Join the ride!

Many of you may have followed the DNA Project MTB Team over the weekend as 15 of us rode 100 km’s over some of the most beautiful (and quite treacherous!) Cape terrain in the 2012 Houw Hoek MTB tour. Have a look at our Facebook page for more photos of our ride.

I had no idea that such incredible support and awareness would be achieved through riding this event as ‘The DNA Project Team’. Our new cycle shirts were an instant hit and the distinctive blue helix’s on our shoulders soon became a trademark of the tour as everyone started recognising us as ‘The DNA Project Team’. Throughout the two day race we were constantly asked what the DNA Project was all about and by the end of the weekend, our mission to raise awareness for crime scene awareness and the importance of DNA legislation in SA had not only been achieved, but exceeded.

Thank you to the awesome DNA Project Team for their commitment to the ride and our cause. Whilst I predominantly rode with my fantastic group of 4 (we couldn’t keep up with the rest of our 11 faster team mates!), I know that out ahead, everyone was spreading the message and doing us proud.

Thank you too to all of the riders who took the time to ask us who we were and what we were doing. Together we can all make a difference in our fight against crime in SA – and what better way to do it, than to do it on a mountain bike in our magnificant country!

Go Team SA!

with thanks,
