Piket-Bo-Berg Cycle Challenge

On Saturday, 07 September 2019 it was the annual Piket-Bo-Berg Cycle Challenge.

This year it was the 10th year the cycle challenge has been taking place.

The cycle challenge is hosted as a community fundraiser to raise funds for our NPO called Piket-Bo-Berg Residents Association. The role that FruitLips plays at the cycle challenge is to provide lunch parcels to all the community members that worked at the cycle challenge. The lunch parcels is our donation to the NPO and towards the cycle challenge. The FruitLips team has been in charge of the lunch parcels since 2014 and we are planning to continue supporting the Piket-Bo-Berg Cycle Challenge for as long as we can.
