CANCELED FOR 2023
READY FOR THE CHALLENGE?
The uBhejane Xtreme MTB ride consists of four rides. The Baby horn 100km, the Short Horn 290km, the Long Horn 400km and the 400km over 3 days.
The Xtreme MTB Challenge is the primary fundraising vehicle for the uBhejaneX NPO. It is arguably the toughest one-day MTB ride in South Africa, taking place annually in November. Funding into rhino conservation comes from two sources: donations secured by participants; and direct funding from corporate sponsors, foundations, and private donors.
All conservation funds raised through the uBhejaneX MTB Challenge will be channelled to selected initiatives. These initiatives will help in saving the rhino population and rehabilitation. Along with partnered NPOs, we will provide necessary financial feedback, highlight the impact of funding and how the donations have helped make an impact, media material (photographs and video footage) and donor feedback.
The event has no entry fee and is a self-supported ride. Each participant must supply his/her own nutrition and hydration for the duration of the ride. In past years, participants have had four distances to choose from to cater for cyclists of all abilities – all routes finishing at Hilltop Camp in Hluhluwe Umfolozi Game Reserve.
This year there will be four options for riders:
Participants are expected to raise R2750 to cover the event costs and the cost of their participation which includes accommodation at the finish, plus a R2250 or more donation to support rhino conservation activities.
(Please note – the three-day event has additional accommodation costs)
The riding fee includes riding kit, dinner, bed and breakfast, supporters fuel, uBhejaneX admin costs, bank fees and of course the Rhinos. Additional, we encourage you to raise money for the Rhinos. The more money you raise, the more you help the rhinos.
At the end of the ride, we will have a dinner at the finish. Every rider will get dinner, bed and breakfast with their entry. Additional accommodation is available upon request. Space is limited.
As these rides are intended to raise money for the Rhino’s and be a ‘fun’ ride, we will be riding as a group and not racing. All of our rides are fully supported and we will have support vehicles following us. uBhejaneX shall not be held responsible for any loss or injury during the ride.
