A Big Thank You to UPS with our Leopard on Wheels

A Big Thank You to UPS with our Leopard on Wheels

We would like to extend a special thank you to Jasen Smallbone and the team at UPS SCS South Africa for their outstanding service and assistance with a rather unusual 'leopard' that had to get to South Africa as soon as possible.

The special Leopard 29'er carbon cycle frame had been sent from its home in California to be built at Cyclelab in Tokai in preparation for a 10 year anniversary fundraiser event being hosted by Leopard's Leap Family Vineyards on Saturday, 16 August 2014. This unique cycle is just one of the incredible auction items on offer, and since Leopard cycles are currently not available in South Africa, the lucky bidder will go home with his/her very own two wheeled "leopard". 

A few seats are still available for the event, so don't miss your chance to share the special occasion. Tickets are R1500 each and include a sumptuous lunch prepared in the high tech Leopards Leap kitchen by three local celebrity chefs, wines and surprise entertainment.

Environmentalist Braam Malherbe will be the keynote speaker and joined by MC's, Elana Afrika-Bredenkamp and Ian Bredenkamp
