Johan Marais

“I have 10 bikes, and I ride them all.”

Would you say Johan loves this sport?

Having started riding 20 years ago, Johan Marais absolutely loves to ride his bicycle(s). Whether out on training or just for coffee, he firmly believes that being active generates positive energy.

Inspired by his wife and kids, Johan feels that being healthy and active makes him a better dad and hubby.

“A positive attitude to life in general and appreciation for what we have,” is what he believes keeps him going.

What he loves about cycling is to just be out on his bike, out in nature, experiencing awesome views and the adrenaline rush.

When asked which sports personality he’d like to meet, his response was Chris Froome and Greg Minnaar because they both have such amazing stories.

We also asked him what his standout memories is. He’s response wasn’t surprising – “Getting that new bike”.
It was also finishing an event with his riding partner and best friend but we can only assume which was more exciting 😋

We wish Johan all the best on his exciting days on the bike. Check out his colourful adventures: @rideforcoffee
