The Lormar team would like to welcome Hope on Hopkins Distillery to the 2018 tour village. During your afternoons at this year’s tour you can sit back, breath in the fresh Karoo air while sipping away on G&T’s!

Leigh and Lucy, distillers and owners of Hope on Hopkins Distillery, are keen cyclists and runners … but they’ve struggled to get out and about since opening the Distillery. It therefore made perfect sense to partner with Lormar to be part of the action – and hopefully to take part in some of the riding and running and not just provide the well-earned G&Ts each day. They’re looking forward to sharing their passion for gin, offering tastings and gin and tonics in the race village. You might just even catch them out in the field too: and who knows what will be in their camelbacks!

We Support I Love Boobies
We Support I Love Boobies 1000 667 URBAN GOAT

We are proud to announce that we will be supporting the I Love Boobies initiative for the 2018 Lormar Endurance MTB Tour! Help us raise funds for this great cause.

More about the initiative:

ILoveBoobies is a non-profit company and registered PBO, that raises funds and awareness for Breast Cancer (by selling socks, apparel and receiving donations).
Our aim is to get more Mobile Health Screening Clinics into the remote villages in South Africa, many of these towns do not have hospitals. If a Woman Farm Worker feels a lump in her breast, it mostly gets ignored. The journey to a medical facility takes days of travelling and leave of absence from work and family. By sending Mobile Health Screening Clinics into the villages, there is a greater chance of early detection.

Our vision is to create a movement by partnering with Individuals, Companies and Events that have a platform and a social responsibility towards the woman in their communities, to bring Mobile Health Screening Services to the people that need it most.

By example; The Cape Epic is the toughest 8 day Mountain Bike Race in the World, it’s route takes the competitors through rural South African Mountains and Villages.
ILoveBoobies Activists competed in the event. Shortly after the race completed in March 2017, the CANSA Active Mobile Health Screening Clinic’s, followed the Cape Epic Route, performing tests not only for Ladies but for the Men too. The program includes education & lectures on healthy eating and benefits of exercise, Blood Pressure Tests, Breast Examinations, PSA Testing and advice on the dangers of smoking.

How do I support the cause?

All riders can add the I Love Boobies socks to their entry. They will be placed in your goody bags at the event. You can simply follow the link below, login and add the socks to your cart.

All proceeds raised from the event will go back to the local community to do breast cancer screenings.
