Phil Liggett’s African Safari Peloton September ride
Phil Liggett'sAfrican Safari Peloton
In June 2021 the international team created an exclusive opportunity to join Phil, the voice of cycling, on four exhilarating virtual safari cycle routes through dramatic African wilderness teeming with wild animals.
These events connected a group of like-minded people in a fundraising collaboration to rejuvenate our planet, people and wildlife. The feedback and enthusiasm from these inaugural members has encouraged Freedom to Roam Adventures, FulGaz and the Kariega Foundation to keep the momentum of the peloton going.
Phil Liggett’s African Safari Peloton, Series 2 consists of four virtual rides through the beautiful Kariega Game Reserve. One ride per month, starting in September and running through to December.
