In addition to an unforgettable customer experience, TransCape also has a mission to ensure we make a real difference to the people through whose land we travel. We support various charities, unprivileged schools and conservation initiatives along our route. One of the things we incontrovertibly believe in is that each of us creates our own history. This will certainly hold true for the TransCape team as we build an event that we will be proud of in the years to come.
Right now, the cornerstone we’re anchoring this dream on is a ride that will unite each and every rider who joins the TansCape family. And once you have joined us, you will help us write that history. We welcome E-bikes as it’s a major focus to include a wide spectrum of keen mountain bikers who would like to join on this incredible journey.
