The Chris Burger Petro Jackson Players’ Fund, will be hosting the inaugural ‘Ride 4 Rugby’ mountain bike experience in Caledon in the Western Cape from 8 to 10 October 2017. This exclusive two day stage ride will see a number of SA's most iconic rugby legends hitting the trails in an effort to raise funds for Rugby’s Caring Hands.

During the two stages teams will cover over 120km’s of magnificent Overberg terrain opened up especially for this event. An even balance between single and jeep tracks will ensure that the weekend warriors as well as the more technically savvy will feel a sense of accomplishment when they cross the line with their team!
