Cape Town - A group of 21 celebrity motorbike riders hit the road on Tuesday to spread the word about Mandela Day, the Nelson Mandela Foundation said.

The bikers, plus a support team, would take six days to travel from Johannesburg to Cape Town, stopping along the way for community projects.

Actor Morgan Freeman was participating in the event, although he was not riding a bike.

The bikers included actor Jack Devnarain, radio personality Jeremy Mansfield, columnist Lehlohonolo Saint Seseli and Survivor SA contestant Hanna Grobler.

Speaking at their send-off, foundation chief executive Achmat Dangor said he believed the journey would "touch people everywhere".

Devnarain said: "The great goal is to remind people that Mandela Day is not just about 67 years of sacrifice and service, it is about living a lifetime of sacrifice and service."
