Jacob Kruger, AKA “Blind Biker”
Jacob Kruger, also known as the “Blind Biker”, set himself the task to raise awareness about the capabilities of visually impaired persons. Jacob had two guide dogs before.
On 7 July 2018 he took on the challenge to ride a bike around the extremely difficult Redstar Raceway near Delmas, where the highlight of the day was Jacob’s Vision – himself riding a bike followed by a biking partner giving him directions via a walky talky! Jacob managed to complete four laps around the track, and for the last lap he was accompanied by his biking club riding with him! A very brave and extraordinary undertaking!
Through this event Jacob raised approximately R21 000 for S A Guide-Dogs Association for the Blind, not to mention the huge awareness he raised on the day for our Association!
