Endurance cyclist Grant Lottering is riding the Cape Cycle Route in aid of children with life-threatening illnesses
Grant Lottering left Plett on Saturday on his Im’Possible Dream Tour in an attempt to cycle the Cape Cycle Route in under 48 hrs in support of children with life-threatening illnesses.
Grant had a near-fatal cycling accident during a race in Italy in 2013. He was initially pronounced dead on the scene but surgeons performed an emergency operation at the scene and saved his life.
He was told he would never cycle again, but after a number of operations and rehabilitation, he returned to the site of the accident one year later to complete the race in which he nearly lost his life.
To help 34 children through Reach for a Dream, Grant will cycle the 835km from Plett to Stellenbosch (which includes 16 000m of elevation gain) in 48hrs. The Cape Cycle Route traverses the Garden Route, goes through the Overberg and his journey ends in Stellenbosch.
