Riding a bike is, if nothing else, involves being part of a brotherhood: we care for each other, we look out for each other and we rally around when one of our own hits trouble.
Riding a bike also comes with risks but we accept those as being a small price to pay for the amount of enjoyment riding gives us. Some of us make a living out of riding bikes and, when the risks catch up with us and prevent us from working, it can be tough.
Many of our readers will be familiar with Andy Biram of The Adventure Academy, who has done so much to promote both riding bikes and exploring this fantastic country we call home. Andy was recently in a bad motorcycle accident and was airlifted to Milpark Hospital with broken bones and massive bruising that will keep him off a bike for some time, putting a huge financial strain on his family.
Joe Fleming of Bonafide Moto Co. is no stranger to hospitals, having himself, recently got back on a bike after an accident left him with a broken neck. Joe organises frequent rides and a portion of the proceeds from the next Sunrise Scramble will be donated to Andy’s family to help them through this difficult time.
The ride takes place on Sunday 4th June 2023. Meet at Triumph Johannesburg at 08h00 and ride through to Grotto to Gravel in Magaliesburg. Entry, including lunch, is R150 and R50 of that will go to the Biram family.
If you are unable to attend the ride but would still like to help out, you can donate directly to Andy’s family using the following bank details:
