Rotary Hoedspruit and Lowveld Artist Warren Carrey launch their Collector’s Edition Cycle Apparel
The Rotary K2C Cycle Tour has been raising funds for conservation and social upliftment programmes for the past eight years.
Rotarian Lovelle Henderson says “We are very excited to have collaborated with award winning wildlife artist Warren Carey to design the first of our Collector’s Edition Cycle Apparel for the 2023 K2C Cycle Tour.”
The limited tour of 100 riders will spend one day traversing 100 km on the Timbavati, Thornybush and Kapama Big 5 reserves. The tour starts and finishes in Timbavati and follows a new circular route through pristine bushveld where riders could encounter elephant and even buffalo. Each rider will be presented with a designer cycle jersey and jacket from the 2023 cycle apparel kit.
Designer shorts, technical t-shirts and other kit items are also available. The collection is so sensational that Rotary has decided to allow riders and their friends and family to purchase and enjoy these lovely items from the collection to assist in additional fund raising for the event.
For the next five years Warren has agreed to design an exclusive set of cycle apparel for the Collector’s Edition.
For this first year, we have chosen the dung beetle to appear on the Collector’s Edition Cycle apparel and it also appears on all the stunning advertising posters which Warren designed to match the gear.
The poster this year depicts a dung beetle rolling its dung ball; this will be made available for sale to all participants, volunteers and supporters. Rotarian Lovelle explains the allure of the dung beetle is its ability to roll a ball of dung 3 – 4 times its size as it determinedly does a handstand, and with its back legs propels the ball forward.
