Cycling for Seahorses

Please support Pieter Verhoef and the Knysna Basin Project by making a donation to the project, Cycling For Seahorses.

Pieter aims to raise R20,000 by cycling 360 km in less than 30 hours for the Knysna seahorse.

The aim is to complete the solo 360NE, the ultimate single-stage mountain bike race in South Africa which takes place from 20–22 April 2018, in order to raise funds for the Knysna Basin Project (www.knysnabasinproject.co.za), specifically for the conservation of the endangered Knysna seahorse.

The Knysna Basin Project is a Knysna based NGO with a vision - conservation and rehabilitation of the Knysna estuary through rigorous science. And through the active conservation of an iconic seahorse species, the entire system (from sea slugs to tourists) will benefit. As Pieter says, “A rising tide lifts all boats.”
