DescriptionThe Bicycle Township Tour departs from Masicorp Chasmay Road Campus, where we share a workshop with the SongezoYouth Cycling academy where you might see budding cyclists from the community in training. Songezo Jim is South Africa's first Black South African cyclist who is now inspiring other youth to take up the sport. As local guide will take you around the township, visiting interesting places and explaining some local Xhosa customs. We visit local library, entrepreneurs and small businesses. During school time ( ie closed on week-ends & school holidays) you will visit a local crèche where the teachers work under very difficult circumstances. Part of the tour proceeds go towards the betterment of their facilities. On Sundays we could include a visit to a local gospel church For lunch, you will either visit an African restaurant or a local lady's home who regularly hosts the tourist groups and makes an authentic African tea or lunch.
