Border2Beach was founded by brothers, Struan and Lyle Anderson who wanted to honour their late father by cycling across the country on the same route he had traversed as a schoolboy in 1969.
The inaugural Border2Beach Psycle Tour saw four cyclists ride from Beit Bridge to Cape Town to create awareness about dementia while raising R200,000 for Alzheimers SA to train 80 caregivers in the process. Border2Beach starts an exciting new chapter in 2020 as they open the event to the public and take a small group of cyclists on the ride of their lives. A portion of entry fees will be donated to Alzheimers SA and various upliftment projects in towns along the route.
