THE 2016 edition of the 100 Miles of Nowhere run by the Cows will take place at eight centres across South Africa on the afternoon of Friday, 24 June involving eager cyclists riding 160 kilometres on stationary training bikes in Durban, Johannesburg, Pretoria and Cape Town.

The challenge is open to all cyclists and sporting enthusiasts and will raise funds for Childhood Haematology and Oncology Clinics (Choc) with riders able to take on the challenge either solo or in a two- or four-person team.

The South African leg of the event that was founded eight years ago by American cyclists and blogger "Fatty" Eldon Nelson, is organised by the KwaZulu-Natal herd of The Cows – a grouping of sportsmen and women who participate in a wide variety of sporting events to raise funds and awareness for CHOC.

Venues: Cadence Cycle Performance Centres in Durban North, Hillcrest, Ballito and Pietermaritzburg in KwaZulu-Natal, Bryanston and Wapadrand in Gauteng as well as Tyger Valley in Cape Town. Date: Friday, 24 June

Time: 2pm to 7pm.
