Athlete Journey


Athlete's Journey... Sarah Atmore, Ultra-endurance Cyclist, Cape Town, South Africa

“Rafeeq helped me realize anything, not just finishing an ultra-endurance mountain bike race is attainable. My goal event was the Munga, an ultra endurance mountain bike race across a semi desert located in South Africa in the midst of summer. For 12 months I trained with Rafeeq from RIDEANDRACE,  each session had a specific aim in preparing me for the race. I went into the event mentally and physically prepared for everything and despite it being a challenging event I felt strong throughout.​"

What Is An Ultra-Distance Cycling Race?

If you love cycling and you are looking for a new challenge, you might want to consider ultra cycling. Ultra cycling is a form of long-distance cycling that involves riding for extended periods, often over multiple days, across varied terrain, sometimes in remote wilderness (with wildlife) areas and extreme weather conditions.
