The rides will be fun and social, with a focus on engagement and interaction via the ZWIFT app and their social media platforms.
How you can raise funds for Qhubeka:
- by donating to Qhubeka
- “purchase” virtual kit (Qhubeka bikes, clothing etc) for use in ZWIFT
- “donate” to access a limited number of VIP HOT seats at PopUp ZWIFT Lab at the Cullinan Hotel
Participation is easy:
