Fietsryer wil Guinness rekords laat spat

2017-03-16 10:07

Kophou. Wakkerbly. Aanhou. Trap. Ses dae, 132 ure in die saal van sy fiets vir 4 992km. Alles vir liefdadigheid.

Fietsryer Johan Oosthuizen (40) van Uitenhage, stigterslid van die nie-winsgewende organisasie Fuel on Wheels, gaan op 26 Maart die speke vir drie minderbevoorregte skole in die Oos-Kaap laat sing: die Laerskool Innes, die Laerskool Winterberg en die Northern Lights School.

Hy spring om 12:00 by 49 Aalwynrylaan in Uitenhage weg en sal vir ses dae ’n sirkelroete volg deur Hexrivierweg, Graaff-Reinetweg en Daniel Pienaarstraat tot weer in Aalwynrylaan.

Johan hoop om ten minste 160 rondtes van 5.2km per dag te voltooi. Dit beteken 832km per dag en uiteindelik 4 992km oor ses dae.

Die eerste rondte sal dit net Johan, Ruané Wentzel (11), Jamie-Lee Barendse (25), Janecke Schuin (10), die Fuel on Wheels-span en die motorfietsklub Entangled Freedom wees. Daarna is enige iemand welkom om saam met ons fiets te ry, draf of te stap.

Saterdag, 1 April word ook ’n spesiale rondte ter herinnering aan Jayde Panayiotou gehou. Die liefdadigheidstog word daarna by Danskraal in Cuylerstraat met ’n potjiekos- en boereworskompetisie sowel as dans om 18:30 afgesluit. Toegang vir die dag is R20 per persoon.

Johan sê daar is ’n paar redes waarom hy so ’n groot uitdaging aanpak, maar dat dit hoofsaaklik gaan om mense met gestremd-hede te help en om bewustheid te skep.

“Ek hou daarvan om uitdagings aan te pak. Op hierdie stadium leef ek my drome en doen dit om mense te motiveer om nooit tou op te gooi nie.”

En dan, is dit ook die perfekte manier om Fuel on Wheels se eerste verjaardag te vier.
