AWOL Bicycle Township Tours departs from Masicorp Chasmay Road Campus where we have partnered with Songezo Jim cycling academy in Masiphumelele. We also visit BEN (Bicycling Empowerment Network)  a bicycle non-profit organisation that imports second hand bikes, trains bike mechanics and assists entrepreneurs to operate bicycle shops in communities. A local guide will take us round the township visiting interesting places and explaining some local Xhosa customs. During school time, we visit a local crèche where the teachers work under very difficult circumstances. Part of the tour proceeds go towards the betterment of their facilities. A highlight of the tour is to visit a Sangoma (traditional healer) who performs interactive dancing and drumming.  For lunch we visit a local African restaurant or a local lady home who hosts the tourist groups in her home makes authentic African tea or lunch.  10% of all tour proceeds go directly to Masicorp a non profit organisation.
