Read through

Please read through our Indemnity clause. Make sure you understand and consent to all rules and regulations.

Remember when you spent your days without a plan or a worry about the why or the consequences. When your bike was your ticket to any destination, and you were free to follow your own trail. When aimless riding accounted for many unplanned adventures. Looking back, those were days spent wisely. There has never been a better time to be a kid on a bike.

In this attention-grabbing world of digital entertainment, we want them to choose a bike over a screen, to choose the outdoors over the indoors. We need to make it an easy choice for them. It’s fun first at Virgin Active 947 Ride Joburg KIDS.

Pick an age-appropriate route and distance for your child to inspire confidence and watch them go! 9 November 2024, Steyn City, Johannesburg.
