling Club promotes the amateur and professional sport of cycling, encouraging community participation at all levels using the bicycle for recreation, fitness and competition in a socially conducive environment for the enjoyment of its members. It aims to pool the regions strongest junior riders and present them with the best opportunity to gain exposure to the cycling world.
Team name: Velokhaya
At Velokhaya we use cycling to involve children living in marginalised communities in a positive after-school activity, one which builds their self-esteem and keeps them off the streets and away from the social ills prevalent in their communities, such as gangsterism, crime and substance abuse.
Our aim is to use cycling to grow champions on and off the bike; this is because sport gives young children the skills and opportunities they need to make a success of their lives - skills such as commitment, determination, dedication, teamwork and how to win and lose.
Team name: Wattbike
The Wattbike was born out of a desire to provide the sport of cycling with an indoor bike that delivers the authentic feel of cycling, is accessible to a wide range of users and provides an unrivalled level of accuracy in performance data. Today, the Wattbike remains the first and only indoor bike to be endorsed by British Cycling.
The Wattbike enables the user to train using a combination of power, heart rate and cadence and includes a unique pedal by pedal revolution technique analysis. The Wattbike is factory calibrated for life, ensuring that the user can monitor performance gains over a period of time with complete confidence.
This powerful combination of accurate, detailed feedback combined with a unique technique analysis and the feel of riding of a real bike makes the Wattbike the indoor cycle trainer of choice for cyclists from the elite level through to the sportive rider.
