2019 Ubuntu Breakfast Run: 1000s of bikes this Sunday

Ubuntu Run Preview 1796316

The Ubuntu Run has a simple slogan – Riding in Unity. There will be runs in each province all over the country and more so all over Africa, with runs also happening in Uganda, Kenya, Mozambique, Lesotho, Swaziland, Morocco, Namibia, Angola, Nigeria and Botswana. Truly, this is an international event.

And like most biking events, international or not, it should be a good deal of fun. The Gauteng run has been organised in partnership with Biker’s Warehouse who are providing the starting venue in Northriding, Randburg, and Suzuki South Africa who will be sponsoring bikes to the marshals, the marshals’ reflective attire, badges and coffee with cookies on the morning.

Gates to Biker’s Warehouse open at 8am on Sunday, 27 January 2019, morning with the usual conviviality and socialising. The MEC of Transport for Gauteng will be in attendance and hopefully will garner ideas like free tolling for bikes, opening the right hand shoulder on the freeway and maybe banning all cars.

The riding part will start at 9:30 and will wind past Hartbeespoort Dam to the Hartbeespoort Holiday Resort, the same resort that hosted last year’s Pretoria Toy Run, Impala Rally and Rhino Rally. There will be stalls and bars at the venue.

This is the fourth annual Ubuntu Run, with the first attracting a handful of cheerful bikers, and seeing it growing every year. Last year, the Gauteng event attracted 850 bikes and this year it is expected to top 1000. Consult your local press (ie – Google) to find out more about your local Ubuntu event.
