27th July – 01st August Tour de Tuli Tuli Block Wilderness & Nedbank The demand and interest in the cycle tours continues to grow and these events are well known and well respected in the mountain bike community.As a result of the growth and enthusiasm for these mountain bike events, we operate these fundraising events under the Tour de Wilderness brand, an umbrella brand which manages and coordinates all fundraising sports activities for Children in the Wilderness.

There are many reasons why you might want to consider cycling this event. Amongst them are the incredible scenery, wildlife and wonderful community spirit created by this event. However from our perspective the overriding goal is to raise funds for Children in the Wilderness.

Children in the Wilderness (CITW) is an environmental and life skills educational programme that focuses on the next generation of rural decision makers, developing environmental leaders who are inspired to care for their natural heritage so that they become the custodians of these areas in the future.
