Rainbow Mzansi Bikers Organisation – Blanket Run 2018

This year, our Sunday Charity Ride at the AutoTrader South African Bike Festival will be joining forces with the Rainbow Mzansi Bikers Organisation for their annual RAMBO Blanket Run.

Last year over 2000 blankets were collected by clubs and their families and were later distributed to communities along with groceries and clothing to the under privileged to combat the harsh winter months in Gauteng.

This year, anyone and everyone can join us with a few options to participate. For just R250, clubs, associations, charities, dealers and their friends and families can purchase a festival ticket AND a 200x220 double blanket ahead of time. Those who already have a festival ticket, can purchase a blanket through the festival website @ cost price for R120 OR donate an amount of their choosing. Visitors also have the option to bring along their own double blanket and therefore waive the participation fee of the ride.
