Cycle South Africa

This is your opportunity to RIDE TO THE CHALLENGE. 

Join YGAP on a two-week adventure in South Africa!

Raise funds and help YGAP support more incredible local leaders improving the lives of people living in poverty.

You'll experience a unique insight into a South Africa most tourists will never see and make a positive impact and lifelong friends while you’re at it!


Spend three days in Cape Town meeting some of the incredible local leaders we support improving the lives of those living in South Africa's toughest communities.

Then the challenge begins!

Gear up and tackle a six-day cycle along South Africa's iconic Cape Route 62 and enjoy breathtaking scenery as you meander through Oudtshoorn, the Garden Route and Port Elizabeth. Cross the finish line and spend two days relaxing in the beautiful coastal town of Knysna!

About YGAP

YGAP is an International Development not-for- profit with an innovative approach to poverty alleviation. We back impact entrepreneurs - or as we like to call them ‘local leaders’ - with solutions to local problems in some of the world’s toughest communities. Rather than imposing our perceived solutions on a foreign community, we support the local leaders who live there and have developed their own.

We believe the best solutions are entrepreneurial, so we focus on early stage ventures that exist to improve access to education or healthcare, create jobs or build safer homes. We believe this is the most effective, sustainable means of tackling poverty because these local leaders understand the unique challenges of their communities. Our role is to help refine and scale their solutions.
