Due to a high number of interested groups, schools, individuals and potential sponsors etc. who would like to take part, the cycle tour has been planned to take place in December 2015. What started as a mere good gesture has now turned into a national project seeking to include each and every South African who loves their history and heritage!
When Johannesburg was originally planned, it was crammed with as many stands as possible to maximise income - especially from the corner stands. As a result, there was very little open space and no public park. In 1886, 12 stands were allocated for a small cemetery between Bree, Harrison, Diagonal and De Villiers streets (roughly where the Traffic Dept is today) but this proved hopelessly inadequate.
