Pebbles Project
Cycle for change in support of the Pebbles Hemel-en-Aarde Education Project at this year's FNB Wines2Whales MTB race.

The FNB Wines2Whales was born out of the desire to create a world-class 3-day stage race in the Western Cape. Since inception in 2009, the three events, aptly named after the wines of the area, have become a must-do event on the mountain bike calendar with riders from the furthest reaches of the country and the world.

The FNB Wines2Whales has always proudly supported the communities through which the race passes as well as numerous projects and organisations on an ongoing basis, providing much needed financial support as well as access to entries for fundraising.

The Pebbles Hemel-en-Aarde Education Project (HEAEP) opened in January 2017 as a result of seed funding received from the Cape Wine Auction Trust.

The facility opened after a needs assessment showed that the community was in need of quality care and education for the children living in and round Hemel-en-Aarde.

Since opening, the facility has grown to include a three-classroom early childhood development centre, Pebbles Academy, which is the first independent primary school under the Pebbles Project umbrella.

As an official beneficiary of the FNB Wines2Whales MTB race, the Pebbles Hemel-en-Aarde Education Project has three Standard Tented Pinotage Entries (31 October - 2 November), and one sought after Shiraz Entry (4-6 November) available to assist with fundraising efforts.

Entries include tented race village accommodation for Stages 1 and 2 only. Each rider is allocated their own single tent in the race village.
