FAW80 Cycle Challenge – the virtual version (life in lockdown)

This past weekend would have been the FAW80 Cycle Challenge but, alas, due to covid-19 lockdown, it had to be postponed. But, instead of relaxing, the riders decided to have a ‘virtual’ challenge at home instead (fab folks that they are). The goal was to do 30 hours in total between them in a relay format – as long as it was 30 hours continuous exercise. Between them, they did 30 hours – all at home during lockdown, observing social distancing. 

They don’t all have stationary cycles at home; those that do not, replaced it with other exercise like treadmill, walking around the house, etc. (For example, Tienie Bester of Durbanville did 21km of running – 222 laps around his house!) 

On 25 – 26 April, the public FAW80 Lockdown Challenge will take place –  YOU are challenged to do just 48 minutes of exercise (any kind) within 48 hours and raise at least R100 per person – funds will go to FAW animal sterilisations.
