On Saturday morning 18 July 2020 we lost one of our own, as Theunis Esterhuizen passed away while out on a group ride, at 96 Winery Rd between Stellenbosch and Somerset West. We console by knowing he was with friends and doing what he loved.
Remembering a Great Randonneur
We want to celebrate his memory with a memorial ride, which currently looks like the WC 300km BRM on Saturday 19 September 2020 (lockdown dependent and we will most certainly keep you posted). Meanwhile, take a moment to remember him from the images and rides below.
Virtual Memorial Fri 24 July
There will be a virtual memorial for Theunis on 24 July at 11am SA time. Please forward to anyone you know would like to join but can not physically be there either due to Regulations or distance. Join at https://us04web.zoom.us/j/7506578795… with Zoom Meeting ID: 750 657 8795 and Passcode: k8VBc5
Coastal Radio SA 25 July
The 12.15*-2pm slot on coastalradiosa.com this Saturday 25 July will be dedicated to Theunis and you can WhatsApp your messages to Gideon on (063) 368-3916 before COB 23 July.

Theunis was part of the Audax community since 2014 and completed over 5000kms with us, including thee 600km BRM’s and received Super Randonneur Award. I’ve been fortunate to share many of these with him. More anecdotes on justkeeppedalling.com/in-memory-of-t and nicoc.co.za/the-circle-of-life/.
