So… you want an official finish, and you wish to ride the full distance of 94km in 2020? No problem! On 15 November 2020, The Smile Foundation in collaboration with 947 Ride Joburg and Imperial Wanderers Stadium, will host a 947 Ride Joburg Smile Foundation Cyclethon, which you can do in an exciting mass class at Imperial Wanderers stadium (limited to 500) or selected Planet Fitness gyms (limited to 15 per location) or from the comfort of your own home (unlimited), while watching a world class stream. A cycling instructor will lead and motivate Cyclethon riders for 4 hours throughout their virtual 94 km 947 Ride Joburg race. All riders will be linked virtually to the same race and will complete their 94km in their own time. Every rider will need to use the official App, Motosumo, to track and measure their 94 km ride to receive and official 2020 finish. Participants who choose to attend the Smile Foundation 947 Ride Joburg Cyclethon at Imperial Wanderers will also their medal and receive a goody bag. Well-stocked and festive refreshment stations will be available to the 500 participants who will take part at Imperial Wanderers Stadium. This is to simulate water points during the not-so-virtual race. On top of all that, this exciting event will be aired live via the 947 Ride Joburg Facebook page. Enjoy a fantastic vibe with like-minded cycling enthusiasts all cycling together to buy more smiles for the Smile Foundation.

Event format

  • Only pre-paid pre-entries will be accepted to reduce queueing and promote social distancing.
  • A screening station will be set up at the venue entrance where riders’ temperatures will be recorded and a questionnaire will be filled out. Riders will at the same time be registered and allocated a spinning bike. 
  • Sanitation stations will be placed throughout the venue. Please sanitise regularly.
  • Riders are required to wear a mask/buff at all times when on the venue or when visiting the refreshment stations. You may remove it while riding.
  • Spectators are unfortunately not allowed on venue, as that will push up the numbers past the acceptable COVID-19 event number.
  • A spin instructor will be on stage leading and motivating riders for the duration of the Cyclethon.
  • Riders will complete 94 km on their indoor cycling bikes.
  • Riders will collect their medal and goody bag when they have finished their race together with a sealed beverage.

  • Expect a festive atmosphere and a beautifully set up venue all for the great cause of buying more smiles!
